The Sound of Music: 

The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "My Favorite Things," "Do Re Mi," "Sixteeen Going on Seventeen" and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, 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.

About TNT Convention:

The TNT Youth Conference is a four to six-day event, generally at the beginning to middle of June, celebrating young people’s involvement in the performing arts. The location changes, based on the availability of a local theatre host. Individual students and adults, members of Youth Companies with their adult directors and chaperones – all are welcome to attend.

 

The official kickoff is on Thursday afternoon (rehearsals for performing companies begin on Tuesday or Wednesday)  with performances in the afternoon and evening. On Friday and Saturday mornings, students rotate among a series of workshops designed specifically for them. In the afternoons and evenings, there are more performances. On Sunday morning, there is an Awards event, recognizing all of the performing companies and announcing the All Star Cast and other awards. Registration for the Youth Conference is open to anyone (you do not have to be a company member to register) and includes all workshops, social events, performances and the Sunday Awards Event.

Workshops: Young people from all across Texas who are interested in the performing arts – particularly theatre – come together to attend workshops ranging from Improvisation to Hip Hop, Stage Makeup to Audition Techniques. The students are broken up into similar age groups, then rotate among 6 workshops, each of which lasts about 1 hour. Workshop are taught by professional theatre artists.

Performances: Companies apply to perform at the Youth Conference, bringing their own show to be performed for the other conferees and the general public, with tickets available for purchase at the box office before each show. Each of the shows receives feedback from a qualified Commentator, adding to the educational value of the showcases. Previous productions have included Into the Woods, Disney’s The Lion King, The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet. . . it runs the gamut from published plays and musicals to original works authored by the company members.
