Set in Austria on the eve of the Anschluss in 1938, the musical tells the story of Maria who leaves a convent to become a governess to the children of a Naval officer widower. He runs the household as strictly as he does the ships he sails on. The children are unhappy and resentful of the governesses that their father keeps hiring and when Maria arrives, she is initially met with the same hostility. But her kindness, understanding and sense of fun soon draws them to her and brings some much-needed joy into all their lives — including the Captain’s. Eventually he and Maria find themselves falling in love…

Thursday-Sunday August 9-26

As part of the Bernstein In Chichester Festival marking the centenary of the birth of the composer Leonard Bernstein, West Side Story, On The Waterfront and On The Town will be screened during the 27th Chichester International Film Festival. Leonard Bernstein wrote the score for West Side Story (1961), which was rated by the American Film Institute as one of the best two musicals ever made. He also wrote the score for the 1954 Elia Kazan movie On The Waterfront, which dared to speak with a bold and identifiable musical voice and for which he was nominated for an Oscar. On The Town retained four songs composed by Bernstein from the original 1944 stage musical. There will also be two illustrated talks: Bernstein at the Movies and Leonard Bernstein: Broadcaster and Lecturer.
