Who can resist The Sound Of Music this summer? The hills will come alive once again as the much loved musical returns to Eastbourne in a brand new production at the Congress Theatre from Monday July 13 – Saturday July 18.
This special stage adaptation, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the film’s release, has already garnered glowing reviews and is currently touring the UK.
Playing the iconic role of Maria von Trapp is Danielle Hope, who captured the hearts of the country when she won BBC Television’s Over The Rainbow and made her professional debut as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium.
Joining the company as Captain von Trapp is popular stage and television star Steven Houghton.
He is well-known to discerning audiences for his longstanding television roles in Coronation Street and London’s Burning, and Olivier-Award nominated Steven has taken on leading roles in Spend Spend Spend, Blood Brothers, White Christmas, Martin Guerre and Grease.
The unforgettable score from the world’s most successful musical features the legendary melodies and lyrics of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, such as Edelweiss, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, So Long, Farewell, and of course, title song, The Sound of Music.
Based on the true story of the Trapp Family Singers and Baroness Maria von Trapp’s 1949 autobiography, The Sound of Music recounts Maria and the Captain’s romance and their escape to freedom as Austria becomes part of the Third Reich at the beginning of WWII.
