(Macao, Nov. 27, 2017) – Rehearsals were underway this weekend for THE SOUND OF MUSIC  cast which included 20 children – seven from Macao and 13 from Hong Kong – who all successfully auditioned to play the roles of the Von Trapp children . The musical will play at The Venetian Theatre from Dec. 20, 2017 to Jan. 7, 2018. Tickets are now on sale at Cotai Ticketing:

The opportunity of a lifetime for the talented youngsters came after they were selected from around 300 children aged between 6 and 14 with a natural ability for singing, dancing and acting who were invited to the auditions. 

The classic Broadway and West End musical will run for a limited season at The Venetian Theatre during the Christmas and New Year holidays, giving the gifted young performers the chance to be on stage alongside a world-acclaimed cast and crew. The successful 20 youngsters will alternate between performances of the two boys and four girls who comprise the Von Trapp children.

Promoted by Chessman Entertainment and The Venetian Macao, the critically acclaimed THE SOUND OF MUSIC tells the uplifting true story of a young Austrian governess who brings music and love into the lives of seven children and their widowed father during the outbreak of the Second World War. Its musical score includes some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the stage, including “My Favorite Things”, “Do-Re-Mi”, “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”, “The Lonely Goatherd”, “Sixteen Going on Seventeen”, and wonderful title song “The Sound of Music”.
