Production company on the look out for young performers to appear in The Sound of Music show

A South Shields production company is on the search for talented young performers to appear in a show at The Customs House, next year.

The Musical Theatre Company will be bringing their production of The Sound of Music to South Shields for a limited time in August and September 2022 and are searching for young performers to appear as the von Trapp family.

The production company is looking to hire two teams of children for the part and the youngsters will be required to sing, dance and be an integral part of the story.

Producer for The Musical Theatre Company. Kevin Reay said, “The Sound of Music remains one of the most popular musicals of all time. With a timeless score including Do-Re-Mi, My Favorite Things and Climb Ev’ry Mountain, this global phenomenon continues to enchant audiences across the world and we are thrilled to be bringing it to The Customs House. It is a fantastic venue and I am confident that audiences are going to be delighted.
