Teatru Astra is proud to announce its 6th thrilling musical: THE SOUND OF MUSIC. Set against the terrifying rise of the Third Reich and based on the true story of the Von Trapp family's escape from Austria across the Alps, this uplifting story of a young postulant who falls in love with stern but ultimately caring ex-Navy man is brim full with classic favourites. From My Favourite Things, to I am Sixteen, to every child's favourite song Do-Re-Mi, once seen and enjoyed, THE SOUND OF MUSIC becomes everyone's eternally favourite musical.

The Astra is presenting a sumptuous production of this joyous show for March 2023 and is calling auditions this September. All parts are up for grabs.
