The Nazis couldn’t keep the von Trapps down. Old Man Winter tried earlier this year, but only delayed them.
“The Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music,” originally scheduled for Jan. 25 and postponed due to bad weather, will come alive at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 15 at the Clark State Performing Arts Center.
Any tickets purchased for the previous performance will be honored for this show. The family-friendly event is sponsored by the Springfield Arts Council.
“The Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music” presents the 1965 classic film and is interactive with lyrics to classics such as “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Me,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and “Edelweiss” on the screen to sing along to.
Part of the fun is also dressing like a character or something symbolic from the film. The Arts Council’s costume shop has rentals available or fans can make their own.
Doors open at 6 p.m. with a costume parade and contest with prizes for the best, and goody bags with surprise interactive pieces for use throughout the film, will be given.
“The Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music” is a fundraiser for the Springfield Arts Council, with proceeds going to support its programs, including the upcoming Summer Arts Festival.
