NIU Annuitants to see ‘Sound of Music’

The Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association is planning a trip to the Fireside Theatre in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, to see “The Sound of Music” on Wednesday, March 9.

Seats are available, but are limited to 25 because of COVID-19 protocols. The reservation deadline is Feb. 16, or until seats are sold out.

Based on a true story set in Austria in 1938, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music” tells the story of a young postulant nun sent to care for the seven children of a widowed naval officer. Maria reintroduces music and warmth to their home and quickly charms both the children and their father. Favorite songs such as “Do Re Mi” and “Climb Every Mountain” fill this time-honored classic.

The group will departs DeKalb at 9 a.m. for the 1:15 p.m. matinee performance. Lunch is included. The fee is $149 for members of the NIU Annuitants Association.
