* Yakima native Rachel Kunze is the latest to play Maria, the singing, skirt-twirling nun in the Leavenworth Summer Theater's production of "The Sound of Music."

This is the Leavenworth Summer Theatre's 14th consecutive season of performing "The Sound of Music," and the company expects to welcome its 100,000th guest to the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic sometime this summer.

Many will remember Kunze from her stunning portrayal of Catherine in the Warehouse Theatre Company's 2005 production of David Auburn's Pulitzer- and Tony-winning play "Proof." Kunze's performance earned her a Warehouse Winnie Award for Best Actress of the 2005-06 season.

"Sound of Music" performances continue through Aug. 31.
