    The hills are alive with the sound of music!

    Set in the Austrian alps amid growing tension in Europe, Maria, a young nun, is commissioned to serve as governess to the children of the autocratic Captain von Trapp. During her tenure, she brings music and joy to the household, gaining the respect of the children and winning the heart of the stern Captain.

    But as the sinister shadow of Nazism grows larger and threatens Austrian sovereignty, Maria and the von Trapps must make a decision that could completely upset their tranquil and happy existence.

    Brimming with song favourites such as “Climb Every Mountain” and “My Favourite Things”, this inspirational story about family under pressure will capture your hearts and lift your spirits.
