The Sound of Music Characters

Please note: The age ranges listed are the characters’ ages, not necessarily the ages of the actors.


  • Maria Rainer (musical theatre mix/soprano, dance, 20-35) 
    • A postulant at Nonnberg Abbey: young, free spirited, warm, gentle and kind with much determination.
  • Captain Georg von Trapp (baritone, moves well, 35-45)
    • A retired Austrian naval captain. Polished, yet very militaristic in the way he runs his life to repress his sadness over the death of his wife; underneath, he is warm, understanding, and determined.
  • Max Detweiller (tenor/baritone, moves well, 30+)
    • Charming and vital; a man of sophistication who enjoys the good life; true and loyal friend to the von Trapp family.
  • Elsa Schrader (mezzo soprano, moves well, 35-45)
    • A baroness of taste and elegance, sophisticated, dignified, and mature.
  • Mother Abbess (legit soprano, wide vocal range, 40+, very strong actress)
    • Motherly, understanding, strong and authoritative, but kind.


All children, apart from their character description, must be able to be conservative with their emotions and ‘serious’.

  • Liesl von Trapp (mezzo, dance, age 16)
    • The oldest child, blossoming into a young lady with an interest in boys. She has a maternal edge to her and cares very deeply for her younger siblings.
  • Friedrich von Trapp (age 14)
    • Tough exterior, very much trying to be the ‘man’ of the family.
  • Louisa von Trapp (age 13)
    • Rebellious attitude.
  • Kurt von Trapp (falsetto, age 10)
    • Gentle and mischievous.
  • Brigitta von Trapp (age 9)
    • Smart, reads a lot.
  • Marta von Trapp (age 7)
    • Very sweet and gentle.
  • Gretl von Trapp (6)
    • Must have the cute factor.


  • Sister Berthe (alto, moves well)
    • Mistress of Novices, prudish, straight laced with a quick tongue, she is less tolerant than other nuns
  • Sister Margaretta (mezzo, moves well)
    • Mistress of Postulants, very kind, understanding and concerned.
  • Sister Sophia (soprano, moves well)
    • Neither demanding nor critical, sticks with the rules.
  • Franz (non-singing, 30+)
    • The von Trapp butler, rather formal but not without spirit, he is very German and loyal to the Fascist cause.
  • Frau Schmidt (non-singing, 30+)
    • The housekeeper, stoic, very little personality; she does her job efficiently but without affection. Strong and somewhat dominating.
  • Herr Zeller (non-singing, 40+)
    • Stern and unsmiling, a typical Nazi official whose primary concern is to see that everyone toes the line.
  • Rolf Gruber (low tenor, dance, 17)
    • Suitor to Liesl, telegram delivery boy, later Nazi soldier. A very pleasant young man, somewhat aggressive but in a gentle way.
