The Sound of Music

Mon 14 December - Sat 2 January

This event has passed.
Sound of Music

A brand new production of the timeless family classic starring Lucy O'Byrne as Maria Von Trapp fresh from her success on BBC 1 The Voice 2015.

Award-winning actor and TV heart throb Gray O'Brien plays the dashing Captain Von Trapp. With a career that has spanned two decades he is best loved for his roles in Peak Practice, Casualty and, of course, Coronation Street

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 WWII.

The unforgettable score features some of the most memorable songs ever performed on stage, including ‘Edelweiss’, ‘My Favourite Things’, ‘Do-Re-Mi’, ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’, and of course, the title song - ‘The Sound of Music’. This new production of the classic stage musical coincides with the 50th Anniversary of the film version - the best loved and most successful movie musical in history.
