You could say the Pentland Hills were alive with the sound of music, when Balerno schoolgirl Vivienne Smith won the role of Maria in her school production of The Sound of Music.

Just 14 at the time, that role would set her on the path to becoming a musical theatre star.

The actress, now 21 (“Nearly 22,” she chips in), recalls, “Currie High School did The Sound of Music as their end-of-year play. I’d never sung before, but auditioned for Maria, and got the part. I totally fell in love with the feeling of being on stage.”
