Six members of the Elkins family, who own Rittenhouse Electric in Ardmore, will debut this weekend in Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El's production of "The Sound of Music." The Elkins take the stage March 9, 10, 16 and 17.
A Patch calendar listing about the play reads:
Like the Von Trapp family in the Sound of Music, the Elkins family, owners of Rittenhouse Electric Supply located in Ardmore for the last 56 years, is a family of singers. Six members of the family (three generations) are appearing in a local production of the Sound of Music-- March 9, 10, 16, and 17 at Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El in Wynnewood.
Kristine Elkins plays Maria Rainer the soon-to-be nun who becomes the Von Trapp’s governess. Michael Elkins (Kristine’s brother-in-law) creates the role of Capt. Georg Von Trapp, father of the seven children. Roslyn Elkins as Mother Abbess shows them the way to “Climb Every Mountain.” And Jerry Elkins participates as Herr Ulrich. All four work every day at Rittenhouse Electric Supply. Two of Michael’s children Benjamin and Lila Elkins also appear as Friedrich and Gretl Von Trapp.
