  • Maria Rainer (musical theatre mix/soprano, dance, 20-35) A postulant at Nonnberg Abbey – young, free-spirited, warm, gentle, and kind with much determination.

  • Captain Georg von Trapp (baritone, moves well, 35-55) A retired Austrian naval captain. Polished, yet very military in the way he runs his life to repress his sadness over the death of his wife; underneath, he is warm, understanding, and determined.

  • Max Detweiller (tenor/baritone, moves well, 30+) Charming and vital; a man of sophistication who enjoys the good life; true and loyal friend to the von Trapp family.

  • Elsa Schrader (mezzo-soprano, moves well, 35-45) A baroness of taste and elegance, sophisticated, dignified, and mature.

  • Mother Abbess (legit soprano, wide vocal range, 40+, very strong actress) Motherly, understanding, strong and authoritative, but kind.


  • Sister Berthe (alto, moves well) Mistress of Novices, prudish, straight-laced with a quick tongue, she is less tolerant than other nuns.

  • Sister Margaretta (mezzo, moves well) Mistress of Postulants, very kind, understanding, and concerned.

  • Sister Sophia (soprano, moves well) Neither demanding nor critical, sticks with the rules.

  • Franz (non-singing, 30+) The von Trapp butler, rather formal but not without spirit, he is very German and loyal to the Fascist cause.

  • Frau Schmidt (non-singing, 30+) The housekeeper, is stoic, very little personality; she does her job efficiently but without affection. Strong and somewhat dominating.

  • Herr Zeller (non-singing, 40+) Stern and unsmiling, a typical Nazi official whose primary concern is to see that everyone toes the line.

  • Rolf Gruber (low tenor, dance, 17) Suitor to Liesl, telegram delivery boy, later Nazi soldier. A very pleasant young man, somewhat aggressive but in a gentle way.


  • Liesl von Trapp (mezzo, dance, 16-18) The oldest child, blossoming into a young lady with an interest in boys. She has a maternal edge to her and cares very deeply for her younger siblings.

  • Friedrich von Trapp (age 14-16) Tough exterior, very much trying to be “the man” of the family.

  • Louisa von Trapp (age 13) Rebellious attitude.

  • Kurt von Trapp (age 10, falsetto) Gentle and mischievous.

  • Brigitta von Trapp (age 9) Smart, reads a lot.

  • Marta von Trapp (age 7) Very sweet and gentle.

  • Gretl von Trapp (age 6) Must have the cute factor.


  • 5-10 male chorus members (16-60+ years) – Nazi soldiers, neighbors, Salzburg citizens, and Georg’s friends (of naval background).

  • 10-20 female chorus members (16-60+ years) – Salzburg citizens, new postulants, nuns, novices, postulants, and contestants in the Festival Concert.
