Our hearts have been truly blessed by The Sound Of Music…

Our hearts have been truly blessed by The Sound Of Music…

It seems so very appropriate that our final photo and thoughts of The Sound Of Music begin with a picture of the ghost light left on for the night as we depart the theatre….

What started as an idea early into the Covid-19 pandemic has brought joy and theatre into the lives of everyone the production has touched. We knew it was ambitious.

We are sad…. However, we are excited because this is just the start. We did it at a time when people needed it. The pleasure of seeing the joy our show brought everyone else. The happiness of the cast, the crew and backstage and finally the audience who came to watch. Seeing the buzz of a theatre alive every night in anticipation of the curtain raising and the tears of joy this production brought to so many people at a time the world is on its knees.

We want to say a huge well done to all of the adults and children who performed on the stage. You brought the wonderful story of the Von Trapp family to life every single show. A true story and a wonderful musical that will life on in our hearts for ever.

Caroline, Andrew, Sarah, Stu and Jan…. You were born to perform those roles. You brought such depth and humility to this incredible true story. Ensemble….Every single one of you shone on that stage. We simply couldn’t have dreamt of a better cast. What a true team effort.

Children, we know you will be upset and down today and nothing can prepare you for finishing a show, but keep your head held high and remember this show with fond memories. This is just the start…
A huge shout out to all of the crew who worked on the show and made the magic of the theatre happen every single night in front of our audiences. We knew it wouldn’t be easy squeezing one of the worlds biggest shows into The Customs House.

A big thank you to the Customs House and staff for being supportive of our sheer ambition and determination and for making us lots and lots of coffee.

And finally to you our audiences…. Thank you for coming, for laughing, for crying and for standing up at the end of every show. We really couldn’t have done it without you.

We are signing off The Sound Of Music now…. But we will be back very very soon! So watch this space…. In the words of Maria, “When the lord closes a door, somewhere he opens a window”.
