Further casting has been announced for ITV's upcoming live broadcast of The Sound of Music.

As previously announced, the cast will be led by Kara Tointon as Maria, Julian Ovenden as Captain Von Trapp, Katherine Kelly as Baroness Elsa Schraeder and Alexander Armstrong as Max Detweiler.

Joining the cast are West End legend Maria Friedman as Mother Abbess, Mel Giedroyc as Frau Schmidt and Evelyn Hoskins as Liesl von Trapp. The company will also include Jon Tarcy and Paul Copley.

Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical will be broadcast over Christmas. The creative team includes Coky Giedroyc (creative director), Martin Koch (musical supervisor) and Richard Valentine (television director).

ITV's live broadcast of The Sound of Music follows NBC's The Sound of Music Live in 2013 which starred Carrie Underwood as Maria von Trapp, Stephen Moyer as Captain Georg von Trapp and Audra McDonald as Mother Abbess, attracting 18.62 million live viewers.

  1. I am looking forward to ITV's live broadcast of The Sound of Music this Christmas
    I think it will be broadcast on either Sunday 20th December 2015 or on Christmas Day (Friday 25th December 2015)
    The cast looks good so far now that they have cast Maria Friedman as the Mother Abbess and Mel Giedroyc as Frau Schmidt and Evelyn Hoskins as Liesel Von Trapp but they still need to cast some more of the Von Trapp children
    Please release this on DVD
