A distinctly New Brunswick production
This will be the sixth professional musical theatre partnership between Tutta Musica and the Capitol Theatre. The producers are aiming to reflect this community’s language duality and for the first time, incorporate some French language lyrics in sections of certain songs. “As New Brunswickers, it’s very common in our day to day lives to switch back and forth between French and English in the same conversation” commented Marshall Button. “We wanted to reflect our unique local flair in this show – to give a nod to our Francophone audiences who have supported these productions since the very beginning… a very good place to start.”
Music by RICHARD RODGERS
Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II
Book by HOWARD LINDSAY and RUSSEL CROUSE
Suggested by “The Trapp Family Singers” by Maria Augusta Trapp
The story behind this world-renowned musical features a young postulant who proves too high-spirited for the religious life, is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon, they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis who demand the Captain’s immediate service in their navy. The family’s narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.
