The countdown to Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music
Tickets still on sale for the State Theatre’s longest-running live musical
The countdown to Sydney’s beloved Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music is well and truly on, with the State Theatre’s longest running live musical now less than three weeks away.
The interactive extravaganza returns for a historic 17th year on February 18, with two special shows (1.00pm and (7.30pm) set to bring the magic of the world’s all-time most successful musical to life.
Tickets are still on sale for the event, which year-on-year sees hundreds of film fanatics and families of all ages dress to the nines and join voices in a rousing homage to the iconic 1965 Julie Andrews classic.
One of Australia’s foremost stage performers Katrina Retallick will host the event for a third consecutive year, leading the pre-screening vocal warm up, guiding audience members through the show’s interactive fun packs and accompanying actions and – with a little help from the audience – crowing the coveted best costume winner.
Presented up on the big screen in all of its technicolour glory with song sub-titles to accompany each unforgettable song, Sing-A-Long–A Sound of Music offers up an immersive bucket-list spectacle for stage-destined musical belters, avid fans and secret shower singers alike.
Attendees are applauded for their elaborate and imaginative outfits – everything from gaggles of nuns and brown paper packages tied up with string, to girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, goats and goat herders and even the Alps themselves!
“We are thrilled to welcome Katrina back as our celebrity host. Our event is all about crowd participation, and Katrina injects a great sense of fun, authenticity and drama into her role – which always helps to take the interactive experience to a whole new level,” said Dale Harrison, Co-Owner and Director of Tim Woods Entertainment
“I love helping to bring the magic of the world’s all-time most successful musical alive with so many different generations of film, musical and theatre lovers,” said host Katrina Retallick.
“The audience is always fantastic, interactive and enthusiastic. Most of them come in amazing – and sometimes hilarious – costumes and completely get into the spirit of things, and I get to choose the best costume winner!
“They raise the roof with their sing-a-longs, and some of the audience have been coming year after year. We’ve even had wedding proposals at the event!”
