WestSide Performing Arts Centre will be filled with the sound of music this week as Shepparton Theatre Arts Group prepares for its latest production.
STAG first performed The Sound of Music in 1979 and could not resist bringing it back to the stage.
The Sound of Music producer David Abbey said it was a well-known musical many people loved.
‘‘It’s shaping up really well,’’ he said.
‘‘Ticket sales are going really well and there’s a bit of a buzz about the cast.’’
The Sound of Music will include an 18-piece orchestra plus two casts of children who will alternate performances when the show opens at the end of this week.
Mr Abbey said STAG members had worked hard to make this production wonderful and were confident it would deliver.
Director Sean O’Brien said there was a fantastic team behind the production and he had enjoyed being involved.
‘‘I’m really happy and excited at the moment,’’ he said.
‘‘I’ve been in The Sound of Music as a cast member twice before and I just love the music and it’s such an iconic musical.’’
