The Primadonna youth troupe are just days away from presenting the world's best loved musical, The Sound of Music, to a rapt crowd at Pinjarra Civic Centre.
A special arrangement designed for school-aged children, this slightly abbreviated version contains almost all of the well-known songs, and the familiar storyline is unchanged.
Maria’s (Maren Gosby) journey from the Abbey, to becoming a nervous governess and eventually a beloved wife, comes complete with folk dancing, an a capella Latin chant by the nuns and a lively ensemble routine of The Lonely Goatherd, as well as touching on the the Nazi occupation of Austria.
Five of the troupe are performing in their first show. One of the newcomers, Anna Marias, has taken on the role of Sister Berthe and another, Flynn Creelman, is playing Herr Zeller.
The show will be performed at the Pinjarra Civic Centre on Friday June 30 at 7-30pm and again on Saturday July 1, with a 2pm showing and a 7.30pm show.
Tickets are $9 each and are available from Music Force, next door to the Greenfields Vet, cash sales only please.
Advances sales are moving well, so for the best of the remaining seats patrons are advised to get in early.
