Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music back at the State Theatre!

Sing-a-long-a Sound of MusicBack by popular demand, Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music returns to its spiritual home the State Theatre, Sydey for three performances in February 2012.  The Sing-A-Long-A series, first established in 1999 as a one off event, will take place on Friday 24 & Saturday 25 February at 7:30pm and due to popular demand a family friendly Matinee on Sunday 26 February 1.00pm.

Over 1,000,000 people in 120 countries have now experienced the Sing-A-Long- A Sound of Music sensation, and Sydney audiences can once more join in an unforgettable interactive experience and tribute to the film that continues to have millions of hearts swelling. The classic movie will be played 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!

Delirious fans will 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.
