JOHNSTONE is set to be alive with the Sound of Music in a special run of the classic. 

St Paul's Drama will bring the Austrian Alps to the town hall from Wednesday as amateur performers of all ages do their best Julia Andrews impression. 

And tickets are selling out fast, so theatre buffs will have to be quick if they want to be transported to the tale of romance and loss set on the eve of The Second World War.

The drama school is no stranger to the theatre, having been performing in the town since 1966. Since 1990, they have held yearly shows in the town hall and have brought a host of classics to the stage - including their debut showing of Oklahoma. 

Directed by Heather Morrison, with music direction from Linda Rae, the Sound of Music is not to be missed. 

Speaking to The Gazette, Linda said: "We are just getting really excited now and looking forward to it. 

"The dress rehearsal went really well and we did it with the band - that really brought it all to life.

"Even although tickets are selling quickly, we'd still expect there to be some available on the door for every night."
