When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.

Dante J.J. Bevilacqua, Ticket (Montgomery Newspapers):
Sound production. Fine performances highlight the well-known
As Maria, [Michelle] Zacchei has a bright personality and a guileless
Rushton is confident and likeable in the role of Captain Georg von
Smart is a nicely understated Mother Abbess.... Joe
Erdeljac [as Max Detweiler] does exceptional work.... Carrie
Bray shines as the oldest von Trapp daughter, Leisl."
