The hills are alive! Calling all nuns, goat herders, hills and alps, baronesses, and brown paper packages tied up with string: this event is destined to be one of your favorite things! Get ready to yodel, 3Below Fans, because this is your chance to sing-along to the most successful movie musical of all time. This is not just a chance to see the classic movie on the big screen in magnificent Technicolor; it’s a major audience participation event with subtitles for all the songs.
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s® cinematic treasure, “The Sound of Music” is the winner of five Academy Awards®, including Best Picture. In this true-life story, Julie Andrews lights up the screen as Maria, a spirited young Austrian woman who leaves the convent to become a governess for Captain von Trapp’s (Christopher Plummer) seven unruly children. Her charm and songs soon win the hearts of the children – and their father. But when Nazi Germany unites with Austria, Maria is forced to attempt a daring escape with her new family.
Your journey to Austria begins when you enter the theatre and see hundreds of fans, just like you, dressed in costumes from the movie. Our host will lead you in your do-re-mi’s to get you warmed up for singing and show you how to use all the props in your Fun Pack. Then it’s time to sing along with Julie…wave your Edelweiss…dance in the gazebo with Liesl…“roff” at Rolf…and of course, snuggle up with your little Gretel or Kurt and join in earnest choruses of “My Favorite Things.”
Keep it simple with homemade shirts for your group that read “do”, “re”, “mi”, etc, or go all out and make outfits from your curtains! Want to be a serious sing-along-er? Get creative and do something completely original: we’ve had fans who’ve paid tribute to the boo-tiful Baroness, lots of flying nuns, and even a costume that featured ALL the favorite things from the movie!
