My personal list goes more like Three Musketeers bars and good Sound of Music' productions. So (a needle pulling thread), chalk one up for me with Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre's new production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Sound of Music. Their well-cast Von Trapp Family Singers will be serenading audiences the rest of the summer with beloved numbers including Climb Ev'ry...
