YOUNG stars from a Grantham performing arts group will present their version of The Sound of Music tonight (Friday), the first of three shows.

Youngsters from the Star Academy have been busy preparing for their big production of the classic musical, which will be performed on stage at the Guildhall Arts Centre.

The story follows Maria, who is sent away to look after Captain von Trapp’s seven troublesome children. She becomes friends with the youngsters when they discover they have a mutual love of music.

The strict captain eventually begins to fall for Marie’s charms and the loved-up pair get married.

But when the Nazis invade their homeland, Austria, the whole family is forced to flee over the Alps.

The young performers from the Star Academy have been working hard to prepare for the production, and are encouraging people to go along and see the show.

The Sound of Music is on tonight and tomorrow at 7.30pm, and a matinee showing tomorrow begins at 2.30pm.

Tickets are £9 (£8). To book, call into the box office in St Peter’s Hill, call 01476 406158 or visit
