The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music

Running for a limited season only at The Customs House, The Sound of Music remains one of the most popular musicals of all time. Set against the idyllic landscape of the Austrian Alps, this heart-warming tale based on a true story follows spirited young nun Maria and her relationship with the Von Trapp family.

With a timeless score including Do-Re-Mi, My Favorite Things and Climb Ev’ry Mountain, this global phenomenon continues to enchant audiences across the world. International performer Caroline Sabiston (Guildford School of Acting and An Evening with Sir Tim Rice) will play Maria Rainer, alongside Andrew James as Captain Georg von Trapp and North East based soprano Sarah Fenwick (Sage Gateshead and Proms In The Park) as The Mother Abbess of Nonnberg Abbey.
