Presented in cooperation with The Rogers & Hammerstein Organization, Doug Elkins and Friends presents “Fraülein Maria,” a family-friendly event where the audience sings along to familiar “The Sound of Music” songs.

According to The New York Times, “Mr. Elkins’ ceaselessly brilliant and often hilarious take on ‘The Sound of Music’ is a fount of unending movement ideas and about as much visceral pleasure as it’s possible to have in theater.”

In The New Yorker, Joan Acocella wrote, “A parody of, and a love letter to, ‘The Sound of Music.'”

Two shows are scheduled: Friday and Saturday, July 1 and 2, at 8 pm, at the M.V. Regional High School’s Performing Arts Center, in Oak Bluffs. For more information and tickets, call 508-645-9662 or visit
