This dramatic tale of Stowe's most famous family, the von Trapps, will be told for the first time this century by the STG. The story is about Maria, a nun who leaves the convent to become governess for the children of the widower, Captain von Trapp, in Austria in the late 1930's. Together, they overcome the challenges posed by life, love and the Nazis. Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse.
