The Sound of Music has extended its run by one week at the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, to 14 September 2013.

Now in the third week of its run, and having already taken £1.75million at the box office, the show has become the highest grossing production in the history of the venue.

The cast is led by 22 year-old Charlotte Wakefield as Maria and Michael Xavier as Captain von Trapp.

It also includes Helen Hobson as Mother Abbess, Michael Matus as Max Detweiler, Caroline Keiff as Elsa Schraeder, Faye Bookes as Liesl and Joshua Tonks as Rolf Gruber.

The Sound of Music is directed by Rachel Kavanaugh who, prior to her tenure as artistic director of Birmingham Rep (2006-2010), directed numerous productions at the Open Air Theatre.

Set and costume designs are by Peter McKintosh and choreography by Alistair David.
