Following on from their highly successful musical of 2022, “The Addams Family”, Glasgow South based Eros Musical Society are proud to be performing the iconic “The Sound of Music” at East Kilbride Village Theatre from 7 to 11 March 2023.
Lesley Wilson, President of Eros said; “We are delighted to be working on this very special musical, especially as 2022 was also the 80th Anniversary year of the first collaboration of its creators, Rodgers and Hammerstein. That partnership is one of the most revered in musical theatre. The Sound of Music, their final show, was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical.
“Most people will be familiar with the film version but rest assured that the stage show encapsulates the same powerful and moving story of victory over oppression told through memorable music.
When we first advertised for cast, the response from both adults and children was overwhelming, with over seventy children applying for just twelve roles – a daunting task for our auditioning committee. Double casting the Von Trapp children has made for a very busy and fun-filled rehearsal schedule and with the superb quality of performers onstage, I’m certain our audiences are in for a wonderful treat! “
The production features a treasure trove of cherished songs, including Climb ev’ry Mountain, My Favourite Things, Do Re Mi, Sixteen Going on Seventeen and the title number, The Sound of Music. The film earned five Tony Awards and Five Oscars.
The inspirational story, based on the memoirs of the real-life Maria, follows an exuberant postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of imperious Captain von Trapp – and follows her story as she brings music and joy back to their household.
The show runs from Tuesday 7th – Saturday 11th March 2022 at 7.30pm / 2.30pm Saturday matinee
Ticket prices are from £16.00 (for children at the Saturday Matinee). Friday and Saturday £20, Tuesday to Thursday, £18. Group Booking Rates available Tuesday to Thursday, buy 10, pay for only 9
