Thousands dream of playing 'Maria' in Sound of Music

The hills were alive this morning.

We're not talking about the Swiss alps here, but the somewhat more forbidding landscape of the CBC Atrium, where close to 400 young women lined up for their chance to play Maria von Trapp in the production of The Sound of the Music scheduled to open in Toronto this October.

It's a repeat of the British process where a nationwide search for the right star was the basis of a highly popular television program called How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?
