The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an cheerful nun-in-training who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire von Trapp family must make a moral decision.

A note from the directors: Based on the true story of a family that flees the annexation of Austria by the Nazis, our production of this musical has some movements and lines that portray these historical villains. Everyone should feel uncomfortable when they see or hear these representations of murderous hate and bigotry. Consider leaning into that feeling as a reminder that humans are capable of terrible atrocities. Let it prompt discussions in your households about the history of the Holocaust, anti-Semitism and facism.  Let it urge you to greater compassion, empathy, and action in your daily lives.


If you would like more context around the history of the Holocaust and the unspeakable crimes against humanity that the Nazi party committed please contact:

Lastly, please be conscious of how photographs of our young performers in Nazi costumes out of context are harmful. Sharing such pictures can have long-term negative impacts for the students pictured, Pope High School, the person who posts them, and the person who sees them.  The damaging ripples could be long lasting.  We ask that you refrain from taking these photos or posting them on social media.  

Thank you for your support.
