Scott will be directing an all-new production of this ‘perfect’ family musical favourite – a piece that has been on his bucket-list ever since he fell in love with the genre of musical theatre at the age of sixteen.

When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.

Produced by the Waipawa Musical and Dramatic Club, this production of "The Sound of Music" will be on stage at the CHB Municipal Theatre From 13-22 July 2017. Auditions will be held 25-26 February 2017.

Further information about this production can be found on the Waipawa M&D website.
