One of the greatest musicals of all time returns to the stage in this magnificent five star production to enchant the young and the young at heart. This wonderfully lavish staging tells the true story of the world famous singing family, from their romantic beginnings and search for happiness, to their thrilling escape to freedom at the start of WWll.
Lucy O’Byrne returns to the iconic role of Maria in which she was hailed by critics as ‘Quite possibly the best Maria since Julie Andrews herself’ (The Scotsman). Lucy was the runner up of BBC One’s The Voice in 2015, impressing the nation and chart-topper Will.I.Am with her stunning vocal range, and was recently seen in the West End as Fantine in Les Misérables.
Joining as the dashing Captain Von Trapp is TV and stage favourite Neil McDermott, whose characters include playing heartthrob Ryan Malloy in EastEnders, as well as featuring in numerous West End productions such as Shrek The Musical where he played Lord Farquaad.
The unforgettable score features some of the most memorable songs ever performed on stage, including Edelweiss, My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, So Long Farewell, and of course, The Sound of Music.
