The world’s best-loved musical, The Sound Of Music, comes to Noosa Arts Theatre this November with a dazzling production from director Ian Mackeller.
Ian has been actively involved within the entertainment industry (television and theatre) his entire career, as an actor/vocalist, composer/lyricist, director and producer.
Ian was festival director for NOOSA alive! for 10 years and has enjoyed a long association with Noosa Arts Theatre, performing and directing in numerous productions for more than a decade. He appeared as Fagin in the 2018 production of Oliver and directed the hugely successful production of Funny Girl last year.
This lavish and joyous production tells the uplifting true story of Maria, the funloving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Captain Von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music, culminating in the family’s escape across the mountains.
The original 1959 Broadway production of The Sound Of Music won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was Rodgers and Hammerstein’s biggest success. The 1965 movie starring Julie Andrews as Maria won five Oscars, including Best Picture, and remains one of the most popular movies of all time.
The Sound Of Music brims over with some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical theatre stage, including My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, Edelweiss, The Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, and of course the glorious title song The Sound of Music.
This iconic show touches the hearts of all ages – Don’t miss it!
