The Sound of Music to be one of Cardiff's Favourite Things
Date Posted: 24/06/11
Jason Donovan and Connie Fisher will be the star attractions when The Sound of Music tour rolls into Cardiff later this year.
The production is currently coming to the end of its run in Leeds, where ex-Emmerdale actress Verity Rushworth has played the role of Maria.
She will be replaced by How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? winner Fisher when those booking Cardiff hotels arrive at the Millennium Centre to see the production between Tuesday August 23rd and Saturday September 3rd.
Former Neighbours star Donovan will take up the role of Captain von Trapp, who is the head of his family of singers whose talent is brought out by a caring and fun-loving governess.
Romance blossoms between the pair, before the family are forced to flee Austria as Captain von Trapp is sought after to assume a position in the German Navy.
After Cardiff, the production moves on to Manchester and Newcastle, following earlier shows in Nottingham and Norwich.
