One of the world’s best-loved musicals THE SOUND OF MUSIC Singapore serenades Mastercard Theatres, MBS Singapore from 9 November 2017! This highly-acclaimed production comes from the home of West End musical theatre – the famous London Palladium where the lavish and dazzling show celebrated a record-breaking 954 performances and was seen by over two million people. In Singapore, the show played to almost 70,000 people during its five-week season in July / August 2014. Due to popular demand, it was brought back to the Little Red Dot for another season and will run until 3 December 2017.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC Singapore tells the uplifting true story of Maria, a apostulant from Nonnberg Abbey who ventured out of the abbey to become the fun-loving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Austro-Hungarian Navy submarine Captain von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music, culminating in the family’s escape across the Austrian mountains as tensions rise prior to the outbreak of World War II.
When Maria arrives at the villa of Captain von Trapp. He explains her duties and summons the children with a boatswain’s call. They march in, clad in uniforms. He teaches her their individual signals on the call, but she openly disapproves of this militaristic approach.
Alone with them, she breaks through their wariness and teaches them the basics of music (“Do-Re-Mi”). With its unforgettable score, THE SOUND OF MUSIC touches the hearts of all ages and contains some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical theatre stage including My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, Edelweiss, The Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, and of course the glorious title song The Sound of Music.
Additionally, eighteen of Singapore’s most able young actors and actresses will play the coveted roles of six of the seven von Trapp children, with three children chosen to alternate each character. The children come from all corners of Singapore and will perform in rotation throughout the season as the small and cute Gretl, the brothers Friedrich and Kurt, as well as their sisters Marta, Brigitta, and Louisa. The casting of the von Trapp children for The Sound Of Music Singapore season are as follows:
GRETL: Tanya Chan, Emily Kitamura, Emily Riddle
