MARINA DATE: Lowestoft Players are ready to perform The Sound of Music.


Final rehearsals are under way for The Lowestoft Players’ forthcoming production of The Sound of Music, and audiences are promised a real treat.

The Rodgers and Hammerstein classic musical is on at The Marina Theatre from Tuesday until Saturday, June 2 nightly at 7.30pm and for a matinee performance on the Saturday at 2.30pm.

Director Stephen Wilson said:

“We have been rehearsing for the show since February and if our recent full run through rehearsals are anything to go by, the audience will leave the theatre having laughed, cried and sung their way through this fantastic musical.”

The musical is set in 1930s Austria, and follows Maria Rainer, who is given the job as a governess to look after the seven mischievous children of Captain Georg Von Trapp, a Navy captain.

It includes famous songs such as Do Re Mi, My Favourite Things, Climb Every Mountain, So Long Farewell and The Sound of Music, with its main appeal being the seven enchanting children of the Von Trapp Family.

Co-director Wendy Takman said: “The children we have playing the Von Trapps have worked very hard, but they are so talented – full of character and fun and so are sure to win the hearts of the audience!”

“The Sound of Music is such a famous musical and holds a special place in many people’s hearts – our production brings to life all the famous songs and scenes, with beautiful costumes, stunning scenery and sets and, of course, a very talented cast’.

Tickets are still available but are selling fast, so audiences are urged to book sooner rather than later.
