Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music, an interactive tribute to the Academy Award-winning film, has appeared in England, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, the Netherlands, and throughout the United States. It has won the endorsement of the prestigious Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization, which oversees the rights to the songs and the scripts and maintains the Rodgers & Hammerstein legacy.
Sing-aLong-a Sound of Music is considered a family show, suitable for most audience members. However, since it involves audience participation, costume competitions, and emcee improvisation, some elements will vary from performance to performance. The show’s emcee will instruct the audience before the show on the “house rules,” including the responses that have become traditional in this popular event’s history.
Audience members at Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music do not generally make use of the kind of adult language that one might hear at the Rocky Horror Picture Show and even when their comments are a little suggestive, they are not overtly sexual. For instance, when Rolf gets romantic with Liesl in “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” someone might call out, “Don’t do it, it’s illegal!” while the captain asking Maria to take off her hat might prompt someone else to suggest, “Take it all off!” Some audience members are reliving fond memories of a much-loved movie from their childhoods while others are relishing the chance to poke a little gentle fun at the film’s sugar-coated innocence – and many audience members are doing both at the same time! As one newspaper in the United Kingdom pointed out, “It’s all done with affection rather than malice. This is a case where familiarity doesn’t breed contempt. As one nun noted as she left the theater: 'That was great fun, but I still love the film.'"
Please Note: The 5th Avenue Theatre welcomes children ages 4 and older. Children under 4, including babes in arms, will not be admitted.
