CARLUKE Amateur Operatic Society is alive with The Sound of Music as members celebrate its 90th anniversary with a show not to be missed.

The Sound of Music stars take to the stage this week at Carluke Lifestyles Centre as the cast members look to celebrate CAOS’ birthday in style.

The Gazette was given a sneak preview of the show and it’s one that the whole family will enjoy.

The show stars Jonathan Procter as Captain Von Trapp – the same role he played in 1991 when CAOS last staged the Sound of Music.

The role of Maria will be played on this occasion by Claire Wheatley with Elaine Mitchell starring as her rival, the grand Baroness. Eileen Clifford will play Margareta with Carol Whitelaw playing the part of Mother Abbess.

The cast is supported by a number of energetic children as the Von Trapp kids.

The Sound of Music will be staged from November 12 to 17 at Carluke Lifestyles Centre. Tickets are priced from £8 to £13 with a family of four discount available for the Saturday matinee of just £36.

To purchase tickets or for more information please contact Janette on 01555 770614 or email info@carlukecaos.co.uk.
