A unique blend of film and theatre, Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music is a one-of-a-kind musical event featuring a screening of the classic 1965 Julie Andrews film The Sound of Music in full-screen technicolor, complete with subtitles so the audience can sing along.

Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music also includes a famed “fancy-dress competition,” which features audience members wearing Sound of Music-inspired costumes invited onstage to show off their creations. Wearing a costume to the performance is encouraged.
