Mia went through a rigorous audition process last year to get the role of Louisa von Trapp and has been with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s, Really Useful Group (RUG) for two months rehearsing and taking the production around China. They are travelling to many places around China including Beijing, Changqing and Guangzhou.

You can find out how to get tickets here but hurry, they are selling fast!

We will catch up with Mia soon to find out more about her experience, so watch this space.

For those of you who may not have seen the famous musical, below is a little bit about its history: 

The Sound of Music (1959) is a musical with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. It is based on the memoir of Maria von Trapp, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers. Many songs from the musical have become standards, such as "Edelweiss", "My Favorite Things", "Climb Ev'ry Mountain", "Do-Re-Mi", and the title song "The Sound of Music". The musical was adapted as a 1965 film musical starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, which won five Academy Awards.
