Sound-of-Music-InsertWe reported earlier in the year that NBC would be airing a new version of the classic tale ‘The Sound of Music’ and that Carrie Underwood would be taking the lead role. Now you can get a look at the first poster released for the special-airing.
The country-singer and former American Idol winner will play Maria Von Trapp in the NBC live TV production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s classic THE SOUND OF MUSIC. You can see Underwood dressed for the role in the promotional image to the right. The tagline for the event is “The family classic comes alive again!”
NBC was casting the Von Trap children earlier this month, as we reported earlier, Stephen Moyer would take the role of Captain Von Trapp. Another casting decision has Audra McDonald as Mother Abbess, Laura Benanti as Elsa and Christian Borle as Max. The special-event will be directed by Beth McCarthy-Miller and Rob Ashford, produced by Craig Zadan & Neil Meron airs on December 5 at 8 PM on NBC.
