The Sound Of Music – The World’s most loved musical coming to South Africa in 2014

Posted October 17, 2013 by myjoburg in Joburg-West
The Sound Of Music - Teatro Montecasino

Pieter Toerien, David Ian and The Really Useful Group present Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production of The Sound of Music

Johannesburg – The TEATRO at Montecasino from 5 April 2014 to 8 June 2014

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, The Sound of Music is a must-see on the 2014 theatrical calendar!

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

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. The 1965 Hollywood film, which starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, won five Oscars, including “Best Picture”, and quickly became the highest-grossing film in history. 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 South African production will star Andre Schwartz as Captain von Trapp and Bethany Dickson as Maria (see pictures by Des Ingham-Brown attached).
