The Sound of Music comes to the North West

Musical masterpiece, The Sound of Music, will be stopping in the North West for a run of four nights in April 2020, with Corrie’s Andrew Lancel playing Captain von Trapp and Emilie Fleming in the role of Maria.

Known as one of the must see family musicals, the Sound of Music tells the true story of the  Trapp family. It follows the vocal family from their idyllic, romantic search for happiness as a young family, to their thrilling escape to freedom as Austria becomes part of the Third Reich at the start of the Second World War.

The Sound Of Music will be at Liverpool’s Storyhouse or eight performances from Tuesday 14 April to Saturday 18 April 2020.

Emilie Fleming became a household name when she was a finalist in BBC One’s Over the Rainbow, with Andrew Lloyd Webber. Andrew Lancel is best known as Corrie bad guy Frank Foster.

The Sound of Music was first played on Broadway in 1959 after Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse were inspired by the story of the Trapp Family Singers and Baroness Maria von Trapp’s 1949 autobiography. Since that first production, the musical has become known for some of the most memorable songs ever performed on stage, including Edelweiss, My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, So Long, Farewell and title song The Sound Of Music.
