The world's favorite musical bursts onto The Rose stage, alive with The Sound of Music! With songs such as "Edelweiss" and "Do-Re-Mi," this final collaboration of Rodgers and Hammerstein was destined to win the hearts of audiences worldwide! When Maria is dispatched from the convent to serve as governess to the seven children of the Von Trapp family, her arrival is met with resistance. But, Maria's soaring spirit and love for music is a winning combination that helps the family unite as they face the threat of a Nazi-occupied Austria.
