MONROE - Monroe High School Musical Director Jennifer Moehn admits part of the reason MHS is putting on the "The Sound of Music" is because the movie came out the same year she was born. "It's the 50th anniversary of the movie, so that tells you how old I am," Moehn said. "It also shows a little bit of our Swiss heritage as far as our costume choices."
