Teachers Resources

Introduction

In this Education Resource Pack we have included a variety of background information and follow up activities to enhance your students’ experience of a visit to our wonderful stage production of The Sound of Music.

We would highly recommend it to children and young people of all ages.

Younger children will enjoy the music, the dancing and the beautiful sets, as well as the fabulous performances by children of their own age. Older children will be able to create their own response to the themes of the show and we have included a series of follow up ideas with particular reference to AusVELS.

Each page also indicates curriculum links for primary or secondary teaching. The historical background to the play would make an excellent starting point for History, and there is a wealth of information of particular interest to students of Drama, Music or Design, aimed at students from years 3 to 12.

We hope you find this pack useful. Enjoy the show!
