The 29-year-old country star will take on the part in a three-hour event during the 2013 holiday season.
“We’re thrilled to be presenting the Broadway version of The Sound of Music live,” producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement. “Having Carrie Underwood as the star brings it to a new generation who will fall in love with it for the first time as many millions of people already have. It’s a particular joy to us as producers to see this amazing artist stretch into new territory with this classic musical.”
