Launched by Andrew Lloyd Webber, The Shows Must Go On YouTube channel presents a full production of The Sound Of Music for free this weekend.
The latest in the ongoing programme of free streaming musicals that’s heading to YouTube every Friday? That’d be a production of The Sound Of Music, that’s getting an encore run on The Shows Must Go On channel.
The Shows Must Go On, if you’ve not heard before, was launched by Andrew Lloyd Webber back in March in response to the UK and much of the world going into lockdown. Since then, every Friday, a new musical production has been made available for streaming absolutely free of charge. You get 48 hours to watch it, and a new show rolls around every week.
This week’s sees Carrie Underwood take the lead role, alongside Stephen Moyer. It’ll appear in the window below at 7pm tonight, else click straight through if you want to watch it directly on YouTube…
The synopsis for the show reads as follows…
Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer star as Maria and Captain von Trapp in this beloved story of the young novice who falls in love with Captain von Trapp and his seven children, set against the backdrop of Nazi-occupied Austria. The jewel in the Rodgers & Hammerstein crown, THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE! contains some of the most famous songs ever written for the stage, including “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” and “Edelweiss.” This version of The Sound of Music has been faithfully adapted from the original stage musical to retell the story for a whole new generation.
It goes live at 7pm, and will be available until Sunday evening. The identity of next week’s show will be revealed early next week.
