WHO would have thought a story of a free-spir­ited pos­tu­lant nun and a wid­ower fall­ing in love would make a great mu­si­cal? Add seven chil­dren, a moun­tain range and the Nazi in­va­sion of Aus­tria for one of the most pop­u­lar mu­si­cals (and movies) of all time, The Sound of Mu­sic.

Coffs Har­bour Mu­si­cal Com­edy Com­pany has cho­sen Rodgers & Ham­mer­stein’s, The Sound of Mu­sic as their next pro­duc­tion. This the same com­pany who re­cently brought us Pi­rates of Pen­zance, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Pop­pins so the show is in ex­pe­ri­enced hands.

Fiona Stiles takes on the lead role of Maria, a pos­tu­lant nun who proves too high-spir­ited for the re­li­gious life and is dis­patched to serve as gov­erness for the seven chil­dren of a wid­owed naval cap­tain. Fiona blew au­di­ences away re­cently with her por­trayal of Mary Pop­pins and has the act­ing and singing chops to do this dif­fi­cult role jus­tice.

By her side will be an­other well-known name of lo­cal theatre, Beck­ley Vin­cent, who will play the male lead of Cap­tain Von Trapp. Beck­ley’s face will be fa­mil­iar to reg­u­lar the­atre­go­ers as he’s starred in many CHMCC pro­duc­tions.

Th­ese two will are sup­ported by a great en­sem­ble with the roles of the Von Trapp chil­dren be­ing dou­ble-cast.

Sound of Mu­sic, Jetty Me­mo­rial Theatre Novem­ber 3 to 26.

Book­ings jet­tythe­atre.com 6648 4930. For dou­ble cast ap­pear­ance dates see CHMCC web­site.
