Let’s start at the very beginning (a very good place to start) ...

Sing-A-Long Sound of Music is a screening of the classic Julie Andrews film musical in glorious, full-screen Technicolor complete with subtitles so that the whole audience can sing along. This inventive evening of entertainment has played worldwide; even filling the Hollywood Bowl – 18,000 people – three times.

FAC Performing Arts Director Scott RC Levy describes it as "a family-friendly version of the late-night Rocky Horror Show screenings."

Songs from The Sound of Music have become standards in the American songbook, including the title song, Edelweiss, My Favorite Things, Climb Ev’ry Mountain and Do-Re-Mi.

An interesting 75th Anniversary note, The Trapp Family Singers – the von Trapps of Austria depicted in the film – performed on the stage at the FAC in the late 1930s.

The fun-filled show starts with a vocal warm-up led by the evening’s host, who also takes the audience through their complimentary ‘magic moments pack’ containing various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film.

Then of course there is the famous fancy-dress competition in which everyone who has come in costume is invited onto the stage to show off their fantastic tailoring skills. Fancy dress is not obligatory but highly recommended! And really, wouldn't you feel left out if you didn't bring a costume?

Looks like a very fun event, it just seems pretty expensive for a family to be able to do it together. Definitely out of our budget right now.

I'm planning to attend with a couple of friends, but where in the heck would one acquire (inexpensive) costumes for this event, short of sewing them all? Didn't have time for that. Any ideas out there? I don't have a "habit" sitting around anywhere (other than those of a non-substantive variety), nor any leiderhosen.....help!!

I agree....too bad - I have 7 grandkids I'd LOVE to bring and have them experience this. How could I pick just one of them - and even at that, it's too expensive....sad.

Expensive? $20 a ticket is a great price! Much less than the plays I usually attend or tickets to any of the various shows that come through the Springs that I take my nieces to.

This will be a fabulous event with a wonderful film in one of my fave venues in the Springs!

The hills are alive, with the sound of music...with songs they have sung for a thousand years...the hills fill my heart with the sound of music

What will this day be like?
I wonder
What will my future be?
I wonder
It could be so exciting
To be out in the world
To be free
My heart should be wildly rejoicing
Oh whats the matter with me?

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens/Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens/Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings/These are a few of my favorite things!

Looks like a terrific event, real shame that I found out about it too late. The kids would have loved it over the holidays.

You should definitely check out this mashup of Take Five and My Favorite things. I'm sure you'll appreciate its jazzy feel.
It's called 'Take Five My Favorite Things MASHUP'

The fabric of public society lies in the manners of the individuals that make up that society. To hold this fabric together, you have to have those manners. If you don’t have them, then public society will kick you out.
