  1. I grew up singing this music in particular – it helped me overcome stuttering (the singing and the drama). Thanks to the Sound of Music, I’m a person who no longer stutters!!!

    Theatre is my passion, and the Sound of Music was my colour of imagination as I grew up, Yes I learnt to read with the A.B.C, and sing with the DO-RE-ME-FA-SO-LA- TI DO, but there were never hillsides to run up and down, please take me to my childhood fantasy to relive the beauty of a rainbow.

  3. The Arts are a gift to be treasured, supported and encouraged. The incredible talent we have needs to always have a platform. Our dancers look, singers, actors are world class!
    I would love to see this show ❤️

    Would be a dream come true to see this show! It’s been one of my favourite films since my childhood.

  7. The most beautiful, humane, victorious words of songs that we are living with over the past decades. Touchy, arty, emotional and victorious moments for many in the world. It reminds me of my mom, she always sung these songs for us as toddlers, teenagers and then in our adulthood. We had to have them played at all our family functions. She watched the movie more than 25 times, and we were part of her movie shows.

    I must see this show with my family.
