Calling all “Sound of Music” fanatics. If you know every word to every song in this timeless musical, now is the time to show off.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, the “Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music” is happening at Park Theater. This event is expected to be a more karaoke than theater showing and more party than screening.
“The classic Julie Andrews musical is shown with subtitles so the whole audience can join in the singing. There’s a costume contest and even a special announcement about a new arts program from the stage,” said Main Street McMinnville executive director Katie Kemezis.
The fun-filled show will begin with a vocal warm-up led by the evening’s host, Rev. Tommy Vann of First United Methodist Church. Vann will also take the audience through a “magic moments fun pack” containing various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film.
As for the costume contest, participants will be invited on stage to show off their fantastic tailoring skills. Previous entries have included:
• A variety of nuns of every shape and size
• A lonely Goatherd
• A 20-strong ladies group was joined together and completely covered in fake turf (the Alps)
• A man dressed in work overalls and a tool belt (Chris the Plumber).
Doors open at 5 p.m. with the program officially starting at 6 p.m. The cost for tickets are $10 per child, $20 per adult, or $55 for two adults and two children.
If you’re looking for a way to spend a ladies night, a birthday celebration, or a family night, look no further.
