This new production was created for London’s Palladium Theatre in 2006, where it played for over two years before embarking on a UK tour.

The lead role of Maria was cast in London by reality show How Do You Solve A Problem like Maria?. For the Australian tour, fast rising music theatre star Amy Lehpamer (below) is playing everyone’s favourite postulant-turned-nanny Maria Rainer.
