2019- The Sound of Music
A heartwarming story, based on the true story of the Von Trapp Family singers, one of the world's best-known concert groups in the era immediately preceding World War II.
Maria, a tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey becomes a governess in the home of a widowed naval captain with seven children, and brings a new love of life and music into the home.

'One word, three syllables - fab-u-lous !!! Saw it last night ! The hard work that goes into producing a show like this must be phenomenal - take a bow everyone involved!'
'Wow! Such talent. Children were incredible and the voices outstanding. Well done everyone'
'Absolutely brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done to everyone involved'
'We thought it was fantastic the best one we have seen. Congratulations everyone'
Well, it's that time of year again when tears of pride swell in my eyes after seeing the Company's Musical production. I have to admit that The Sound of Music was not a favourite of mine but after seeing you all perform this year I think I'll have to alter that.
You were all fantastic, performing and showing excellent understanding of the characters involved.
The children and Maria (Zoe) were outstanding and all other participants reached this level as well. The orchestral accompaniment was of a high standard and the stage, lighting and sound crews did really well under difficult circumstances. Costumes shone through, it's remarkable what you can do with a pair of curtains, and greatly helped to establish the era of the production. A thank-you to the production team and Director David is also deserved for achieving such a result.
Once again, I am proud to be associated with you all and still delighted that you still consider me to be worthy of a position of Vice-President.
Now I'd better wipe the tears away and thank you all very much for such an enjoyable evening and wonderful show.
'The show was absolutely amazing! Loved every minute of it... Well done to the cast (especially the Von Trapp children) . Also the orchestra and the costumes were outstanding! Would strongly recommend anyone to see it...'
'Fab show...once again David it was worth it !!! Just want to say Zoe...amazing...Gareth...Edelweiss gets me every time you sing it....Martha ...fantastic....Julie Gower....you are just simply the best inside and out....but my star of the show goes to Lewis Kurt Walker...you were amazing especially as you were so nervous. Well done to the guys backstage and the fab musicians...you are all fantastic'
What a joy it was to attend the performance of The Sound Of Music at The John of Gaunt school last night....well done to all involved, a difficult piece to pull of, it was brilliant! A great credit to our small town, especially the youngsters.
