Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music
HOSTED BY CHELSEA PLUMLEY
A fun event that is a worldwide phenomenon
2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the most successful movie musical of all time, The Sound of Music and we plan to celebrate with Frauleins and Friedrichs, Louisas and Liesels, Baronesses and Brigittas. it’s that time of year again, the time when Hamer Hall comes alive with everyone’s favourite sing-a-long, The Sound of Music… with the songs we have heard for fifty years!
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 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!
Once again the very talented and charming Chelsea Plumley returns to hosting duties to guide the audience through what is an unforgettable interactive experience.
The Sound of Music features the most irresistible score in movie musical history, a cast of characters known to virtually everyone and includes a fan base that would be the envy of every movie producer. Sing-A-Long Sound of Music attracts an incredibly diverse audience, ranging from young children to adults of all ages, with hundreds of them dressing up to represent one of the many characters or song lyrics from the movie.
The costumes worn by the audience are truly inspiring. A sea of black and white, each year, floods the theatre foyer as eager fans, 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.
Fifty years on since Julie Andrews first sang her way into our hearts as Fraulein Maria, fifty years since we first fell in love with the glorious scenery and soaring peaks of Salzburg, (not to mention Captain Von Trapp – swoon!). And still The Sound of Music remains the world’s favourite movie musical of all time.
Whether you are a family of stage-destined musical belters or a secret shower singer, Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music is a bucket-list experience you cannot miss!
