The story follows Maria (played by Samantha Richards), a devout young woman on the cusp of taking vows to become a nun. Life, however, takes an unexpected turn and Maria finds herself governess to a family of seven children. She falls in love with the spirited, yet loveable children in her care and their widowed father, Captain von Trapp (played by Josef Bavastro).
Building a life of love is a challenge when oppressive forces threaten to tear the tender shoots of happiness from the newly formed family. Ultimately, we see music unite the family, compelling them to stay true to the values they hold dear.
Our cast is made up entirely of Sacred Heart and St Johns’ students (as well as little Gretl from Marian); who work together to weave together this uplifting story with all the songs you know and love, including “Do-Re-Mi”, “My Favourite Things”, “Edelweiss”, “Climb Every Mountain”, and of course “The Sound of Music”.
A wonderful performance for all the family!
