A Southold teenager who starred in NBC’s production of “The Sound of Music Live!” in 2013 will perform in a New York City concert Wednesday night as part of a special event.
Ella Watts-Gorman, a Southold native and student at McGann-Mercy High School in Riverhead, played Louisa von Trapp alongside Carrie Underwood, who starred as Maria.
Ella will reunite with some of her castmates — including Ariane Rinehart, Michael Nigro, Peyton Ella and Grace Rundhaug — at the concert at the restaurant 54 Below in NYC to sing classics from the musical and share stories from the set, according to the restaurant’s website.
The show will begin at 9:30 p.m. with the lowest priced tickets costing $25. The restaurant also charges an additional food and beverage minimum of $25.
Even if you can’t get into the city Wednesday night, you can still catch Ella’s original performance this Saturday, Dec. 20. NBC is re-airing the three-hour production of “The Sound of Music Live!” starting at 8 p.m.
