The World's most universally loved Rogers & Hammerstein musical is re-enacted on stage at the London Palladium. It is a resoundingly successful show that has gathered together much revered talent from the West End Theatre in  the designers (including directors in this case) cast, the dance and the sound and the beautiful lighting.  The critics all said 'what a show!" a decent quote was 'by the Daily Telegraph who wrote:

"A show that restores one's faith in human nature. I left with a spring in my step and a smile on my face. Suddenly the world seemed a brighter place"

The Story
It's a tale with a happy ending despite being fraught with difficulties from romantic attachments to running for their lives. Maria, a novice young nun is sent forth into the real world to be a governess to a military family. With no mother and a super strict and seemingly cold father, the children are turning into brats until Maria softens the scene all round. Though everybody knows the real story of the Von Trapp family by now, it is best remembered in detail at a show like this.  Even if you've seen it once, it's a great go-again party show and of course children adore it.  The great thing about the theatre is that it's different every night - has to be, it's live. Also, you are different every night you see it on.
