The Sound of Music, first performed at the Park in 2013, enchanted audiences with its soaring music and charming choreography. This was the first Rodgers and Hammerstein musical to be staged at the theatre. Rachel Kavanaugh's "superbly staged, gloriously atmospheric revival" (Mail on Sunday) was nominated for two Olivier awards for Best Musical Revival and best actress in a musical for Charlotte Wakefield who played Maria, and won the WhatsOnStage award for Best Musical Revival.
