This event has passed.

While she decides whether to become a nun, free-spirited Maria takes a job as governess to the seven children of widower and Austro-Hungarian Navy submarine captain Georg von Trapp. She quickly falls for the children and eventually Georg. Nazi Germany ultimately annexes Austria, pressuring Georg to accept a commission in the German Navy. Maria and Georg are forced to make life-changing decisions and a daring escape to protect their values and love. Relive this heartwarming story of love, family, music, and triumph in a new large-scale production of a Broadway classic.
