The Sound of Music to return to Leavenworth Summer Theater in 2016
For 20 years in a row, the Leavenworth Summer Theater had performed "The Sound of Muisc." It was the signature show of LST, and helped them become financially viable over the years. It drew sold out crowds year after year. But in 2016, it did not happen. You see, every year, LST must secure the rights to perform the show.

"Rogers and Hammerstein have the rights to the music. Last year, in 2014, when we applied for 2015, the rights were restricted by Rogers and Hammerstein due to the national tour that was going to start this month, Sept. of 2015," said Susan Hufman, LST executive director.

Leavenworth Summer Theater could not wait for the rights to become available again for 2015, so the LST Board decided to perform another show, thus ending the 20 year streak of performing "The Sound of Music."

Many people were disappointed, locals and tourists alike. They called, wrote, emailed LST and the Leavenworth Chamber. But there was nothing LST could do.
