HOSTED BY CHELSEA PLUMLEY
Hamer Hall, Melbourne
Saturday, May 24
A fun event that is a worldwide phenomenon
Celebrating the most successful movie ever produced
Melbourne will again be alive to the Sound Of Music when everyone’s favourite Sing-A-Long performs at Arts Centre Melbourne, Hamer Hall on Saturday May 24 for 2 shows only.
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!
Once again the very talented and charming Chelsea Plumley returns to hosting duties to guide the audience through what is an unforgettable interactive experience.
The Sound of Music features the most irresistible score in movie musical history, a cast of characters known to virtually everyone and includes a fan base that would be the envy of every movie producer. The result is Sing-A-Long Sound of Music attracts an incredibly diverse audience ranging from young children to adults of all ages with hundreds of them dressing up to represent one of the many characters or song lyrics from the movie.
The costumes worn by the audience are truly inspiring. A sea of black and white will again flood the theatre foyer 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.
This is the epitome of an audience participation event. As well as dressing the part, 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!
So what are you waiting for? This is an hilarious night out where you are surrounded by like-minded fans of a truly memorable movie all looking for some good old fashioned fun.
