The Sound of Music
Queanbeyan Players Inc
In a convent in 1930’s Austria, free spirited postulant Maria Rainer is found ill-suited to life as a nun, and is sent to serve as governess to the seven children of Captain Von Trapp, a widower and decorated Naval Officer.
Upon her arrival, Maria discovers the seven children living grim lives in a strict and regimented household, run by a father who has forgotten how to love. Soon however, Maria’s zest for life, love and music infects not only the Von Trapp children, but Captain Von Trapp himself.
Set against the historical backdrop of the Nazis’ rise to power and ultimate occupation of Austria, The Sound Of Music is a time honoured story of love and patriotism, including such classic and well-loved songs as “My Favourite Things”, “Sixteen Going On Seventeen”, “Climb Every Mountain” and “So Long, Farewell”.
Running Time: 2 hours 30 minutes inclusive of 20 minute interval
