“While BCE is independently producing the musical, The Promise is proud to host and promote The Sound of Music as an unprecedented opportunity to bring world-class, family-friendly entertainment to the Texas Amphitheater year-round,” said managing director of The Promise Chuck King. “After all, this was the intention from the beginning – a home for The Promise and a venue that would attract visitors to Glen Rose and bring prosperity to our surrounding communities. What a fantastic way for others to learn about us and then return to experience The Promise for the very first time.”
Brian Clowdus Experiences are intended to immerse audiences in unique outdoor site-specific locations that are all-consuming, mesmerizing and compelling. Brian’s past works include landing a helicopter for Miss Saigon, sinking a ship for Titanic: The Musical, bringing the Civil War to life with a live battle for Shenandoah, re-imagining Christmas Carol in an immersive historic home walk-through experience and bringing an actual horseman all over the country for The Sleepy Hollow Experience. A Brian Clowdus production is definitely not your typical theatre performance and audiences can expect to be transfixed as the alpine setting of The Sound of Music literally comes to life at The Texas Amphitheater.
“When I first discovered The Texas Amphitheater, I knew I would have to find a way to use their incredible venue – the largest permanent outdoor amphitheater in the entire state of Texas,” said director and producer Brian Clowdus. “A rain curtain, a 45,000-gallon moat, and live animals – what’s not to love? I can’t wait to bring The Sound of Music to life in Glen Rose.”
