The principal cast includes Joanne Plenty as The Mother Abbess; Teresa Bray as Sister Berthe; Lou Knight as Sister Margaretta; Vic May as Sister Sophia; Nevil Poole as Captain Georg Von Trapp; David Hynds as Franz, the butler and Lisa Kendall as Frau Schmidt, the housekeeper.

Two teams of young performers will play the seven von Trapp children. One team will perform on Tuesday, Thursday and the Saturday matinee, with the second team performing on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evening.

The show will start each evening at 7.30pm, with a matinee showing on Saturday 18th of May at 2.30pm. Tickets prices are £15 or £13 for concessions in stalls.
