Almost the Sound of Music is mini rock musical written by Charl-Johan Lingenfelder

A skit based on The Sound of Music, in which Maria, a clumsy dancer in a shady "night club", is sent into the world to teach a diplomat's children Afrikaans.

1994: Performed by CAPAB, directed by Mark Graham, with Anthea Thompson, Christine Weir and Heinrich Reisenhofer playing multiple roles. Performed in the H.B. Thom Theatre, the Nico Malan Theatre, and at the Grahamstown Festival. There was some controversy about copyright issues in their use of the original poster of The Sound of Music for the skit.
