The Sound of MusicMusic by RICHARD RODGERS, Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II
Book by HOWARD LINDSAY and RUSSEL CROUSE
Suggested by “The Trapp Family Singers” by Maria Augusta Trapp
When postulant Maria Rainer proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is sent to serve as governess for the seven children of widowed naval Captain, Georg Von Trapp. Her generosity of spirit, love of music and growing rapport with the children gradually capture the heart of the stern Captain. They fall in love and marry. Returning from their honeymoon, they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. Refusing to capitulate, the Captain and his family must somehow escape to Switzerland.
The show contains all the well-known songs from both stage and film, including ‘Edelweiss’, ‘My Favourite Things’, ‘Do-Re-Mi’ and ‘The Sound of Music’.
