The Sound of Music

04 Mar 2014

Past Pupils of Stirling High School, Kerry Hiles (Deputy Head Girl 1994) and Germaine Gamiet (Head Boy 2000) will be guest starring in the show this year. 

A free-spirited young Austrian woman, Maria (Kerry Hiles), is studying to become a nun. Due to her often singing and running seeming somewhat out of place in the abbey, Mother Abbess (Marina Pienaar), sends her to the nearby city of Salzburg to be governess to the seven children of Captain Georg von Trapp (Germaine Gamiet). She later marries Captain von Trapp, after realizing her feelings towards him. The Sound of Music contains several popular songs, including "Edelweiss", "My Favorite Things", "Climb Ev'ry Mountain", "Do-Re-Mi", "Sixteen Going on Seventeen", "The Lonely Goatherd", and the title song, "The Sound of Music". 

The show runs 11 - 15 March 2014.  Tickets for The Sound of Music are available at Computicket. R50 for pensioners and scholars, R70 for adults.
