The final collaboration between Rodgers and Hammerstein captures a personal tale of growth and hope. After causing disorder at the abbey, the young novice Maria is sent to be governess to Captain Von Trapp’s seven children. Maria enchants the entire family by teaching the children to sing and the captain to love again. This delightful musical will thrill audiences with its Tony®, Grammy®, and Academy Award® winning Best Score.
