The Sound of Music fills The Court Theatre
Fresh from a successful and much praised run in Cheddington in April, the Cheddington Pantomime Group Musical Theatre Company brings its spectacular production of The Sound Of Music to The Court Theatre, Tring.
For more than 20 years CPG has been staging pantomimes, reviews and musicals, including Oliver! The Wizard of Oz, My Fair Lady and The King and I, but this is the company’s first production at the Court.
An experienced cast, many familiar to regulars at The Court, join with great singers and the magic of Rogers and Hammerstein’s best loved musical to create a wonderful evening for all.
In Salzburg, Austria, Maria, a woman studying to become a nun, is sent from her convent to be the governess to seven children of a widowed naval commander, Captain Georg Ritter von Trapp. The children, initially hostile and mischievous, come to like her due to their mutual love of music. Maria finds herself falling in love with the captain whilst teaching the children singing. Meanwhile, the Nazis take power in Austria as part of the Anschluss, and want Captain von Trapp back in service.
However, the captain has, in turn, fallen in love with Maria and, during a singing performance in a guarded theatre, the whole family flees over the mountains to Switzerland.
