Considered by many to be the best-loved and most successful movie musical in history, The Sound of Music is an absolute family fave. From “My Favourite Things”, and “Edelweiss”, to “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and “Do Re Mi”, you won’t be able to stop yourself from singing along. Based on a true story, The Sound Of Music is more than entertainment – it’s a tale about the touching memory of Maria and the Von Trapp family, united through their love of music and their struggle for freedom, just prior to the Second World War. Get booking, mamas!
