The Sound of Music

Suggested by "The Trapp Singers" by Maria Augusta Trapp

Directed & Choreographed by: Rene Finkenkeller
Conducted by: Volanda Watts

Synopsis: The final collaboration between Rogers and Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. When a postulant, Maria, proves too high-spirited for religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning for their honeymoon, they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain’s immediate service in their Navy. The family’s narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in theatre.
