The Show

“The Sound of Music,” a beloved musical, is based on the true story of the Von Trapp Family Singers. Set in Austria during the eve of the Anschluss in 1938, it follows young postulant Maria Rainer. Maria, with her free spirit, struggles to conform to the rules of Nonnberg Abbey. Commissioned as the governess for seven motherless children, she transforms their home into a place of joy, laughter, and music. Amidst the horrors of World War II, Maria’s journey leads her to love, family, and hope.



A great opportunity for 2 talented boys and 1 male actor to take part in The Sound of Music.

The performance dates are 2nd-4th and 7th-10th August and the majority of rehearsals will take place on a Sunday.
