Producers Lucy Magee and John Payton said: “We are delighted to present this much loved musical for another run at the First Group Theatre, Dubai. It was so wonderfully received in April and we have been inundated with requests from the UAE audiences to bring it back. The Sound Of Music really is one the best written and most memorable musicals of all time and is perfect for all audiences. We are delighted to have such a talented cast which includes some new faces to the production from London’s West End and from here in Dubai alongside our excellent returning creative team. We look forward to bringing this entertaining, moving and memorable production to Dubai again for this strictly limited special farewell season of nine performances”
