The Sound of Music Sing-a-Long

Fri, Nov 24th, 2017 to Sun, Dec 3rd, 2017


A Music Box Theatre Thanksgiving Tradition! The classic film with on-screen lyrics so everyone can sing along | Includes pre-show costume contest & interactive fun packs 

For nearly a decade, Thanksgiving has been celebrated at the Music Box Theatre with the Von Trapp Family Players and THE SOUND OF MUSIC. This annual event has grown now to two weekends, with thousands of people joining in on the fun. This fun-filled tradition includes a screening of the classic Julie Andrews musical in glorious, full-screen technicolor, complete with subtitles so that the whole audience can sing along!

The fun actually starts before the film, with a vocal warm-up led by the evening’s host and our house organist on the famous Music Box organ.  Every member of the audience receives a complimentary Magic Moments Pack, containing various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film.

Then of course there is the famous Costume Contest, in which everyone who has come in costume (and there are many!) is invited onto the stage to show off their tailoring skills. After a winner is chosen by the audience, it's time to sing-a-long with THE SOUND OF MUSIC!

The Sound of Music

A FILM BY: Robert Wise
STARRING: Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer

In this classic film, Maria (Julie Andrews, in an Oscar-nominated performance) joins the von Trapp family as a governess in Austria, right before the Nazi occupation. She teaches the von Trapp children music, while also falling in love with the Captain von Trapp (Christopher Plummer).

A story about love, music, joy, and fighting for what is right, THE SOUND OF MUSIC is a film for all ages.

The lyrics will appear on screen for anyone who doesn’t know all the words to “The Sound of Music,” “Do-Re-Me,” and of course, “My Favorite Things.”
Winner of the Best Picture Academy Award, THE SOUND OF MUSIC quickly became the highest grossing film ever during its initial release, and remains one of the most beloved films of all time for people the world over.
