The 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.
