Tear down the drapes, sew with your needle pulling thread and start practising your Do-Re-Mi’s because the unforgettable Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music experience is back again for three performances just two performances on Saturday 24 May, including a child friendly matinee.
Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music is a major audience participation event and an unparalleled night of entertainment where the audience become the stars of the show! See the classic movie on the big screen, re-mastered to its original cinematic glory and with song subtitles on the screen so whether you’re an avid Sound of Music enthusiast or only know a lyric or two, the song sub-titles ensure no one misses a beat!
This year’s event sees the return of the sensational Marika Aubrey as your Host! Currently gracing the stage as part of the stellar cast of ‘South Pacific’ and having dazzled an array of cabaret audiences across Australia and the United States, Marika will guide the animated crowd in song and action as well as judge (with a little bit of help from the Audience Clap-O-Meter!) the show’s famous audience costume parade.
For all Sing-A-Long-A- newbies, be prepared to pull out your Leisl-inspired Gazebo gown, press your best white dresses with blue satin sashes, whip up some Lederhosen made from curtain fabric, or even brown paper (packages) tied up with string! There will be everything from gaggles of nuns to goats and goat herders, even the Alps themselves! Limited only by your imagination!
A tremendous atmosphere fills the theatre, one that is well worth while experiencing first-hand, as the crowd goes wild at those iconic moments – cheering when we see our beloved Julie Andrews for the first time, wolf-whistles for the Captain, hisses for the Baroness – a favourite……and big boos for the Nazis!
Be forewarned for that memorable moment when Fraulein Maria and the Captain finally lock lips! Nothing quite prepares you for 2000 party poppers going off on cue!
So get together with a few of your favourite friends, whip up a cozzie, warm up those vocal chords and get ready to be a part of the ultimate sing-a-long experience as we celebrate the world’s favourite movie musical ever!
