Nexus BYT brings one of the world’s most loved musicals to Bendigo in this classic story of a young and spirited nun who transforms the lives of a family of seven children bereft of a mother. Kind, honest and generous, she wins the heart of the children’s autocratic father by teaching the children to sing. Set in Austria in the early days of the Second World War, the family are forced to escape the Nazis by climbing the Alps on foot. Based on the true story of the von Trapp Family Singers, this show is filled with familiar, heart-warming songs like ‘Edelweiss’, ‘My Favourite Things’ and ‘Climb Every Mountain’.

 Treat your entire family to one of the most hopeful and enduring stories ever brought to the stage in this classic show, performed in Bendigo’s beautiful Capital Theatre.
