From December 2 to December 12, 2015
One of the greatest musicals of all time returns to the stage in a magnificent new production to enchant and enthral the young and the young at heart.
Based on Baroness Maria von Trapp’s 1949 autobiography, this wonderfully lavish new staging of The Sound of Music tells the true story of the world-famous singing family, from their romantic beginnings and search for happiness, to their thrilling escape to freedom as their beloved Austria becomes part of the Third Reich at the start of WWll.
LUCY O’BYRNE, fresh from her success on BBC One’s The Voice, plays the title role of Maria. She became the competition’s runner up earlier this year, impressing the nation and chart topper will.i.am with her stunning vocal range. Award winning actor and TV heart-throb GRAY O’BRIEN plays the dashing Captain von Trapp. With a career that has spanned over two decades, he is best loved for his memorable roles in Peak Practice, Casualty and, of course, Coronation Street.
The Sound of Music features some of the world’s most memorable songs, including ‘Edelweiss’, ‘My Favorite Things’, ‘Do-Re-Mi’, ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’, ‘So Long, Farewell’ and of course, the title song, ‘The Sound of Music’.
