The Playhouse Company has announced that booking is open for the Company’s festive season production of the world’s best-loved family music, The Sound of Music. Booking is at Computicket.

Directed by Ralph Lawson, and featuring some of South Africa’s best-loved stars, The Sound of Music was inspired by the lives of the von Trapp family, and tells the uplifting, feel-good story of Maria, a fun-loving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Captain von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music, culminating in the family’s escape from the Nazis across the mountains from Austria.

Audiences can look forward to all the songs from the musical that everyone loves so much, such as Edelweiss, My Favourite Things, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, Do-Re-Mi, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, Lonely Goatherd and the title song, The Sound of Music.

This treasured classic will be staged in the Playhouse Opera and will feature the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra and the Playhouse Dance Residency.
