The hills have been alive with The Sound of Music for 50 years this week. And to mark the anniversary, the cast of the touring production of The Sound of Music, which is in Glasgow for three weeks, celebrated with a special cake. It was cut by the show’s stars Jason Donovan and Verity Rushworth. Jason, said: “I’m thrilled to be playing Captain von Trapp on the 50th anniversary of the show – and looking forward to the next 50 years.”
Bradfords on Sauchiehall Street was called on to bake the cake.
The classic musical first lit up the London stage in 1961, running for an incredible 2385 performances. It went on, in 1965, to become an Oscarwinning film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plumber. The latest revival of the show was in 2006 after Andrew Lloyd Webber launched his TV talent search.
The show is on at the King’s Theatre until Saturday June 4.
