On Wednesday 17th August, Andrew paid a surprise visit to see the UK touring production of The Sound of Music during its run at the Norwich Theatre Royal, Norwich.

After watching the performance, Andrew met members of the cast backstage at the theatre, including the show’s Maria, Verity Rushworth.

Verity, who has received rave reviews for her portrayal of Maria, will be continuing the role during the tour’s final engagements at Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff (23 August – 3 September), Manchester Palace Theatre (6 – 17 September), Newcastle Theatre Royal (20 September – 8 October) and New Theatre Wimbledon (11 – 22 October).

“The undoubted star of the show was Verity Rushworth, a perfect Maria”  Irish Daily Mail “We couldn’t have wished for a better incarnation of Maria”  Nottingham Post “She really is superb – with a great voice and a natural charisma which more than does this revered role justice.  By any measure Verity is wonderful”  Yorkshire Evening Post
