Directing this new production is Roxanne Lapus. Leading the star-studded cast are theater superstars Joanna Ampil and Cris Villonco as Maria. Audie Gemora takes on the role of Austrian Navy Captain Georg von Trapp, with Ed Feist and Jon Joven as alternates.

Adding glitz to the line-up are Pinky Marquez and Shiela Franciso as the Mother Abbess, Pinky Amador and Lynn Sherman as the Baroness Elsa Schraeder, and Marvin Ong as Rolf. Other cast members include Robbie Guevara, Miguel Faustmann and Tanya Manalang.

Live orchestration will be provided by the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra, to be conducted by musical director Rodel Colmenar.

Just watched last night's early showing. Direction was really terrible.. actors blocking was very amateurish.. Iconic scenes was terribly executed. it feels like watching a school's tribute play of The Sound Music directed by a kind volunteer student. I kinda' felt bad about the waste of a great success potential given the great material, good lead actors, excellent led background, big budget, and great promotions, just to be destroyed by a bad direction. If you're an all-time fan of the film/play, you can pass on this one.
