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 the Second World War.

Playing the iconic role of Maria is Lucy O’Byrne. Fresh from her success on BBC One’s The Voice last year, she was mentored by chart-topper and, with her stunning vocal range, became the competition’s runner up.

Andrew Lancel will play Captain Von Trapp. Andrew is best known as super-villain Frank Foster in Coronation Street and DI Neil Manson in the long-running ITV television series The Bill. His numerous stage credits include Bill Kenwright’s touring productions of The Small Hand and Twelve Angry Men, and most recently in The Damned United at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.

The Sound of Music features some of the world’s most memorable songs, including Edelweiss, My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, So Long, Farewell and of course, the title song, The Sound of Music.
