There will be an evening performance each night at 7:30 p.m. and an additional matinee at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $5 for students. Grade school students are welcome free of charge at the matinee. They can be purchased at the school starting March 18 and at the door. 

The cast and crew have been rehearsing for weeks in order to bring this classic musical to life. The show is based on the real life Von Trapp Family Singers just before the start of World War II. Maria, an energetic postulant, arrives at the family home to be the governess to seven children with a very strict father. Her arrival shakes up the home and brings love and music to the group. 

Seniors Anna Simmons and Jimmy Lynch will lead the talented cast as Maria and the Captain.
