MPA's second summer production is Rodgers & Hammerstein’s universally-loved musical, based on the true-life story of Maria, a lively young Catholic postulant in Austria in the late 1930s who is sent to be governess to the seven children of Captain Von Trapp, a stern, widowed ex-military officer. Falling in love first with the children, then with the captain, Maria makes the difficult decision to leave the abbey to marry him; and, in a dramatic finale, the whole family climbs over the Alps to escape the Nazis just before World War II. Share the enchantment of this thoroughly uplifting musical with your entire family at the magnificent Gallo Center for the Arts.
Musical Highlights: “The Sound of Music”, “My Favorite Things”, and “Edelweiss”.
