Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Sound of Music Live! is the telecast of the original film, The Sound of Music, featuring Carrie Underwood in the role of Maria with a heavy focus on the famous songs of the original. There is very little direct discussion of the realities of World War II and no explicit discussion of Nazi atrocities. The final moments of the film contain some peril as the family makes their escape and are tracked by soldiers, one of whom briefly pulls a gun on the family. There is a brief subplot of romance with a 16-year-old daughter but nothing graphic.
Very minor peril at the end when Nazi soldiers track the von Trapp family as they try to escape Austria. A soldier holds some of the family at gunpoint, but no one is harmed. Some brief discussions refer to hostages but nothing is explicit. A brief scene shows children frightened during heavy thunderstorms.
It's important to stand up for what you believe in. Art and music are essential to happiness in life. Children need discipline as much as they need warmth, play time, and encouragement. Familial loyalty and love can guard against difficult circumstances. Good things, such as new love or deeper insight, can come from tragic circumstances.
