The Place will definitely be alive with ‘The Sound of Music’ from Wednesday 23 until Saturday 26 October when, 60 years on from first hitting the Broadway stage, Tadlop bring this Rodgers and Hammerstein classic back to Telford.
Based on the real-life story of the Von Trapp Family Singers, it is set in Austria on the eve of the Anschluss in 1938 and follows Maria, a young novice nun, who takes a job as governess to the large Von Trapp family. She falls in love, first with the children and eventually their widowed father. Under mounting pressure from the growing Nazi regime, the new family have some difficult decisions ahead of them. Packed full of well-known songs such as ‘Edelweiss’, ‘My Favourite Things’, ‘Climb Ev'ry Mountain’ and of course the title song, this is an all-time classic. Show times are at 2.30pm and 7.30pm with tickets priced at £15.
