“The Sound of Music” is the final collaboration between Broadway legends Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, and was based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp. The beloved musical has earned five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The story follows Maria, who is played in the B-P production by Kate Szumowski ’22, who serves as governess to the seven children of Captain von Trapp as Nazi forces take hold of Austria.
