In Austria, 1938, an exuberant young governess brings music and joy back to a broken family, only to face danger and intrigue as the Nazis gain power.

StoryBook Theatre is thrilled to bring back one of the most beloved musicals of all time for the holiday season!

Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "My Favorite Things," "Do Re Mi," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen," and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. Based on Maria Augusta Trapp's memoir, the inspirational story follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain Von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire Von Trapp family must make a moral decision.

Presented in concert format, with a full cast and live orchestra, the show is planned to be presented at 50% capacity in the Beddington Theatre Arts Centre space. Should provincial restrictions be lifted, more seats may be made available.

“The sentiments of The Sound of Music are genuine and are presented, unabashedly and effectively, in the show's music, lyrics and dialogue... It is uplifting theatre, appealing successfully and without apology to the better side of our natures.”

– Douglas J. Keating, The Philadelphia Inquirer.


Let us start by saying that the safety of our cast, crew, volunteers, patrons and community is paramount and our plan to move forward will always adhere to the regulations set forth by the federal, provincial and municipal governments.

For those wondering how we plan to make this all work on a production side please visit our SAFE REHEARSALS page for more information. This page will be updated as restrictions evolve. Continue reading below for the information as it relates to our audience.

As we plan to move forward with HOPE!  Rather than hide from the current regulations, we have made the choice to embrace them.  We know this could mean that we will not be presenting our shows to a live theatre audience as soon as we all would like, but we are also excited by the potential this challenge presents.  Should we not be able to present our show in person, we will move forward with measures to stream all our programming exclusively to our ticket holders online, as we did last season.  This plan will ensure that everyone will still receive our top-quality productions by an incredible community of artists allowing us to continue to engage with our community.

Please know that we are very optimistic that, in the coming months, we will be able to see an audience of some shape and size join us LIVE for our productions like they used to.  As the provincial and municipal guidelines for public gatherings and socialization shift and adjust, we are ready and prepared to do the same, moving closer and closer to bringing our community back together again and do what we do best.

Here is a snapshot of our current plan and how it relates to our audience.


We will follow the approved AHS Guidance when it comes to masking when at our performances.  We encourage those in attendance to do what makes them feel safe.


Our first two productions, Singers @ Sunset and The Theory of Relativity will be presented outdoors and will be restricted to small audience capacities.  All tables will be distanced and chairs will all be movable should a patron wish to make more room for themselves away from others.

Indoor performances have been announced and sales will commence with a seating capacity of 50% of the allowable limit.  When booking, your seating will automatically add empty seats next to yours keeping our audience socially distanced. Should restrictions ease and allowable capacities increased, those empty seats will become available for sale.

With an uncertain future for live theatre performances and assembly, we plan to sell tickets to our productions with the following considerations being made:

  1. All tickets will be sold as usual with guests selecting their desired seating for each person attending the show.

  2. All performances will be limited to just 50% of our occupancy being sold, with seats blocked out to ensure proper social distancing.

  3. Should government regulations move to Stage 3 and StoryBook feels it is safe to do so, all additional seats will be released, and the house will be open to full capacity.

  4. Tickets are being sold with the hope that all of our performances will be live and in-person but with the understanding that alternative options may be required should regulations not allow this to happen.

  5. Sixty days out from the opening night of each production, a final decision will be made based on regulations at that time on how the performance will move forward whether it be in streaming format online, live in person in the theatre, or a combination of the two.  Read more about Streaming here.

  6. When the time comes to present our productions live and in-person all social gathering protocols will be adhered to and any safety measures being taken will be noted in an email prior to arrival for the show.​

  7.  All our policies have been updated to reflect our current times and will apply to all new purchases.  The following are two key policies to be made aware of. The full list of policies can be found here.
