Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse

The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she 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. A story of love and devotion, the score includes “My Favorite Things,” “Sixteen Going On Seventeen” and “Edelweiss.”
