Maria, a prospective nun, leaves the convent to become a governess for the seven children of a wealthy, Austrian widower who is a retired Navy Captain and a cold disciplinarian to his children. Soon, she opens the children to the wonders of life and the joy of music – and eventually softens the heart of their father and gains his love.  They marry soon afterward; however, their lives will take a dramatic turn. 1930’s Austria is about to come under the control of Germany, and the Captain may find himself drafted into the German navy and forced to fight against his own country and principles. The Captain and Maria agonize over the decision to leave their wealthy lifestyle and beloved country to seek freedom.  They worry about the trip with the children across the high mountains.  Maria’s Mother Abbess of the convent gives a final word from the Lord before they run for their lives: “You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:12

What would happen if a 21st century Alice collided with Lewis Carroll’s legendary Wonderland? This modern retelling of the classic children’s story, presented in the round, has all of the characters you know and love, including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts. It has humor, spunk, and some lessons along the way. Fun for the whole family!
