What’s the Buzz with

Honey B

New mountain to climb It’s 16 going on 17 years since Stefanie Jones was previously in the Sound of Music as one of the seven von Trapp children. Jones played Brigitta as a youngster and this time round, at 24 years of age, she is playing the blossoming Liesl. “Sound of Music was a big part of my childhood and of my family’s journey into musical theatre as well,’’ she enthuses. Inspired by the lives of the actual von Trapp family, The Sound of Music tells the uplifting story of Maria, a fun-loving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Captain von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music, culminating in the family's escape from the Nazis across the mountains from Austria. This production’s Sound of Music cast are quite a formidable bunch with the likes of Cameron Daddo as Captain von Trapp, Marina Prior as the Baroness, Lorraine Bayly as Frau Schmidt and Amy Lehpamer as Maria.
