THE SMASH-HIT SHOW – NOW A WORLDWIDE PHENOMENON!
“IF YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A PART OF A MUSICAL, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!”
-ABC World News Tonight
Theatre in Arlington, Massachusetts will present an exclusive return engagement of Sing-A-Long Sound of Music—eight screenings of the interactive version of the one of the most popular and successful film musicals in motion picture history—featuring on-screen lyrics, a master of ceremonies, a bag of play-a-long props, and an audience costume parade. The engagement will complete the Regent’s 95th anniversary season.
Having started in the UK back in 1999, the Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music show has become a worldwide hit, playing to packed houses across the globe with over 12,000 performances in 10 different countries! It has even filled the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles – multiple times! In 2012, it will celebrate its 13th birthday.
Let’s start at the very beginning (a very good place to start)…
For those of you not yet converted, Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music is a screening of the classic 1965 Julie Andrews film musical in glorious, full-screen Technicolor, complete with subtitled song lyrics so that the whole audience can join in! Sing along with Julie! Wave your Edelweiss! Dance in the gazebo
with Liesl! Bark at Rolf! Snuggle up with Gretl and join in earnest choruses of My Favourite Things!
The fun-filled show starts with a vocal warm-up led by the event’s host, who also takes the audience through their complimentary ‘magic moments pack’—which contains various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film, while also suggesting some appropriate heckles and accompanying actions (such as hissing the countess, barking at Rolf and, of course, cheering for Julie). The host will then lead costume–clad audience members up the theater aisles onto the stage—a wonderful photo / video opportunity. Costumes are not compulsory but they are highly recommended and you will be amazed at the inventiveness on display.
So get those vocal chords warmed up, cut up those chintz curtains and hurry down for another dose of the international smash-hit sensation! It’s the perfect night out for Christmas parties, birthday celebrations, office outings, family trips, or anyone who has ever shed a tear during ‘Edelweiss’!
