EMMERDALE’S Donna Windsor, actress Verity Rushworth, is to star as Maria in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash hit production of The Sound of Music at the Theatre Royal Nottingham - and we have a family ticket to be won!

The ticket for four people is valid for 16th July.

Verity played Donna in the long-running ITV1 soap for 11 years and her West End theatre credits include the lead role of Penny Pingleton in Hairspray.

This lavish production of The Sound of Music tells the story of the Von Trapp family’s flight across the mountains with its unforgettable score that includes some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical stage including Edelweiss, My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, The Lonely Goatherd and the title song.

The Sound of Music has music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, with a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp.

It is directed by Jeremy Sams, with choreography by Arlene Phillips, design by Robert Jones, sound by Mick Potter and lighting by Mark Henderson.

This production of the legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein musical opened to rave reviews and sell-out business at the Wales Millennium Centre in July 2009 following a record-breaking 954 performances at the London Palladium where it was seen by well over two million people.

The Sound of Music originally premiered on Broadway in 1959, when it won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The show first opened in London in 1961 and its last London revival was in 1981, both productions having record-breaking runs. The 1965 Hollywood film, which starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, won five Oscars, including Best Picture.

The Sound of Music runs from 15th July to 6th August at Theatre Royal Nottingham. Tickets cost £15-£39.50, concessions are available. For booking go to or call 0115 989 5555.
