Callander Amateur Operatic Society
Our Next Production ......... The Sound of Music
Following a two-year wait caused by the pandemic, we are finally able to present The Sound of Music (SoM) - the final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein which was destined to become the world's most beloved musical.
As indicated on our Home Page, the show will now run at McLaren High School, from Wednesday 16th March to Saturday 19th March 2022. Ticket details are provided below.
We are extremely grateful to Andrew Baird Optometrist for sponsoring this show
It is 1938 and Austria is in danger of being absorbed into Germany - the Anschluss. 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. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.
Great story, made even better by some great songs - 'Doh A Dear', 'Eidelweiss', 'Sixteen Going On Seventeen', 'Climb Every Mountain' and of course, 'The Sound of Music' and many more.
The show will run from Wednesday 16th to Saturday 19th March 2022, at McLaren High School, with Wednesday to Friday performances starting at 7.30 pm and Saturday at 2.30 pm.
