The hills are alive with Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most beloved musical. When Maria Rainer, a young postulant, proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain.
When Maria brings music, laughter, and joy back into the VonTrapp family household, she also captures the heart of the stern Captain. Set during the Nazi occupation of Austria before World War II, The Von Trapps face seemingly insurmountable odds as they race to flee their beloved homeland. Based on a true story, this epic classic is both thrilling and inspirational to audiences the world over.
The final production of the season is certain to be a triumph of music, singing and love.
