Arts Centre Melbourne Welcomes Home Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music



….And you just have to see it to believe how they dress the part!

The hugely popular Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music returns to Arts Centre Melbourne, State Theatre for three performances ONLY (Friday 16 & Saturday 17 August 7:30pm), and due to popular demand a family friendly Matinee  (Saturday 17 August at 1pm).

The very talented and bubbly Chelsea Plumley returns to hosting duties to guide the audience through what is an unforgettable interactive experience and tribute to the very unique film The Sound of Music.

See the classic movie 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 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!

An overwhelming force takes over, as delirious fans 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 worn by the audience 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, whip up a cozzie, clear your throats, fill your lungs and take your seats to become stars of the world’s favourite musical.
