The Sound of Music contains arguably the best-loved songs of all time - Andrew Lloyd Webber


This lavish production, presented in South Africa by Pieter Toerien, David Ian and The Really Useful Group, tells the story of the Von Trapp family`s flight across the mountains from Austria, with its unforgettable score that includes some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical stage including "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 Sound of Music is a must-see on the 2018 theatrical calendar!


With words and music by the legendary Rogers and Hammerstein (Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I), The Sound of Music originally premiered on Broadway in 1959 to record-breaking advance ticket sales, where it won eight Tony Awards - including "Best Musical". The show opened in London in 1961 and became the longest-running American musical of its generation. Even today, The Sound of Music remains the most successful movie musical in history.

Since the turn of the 21st century, the enduring magic of The Sound of Music has lead to major productions around the world, giving testament to its title as "The World`s Most Popular Musical". This production of the legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein musical opened to rave reviews and sell-out business at the Wales Millennium Centre in July 2009, following a record-breaking 954 performances at the London Palladium where it was seen by well over 2 million people. The role of Maria was cast following a hugely popular 2006 BBC reality television show called "How do You Solve a Problem like Maria?". The 2014 South African production was a huge box office smash and garnered a flood of rave reviews from the local media:

"A MUST SEE! Magical and AMAZING!" Artslink.co.za

"A TRIUMPH! A GREAT production!" The Citizen

"ASEMROWENDE!" Beeld

"This musical is definitely one of my FAVOURITE things! An EXCELLENT production that will enchant yet another generation!" Saturday STAR

"GLORIOUS production! An international family favourite! A nostalgia trip that you`ll never want to end. Cast and orchestra are SUPERB!" Business Day


The 2018 production will star Andre Schwartz as Captain von Trapp and Carmen Pretorius as Maria.


The hills will certainly be alive once again with the Sound of Music in Cape Town and Johannesburg in 2018.
