Who will be the next Maria von Trapp?

Press Release:

The search to find Canada's Maria von Trapp starts January 25, 2008 with a seven-city cross-country audition tour that will culminate in the eight-week CBC Television series How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? produced by Temple Street Productions in association with CBC Television. On this television show the Canadian public will choose who will play the most famous role in musical theatre in a brand new production of the beloved musical THE SOUND OF MUSIC (produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber, David Ian and David Mirvish) that will open in October 2008 at Toronto's Princess of Wales Theatre.

Audition dates and further info at www.areyoumaria.com

I'm getting more and more of these singers audition notices and will post the more interesting ones. This is clever marketing and based on the successful BBC talent show "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?". This is one heck of an opportunity for some lucky (and talented) singer and do remember that the Von Trapp Singers were (and are till this day) primarily an a cappella singing group. Surely that must make the real Maria a cappella's biggest star ever!!
