The Sound of Music

the sound of musicThe Artscape Theatre hosts the return of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s popular musical, The Sound of Music.

The production is presented in South Africa by Pieter Toerien, David Ian and The Really Useful Group, and tells the story of the von Trapp family’s flight across the mountains from Austria, with its unforgettable score that includes My Favourite Things, Edelweiss, Do-Re-Mi, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, The Lonely Goatherd, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, and the title song The Sound of Music.

Featuring an all-star South African cast back from their international tour, the 2018 production stars Andre Schwartz as Captain von Trapp and Carmen Pretorius as Maria.

“The audience stood to cheer during the final notes of the nuns’ reprise of ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’ as the von Trapp family paused atop a slab of rock and the lights projected a fantastic sunset behind them.” Read Katy Scott’s review of The Sound of Music.

    The Sound of Music – one of my ABSOLUTE PERSONALLY GLORIFIED MOVIES. Wouldn’t even be able to imagine the immense excitement I would be expressing if I had the opportunity to win these tickets for myself and my dear darling chikidee of a friend.

  6. I have the DVD and I watched the show over and over again … know all the songs by heart. Would love to take my sis to watch it with me.

  7. THis would be the best treat I could give my Mom, even if it means me flying her from PE to see the show

  8. Eden Bezuidenhout

    Would be such a dream come true to see one of my favourite musicals live! This opportunity cannot be missed! 😁🎉

  9. Robyn du Plessis

    YES! I danced in artscape with Cape Town City Ballet Company for atleast 12 years of my life and know a lot of the cast. It would be so great to go and support. If I can’t be on stage, the audience is the next best place to be! 🎭🎟

  10. I would definitly take my little niece with me (she’s 2!) She would the experience and I would love to expose her more to musical thearte.

  11. Quanita Rossouw

    This is DEFINTITELY one play I’d love to take my 9 year old daughter to watch!!! Every month, the 2 of us would snuggle up and watch the movie (our own movie night) – the play would just take it to the next level!!!

  12. I am ‘sixteen going on seventeen’ but ‘one of my favourite things’ is ‘climbing every mountain’ in the hope that ‘something good’ will come of it, perhaps hearing the sweet ‘Sound Of Music’ or my meeting my ‘Maria’. Then for me it will be ‘So long, farewell’.

  13. I remember watching this for the first time…drove everyone crazy singing the lyrics i could remember
