If you want a real treat in February, come to Edinburgh and see Connie Fisher as Maria in the world’s best-loved musical, THE SOUND OF MUSIC.  Performances are being held at the Edinburgh Playhouse from 19th January until 20th of February.

This rather lavish and highly acclaimed production, direct from the London Palladium, tells the story of the Von Trapp family’s flight across the mountains and works its magic once again, for young and old alike.

With its unforgettable score that includes some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical stage including My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, , and of course the glorious title song The Sound of Music, it’s the perfect family treat.
