Music 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
This beloved musical tells the tale of young postulant Maria, whose free spirit has trouble fitting into the rules and regulations of the abbey.
Commissioned by the Mother Abbess to serve as the governess for seven motherless children, Maria transforms the Von Trapp family home from a place of dour rules and regulations to one filled with joy, laughter and music. In the process, Maria wins the hearts of all seven children – and their widower father, Captain Von Trapp.
