Sound of Music Musical Review

While Sound of Music remained a childhood favourite for many, do you know that it was originally made as a Broadway musical and not a film? It is a bold move to retage the iconic Julie Andrews film back into a musical, staging it right here in Singapore.

The story is about Maria, who was a mischievous nun being sent take care of the Von Trapp children. During her time there, her love for singing made the children adore her so much that she fell in love with the family as well, and later married their widowed father while the Nazis took over Austria.

The children in the musical were local-based whom won their roles through an audition that opened up several months ago, they star alongside with the mainly South African cast. It was an absolute joy to watch the children singing so well to the upbeat and cheerful songs. Nostalgia filled the theatre as many hummed alongside with familiar classic songs such as My Favourite Things, Sixteen going on Seventeen and Do Re Mi. The backdrop slowly changes colour from blue to orange as the conversation goes on.

Bethany Dickson plays the role of Maria, her flawless voice riveted well right from the start to the very end. Her enthusiasm could not posssibly by imitated by just anyone! As Mother Abbess sung the nuns to prayers, it was so beautifully staged that it's worth every bucks for the show. I love how Bethany was able to play the character well, enunciating every word with such clarity. Andre Schwartz plays the captain and his voice caught me by surprise! It was very charismatic, a refreshing change from the deep opera male voices that I used to hear from other musicals.

The show runs from now till 10 August with the following showtime:
