'Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start.'
Due to overwhelming public demand, 'My Favourite Things' returns after a sold out season last year. Focusing on the events surrounding the writing of the world’s most beloved musical, The Sound of Music, this biographical show details the fascinating and deeply moving story of Rodgers and Hammerstein- the song writing duo who quite literally changed Broadway forever with their ground-breaking musicals.
Featuring the breathtaking music from the Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 'Big 5', namely 'Oklahoma', 'Carousel', 'The King and I', 'South Pacific' and 'The Sound of Music', as well as a wide array of classics from the Great American Songbook (including 'New York, New York', 'The Way You Look Tonight' and many many more) this unique musical re-purposes these timeless songs, intricately woven into a retelling of the devastating and true story behind these incredible creatives, their musicals and their enormous success.
From the creator of consistently sold-out smash hit shows, this unique show takes you back to the birth of the golden age of the Broadway musical in all its splendour – and it is sure to have you humming along with the classics you know and love! So journey back to the glamorous 1950s to find out why the hills were indeed alive with the sound of music, and how exactly they solved a problem like Maria!
Starring Brett de Groot, Kiruna-Lind Devar, Daniel Geddes, Alyssa Harrison and Sandi Dlangalala, accompanied by an incredible band of musicians including David Cousins, Lindzi Wiggins, Cole Matthews and Stephen Haiden.
Some of us will probably do lunch at 13:00 at the Stages Restaurant, to receive their tickets, chat a little and soak up some of the cultural ambience (:)) before the show. Please indicate if you will join us in the Joburg Theatre restaurant, so that I can book a seat for you!

I will communicate my banking details to CONFIRMED RSVPs towards the end of July, and set a date for receipt of your payment. We will need to book around then, as the show is likely to be booked out very quickly.
