For some time now, the hills in Sydney have been alive with The Sound of Music, with the London Palladium production of this Rodgers & Hammerstein classic being performed at the Capitol Theatre. But all shows must come to an end, and The Sound of Music is now in its final weeks. Sydney audiences now only have four more weeks to see this show, before it heads to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) Lyric Theatre.
