Don’t miss the timeless musical that has captured the hearts of those both young and old since 1959!

The musical “must-see” of 2018, The Sound of Music returns to the Montecasino stage in April 2018 to delight fans both young and old. Starring Andre Schwartz as Captain von Trapp and Carmen Pretorius as Maria, this lavish production includes an all-star South African cast, magnificent sets and costumes, and unforgettable performances of “My Favourite Things”, “Edelweiss”, “Do-Re-Mi”, “Sixteen Going on Seventeen”, “The Lonely Goatherd”, and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.

The story

Maria, a well-loved but troubled nun is given leave from the Abbey to act as a governess to Captain Von Trapp’s seven difficult children. Having taught the children to sing and Captain Von Trapp about what it means to love and be loved, Maria helps the Von Trapp family flee to safety after the Nazi invasion of Austria.

I have travelled the world – almost 82 countries and has been in publishing since 2003. Before that I was an IT Project manager for over 20 years and woke up one day to the realisation that actually all I wanted to do was write. So I started my first magazine Style in IT which was, in essence, a newsletter. But I loved it and I started my own mouthpiece SA Commuter. I re-invented myself once Smart phones became popular and learnt Social Media so that I could be a pro at Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Now I could have fun instantly! My world has grown and includes reviews and with over 49000 followers on Trip Advisor I am in the top 1% of reviewers in South Africa. I am a true South African and a love of Johannesburg has kept me here since 1981. My stories are real and I love people and history! Now I publish Anytime Magazine in print and online as well as my blog,
