Jan. 3, 2011 - PRLog -- From Popular Productions – the regions number one theatrical producers who brought Dubai the record breaking, sell out successes ‘Blood Brothers’, ’Annie’, Fame’ and ‘Disney High School Musical’, comes the announcement of auditions for the most exciting theatrical event to be staged in the Middle East in 2011 as Dubai ‘comes alive to The Sound Of Music’.

Considered by many to be the most successful movie musical in history, Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music took home five Oscars, including Best Picture.

Its landmark score includes some of the most beloved songs in the American songbook including “My Favourite Things,” “Edelweiss,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Do Re Mi,” "The Lonely Goatherd", “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” and the wonderful title song. A true and moving story, The Sound Of Music recalls the touching memories of Maria and the Von Trapp family, and their struggles as their homeland of Austria faces up to Nazi conversion, just prior to the Second World War.

Featuring lavish costumes, a beautifully sumptuous set, a stunning orchestral musical score and starring a cast of the very best in London's West End and UAE talent, The Sound of Music will be a wonderful experience for everyone involved.
