Back by popular demand, Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music returns to its spiritual home the State Theatre for three performances ONLY (Friday 24 & Saturday 25 February, 2012 7:30pm), and due to popular demand a family friendly Matinee (Sunday 26 Feb 1.00pm).
Lovers of The Sound of Music join in an unforgettable interactive experience and tribute to the film that continues to have millions of hearts swelling.
See the classic movie on the big screen, re-mastered to its original cinematic glory. Admit it, you know the words – and if you don’t there are song-sub-titles so EVERYONE can sing a-long! Sing-A-Long –A Sound of Music is an audience participation event where the celebrity host leads a vocal warm-up, gives a guide to the use of the interactive fun pack and accompanying actions and (with a little help from the audience) judges the costume parade – a highlight of the night that separates the die-hards from the dabblers!
Fiery sensation, Marika Aubrey who has graced the stage of cabaret theatres in Sydney and New York City joins in the fun as host of the evening. More than a drop of golden sun, Marika takes a pre-screening vocal warm up and cajoles the audience in song and action; also judging a spectacular audience costume parade.
Put on your best lederhosen and head out to the Sound of Music Sing-a-Long
An overwhelming force takes over, as delirious fans cheer on Julie Andrews, wolf-whistle Christopher Plummer, hiss the Baroness and boo the Nazis! And who could forget the glorious moment when Maria and the Captain finally kiss? Not to mention the experience of 2000 party poppers going off simultaneously as their lips touch!
The costumes are truly inspiring. A sea of black and white floods the foyer of the State Theatre year after year as fans eagerly dressed as nuns gather for the show and sing a few of their favourite songs. Audience members have dressed as anything and everything from the movie…. Maria, girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, Plumbers (Christopher Plummers!) the Alps, brown paper packages tied up with string, goats (with or without lonely goatherds), larks that are learning to pray – the possibilities are endless….. limited only by your imagination.
So what are you waiting for? Frock up for the ultimate musical affirmation; a celebration of nature, spirituality, love, family, patriotism, and goodness, combined with perfectly pitched songs, and the screen presence of feisty, Julie Andrews.
Round up your favourite friends, take your vows, and tear down the curtains, clear your throats, fill your lungs and take your seats to become stars of the world’s favourite musical.
The event will take place at Sydney’s State Theatre, on Friday 24th & Saturday 25th February 2012 at 7.30pm and Sunday 26th February with a matinee at 1.00pm
