6:00 p.m. Doors | 7:00 p.m. Showtime
Sing along with Maria, the Captain, and all the von Trapp kids as The National WWII Museum hosts a participatory screening of the 1965 film classic The Sound of Music.
Back by popular demand, guests should anticipate a night of campy nuns, costumes, sweet songs, and laughter. Participants are encouraged to dress up, boo the Nazis, and sing along with everyone’s favorite Rodgers & Hammerstein tunes from the Austrian countryside—“Edelweiss,” “My Favorite Things,” “Climb Ev'ry Mountain,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and, of course, the stirring title song.
Hosts Becky Allen, Sean Patterson, and Mandy Zirkenbach will preside over the festivities, which include an intermission costume contest, a selfie station, and giant video displays screening the film as well as a live feed from participants’ social-media accounts for real-time commentary and 140-character comedy.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. in the Museum’s US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center. The film will begin at 7:00 p.m. Snacks will be available for purchase, as well as a cash bar.
**Please Note: The Sound Of Music Sing-Along will feature unpredictable interactive elements in a live setting—costumes, Twitter posts, and the larger-than-life hosts—that may not be appropriate for all ages.**
Tickets are $10 and advanced purchase is required. Purchase one now!
