"Sound of Music" Extended to January 10

The enormously popular production of The Sound of Music is running for one extra week in January, now finishing Jan. 10, 2010.

As an added treat, all tickets for this extra week of shows will be priced at only $50 and $30.

The Sound of Music began performances on Oct. 3, 2008, and won rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. The production won three Dora Mavor Moore Awards, including Best Musical Production, Best Actress (Elicia MacKenzie) and Best Set Design (Robert Jones).

With its 69-week run, Music has set a record for the longest run of a revival in Toronto. It also served as the North American premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber and David Ian’s smash hit revival of The Sound of Music in London. The Toronto production was overseen by the same award-winning creative team.

This production is also notable for its method of choosing a lead actress – the two Marias, Elicia MacKenzie and Janna Polzin, were found through the top-rated CBC television series How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? Elicia MacKenzie was chosen by the Canadian public to play Maria, and runner-up Janna Polzin was cast as the alternate Maria and performed the role twice weekly.

Elicia MacKenzie will next be seen in the Canadian premiere of Rock of Ages, which will begin performances at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in April 2010.
