      The Sound of Music

      The Sound of Music is a heartwarming tale based on the real life events of the Von Trapp family singers from Austria during World War II and features the unforgettable songs from the classic songwriting team Rodgers and Hammerstein. Maria, a charismatic, adventurous postulant nun struggles with the restrictive life at the abbey. To help Maria find her way, she is sent to care for the seven Von Trapp children. While there, Maria teaches the children to sing and works her way into the hearts of the children and their father, the Captain. As the family learns to find new happiness, the war continues around them threatening their lives, and the family is forced to flee their home and everything they know. This timeless tale reminds us that you must face your problems and that as long as you have the people you love, you will always be home.
