Verity Rushworth is the new Maria in Sound of Music Tour

Connie Fisher is due to leave the role of Maria in the Sound of Music Tour when it finishes its run at Oxford New Theatre on 2nd January 2011. 

Its next port of call is the New Theatre in Hull on 29th January when Jason Donovan will be joining the tour as Captain von Trapp and Verity Rushworth will be the new Maria.

Verity is probably best known for her role as Donna Windsor-Dingle in the ITV1 soap Emmerdale which she appeared in from the age of 12 from 1998 to 2009.

In February 2009 she made her West End debut by playing the role of Penny Pingleton in hit musical Hairspray.  She has recently been appearing in the new musical Departure Lounge at Waterloo East Theatre in London.
