Following the success of last year’s epic production Les Miserables, the college is currently rehearsing this year’s chosen musical, The Sound of Music, a school production by arrangement with Rodgers & Hammerstein Theatricals Europe.

Featuring such memorable songs as How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?, 16 going on 17, Edelweiss, My Favourite Things and Climb Every Mountain, The Sound of Music remains one of the most beloved musicals of our time.

When a postulant Maria Reiner, played by Kayley Docherty, proves too high-spirted for religious life, she is dispatched to serve as a governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain, played by Rhys Phillips.

The Captain, once a loving father has become a strict and detached disciplinarian and Maria bursts into their lives, reintroducing the children to laughter, music and songs.

Through her growing rapport with the children and generous spirit, she captures the Captain’s heart but will their harmonious lives be torn apart when their beautiful homeland is invaded by the Nazi regime?

Performances at the college run from Thursday, July 13 to Saturday, July 15, starting at 7pm with a matinee performance on the Saturday at 2.30pm

Ticket prices are £7 for adults and £5 for concessions. Tickets can be purchased from the college reception.
