Join The Lowry this
Christmas, as one of the greatest musicals of all time returns to the stage in a magnificent new production. This year don’t just see the ‘hills come alive’ on screen, as the Rogers and Hammerstein classic bursts onto our lyric stage in a myriad of nuns, edelweiss and clothes made from curtains.
In a wonderfully lavish new staging, The Sound of Music tells the true story of the world-famous singing family, from their romantic beginnings and search for happiness, to their thrilling escape to freedom at the start of the Second World War.
The unforgettable score features some of the most memorable songs ever performed on stage, including: My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, and, of course, the title song The Sound of Music.
LUCY O’BYRNE, fresh from her success on BBC One’s The Voice, plays the title role of Maria. She became the competition’s runner up earlier this year, impressing the nation and chart topper will.i.am with her stunning vocal range. Award winning actor and TV heart-throb GRAY O’BRIEN plays the dashing Captain von Trapp. With a career that has spanned over two decades, he is best loved for his memorable roles in Peak Practice, Casualty and, of course, Coronation Street.
Make this Christmas and New Year one to remember at The Lowry.
