Last September 6, 2017, we were invited to get a look inside the rehearsals of ‘The Sound of Music. As previously announced, 3 sets of children will be alternating to perform the roles of The Von Trapp children– Friedrich, Louisa, Kurt, Brigitta, Marta, and Gretl throughout its 3-week run at The Theatre at Solaire.
In the video below, we see Dance Captain and Assistant Children’s Director Karen Sproull playing Maria and Liesl Von Trapp (Carmen Pretorius will be playing Maria during the actual run. The actress who will be playing Liesl has yet to be announced.) while training the kids with their choreography. Up until the rehearsal date, the groups of kids who will be performing together have yet to be finalized.
