Post How TSOM affected you
It seems like many people end up hating the show after they do it!
Has TSOM affected you in a good or bad way?

I honestly learned a lesson while doing it.. not because of the script, but because of a certain cast member.

It has left its mark such that I've grown to love it the most out of all the classic musicals. I think there is something so fulfilling in it, and something that sums up everything that Rodgers & Hammerstein stood for in their body of work. It has also left its mark when I visit come places in Singapore, especially in my country's national island resort of Sentosa, where some parts make me think of certain songs from the show. I really think that my affection for the show has grown over time, like wine ripening with age.

I'm extremely grateful for this play actually. It's not the best musical ever, but it was the first stage shoe I was even in. I was 6 and my mom convinced me to audition because she had always loved The Sound of Music. I've been in love with theater ever since. And I learned a lot doing it in 7th grade (I was Louisa). It was my first actual show with lines and it helped me develop myself as an actress. The kids were all great too. We had the best time together. We really were like siblings.

It wasn't necessarily my favorite musical, but I was a Freshman and tried out and got in! Even though it was a minor role (Adm. von Schreiber), it was a great experience and I established a ton of friendships with people in all different circles.

Not to mention it is nearly impossible to feel sad around those songs. I get goosebumps anytime I listen to "Climb Every Mountain."

This is how my young children reacted to a recent SING-A-LONG show (the film, in 70mm) where they saw it for the first time.
