This is the first show that the artistic director, Ms. Maria Moore and WHS’ new choral director, Ms. Nicole Turski have worked together along with Ms. Jill Brooks, WHS’ band director.
The music is performed live by the members of the WHS band and sung by the actors involved in the show.
The musical takes place in Austria before the start of World War II. The show is about a young woman named Maria who falls in love with a navy captain and must flee Austria before the Nazi regime invades and forces Captain Von Trapp to join the army.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see a great performance with more than 80 students involved in the cast, crew and pit.
