The abbey life is not the life for Maria: an exuberant, free-spirited, would-be nun with the habit of fleeing her studies to sing in the Austrian mountainside.

For a change of scenery, Maria is off to join the von Trapp family household as the latest in a long string of governesses for humourless naval captain Georg von Trapp and his seven disciplined but mischievous children. While the family is initially no match for Maria’s unstoppable love of music and whimsy, it isn’t long until the power of song brings much welcome harmony, romance, and the promise of a bright future, into their home.

But, against political unrest, the von Trapps’ newfound joy becomes threatened. Will the hills that offered Maria her musical solace also become the family’s road to refuge?

Grand Theatre Artistic Director Rachel Peake helms this 2024 holiday production, based on the Tony Award-winning musical, Academy Award-winning film, and featuring memorable classic songs: “My Favourite Things”, “Do-Re-Mi”, “Sixteen Going on Seventeen”, “So Long, Farewell”, and “Something Good.”

Relaxed Performances are specifically designed to welcome patrons who will benefit from a less restricted audience environment.
