The Sound of Music Sing-a-Long

Fri, Nov 26th, 2021 to Sun, Nov 28th, 2021

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 over 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 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!


General Admission - $14
