HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Sing-A-Long Sound of Music makes its Hawaii premiere at the historic Hawaii Theatre, October 1-3, 2010 for three performances only; Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday family matinee closing performance, with special prices for the kids, at 2:00 p.m.
For those of you not yet converted, SING-A-LONG SOUND OF MUSIC is a screening of the 1965 classic Julie Andrews movie musical in glorious, full-screen Technicolor, complete with subtitles so the whole audience can sing along! Hawaii Theatre house organist, John McCreary, will set the mood on the 1,400-pipe Hawaii Theatre Organ as you enter the Hawaii Theatre.
The fun-filled show starts with a vocal warm-up by the evening's hosts, Eden-Lee Murray and Matt James, who also take the audience through their complimentary 'magic moment packs' which contain various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film. Each pack contains five props, which are used in unison by the entire audience during key moments of the movie.
The hosts then give the audience a guide to the appropriate actions and responses including booing the Nazis, hissing the Baroness, barking at Rolf, sighing for Gretl and, of course, cheering for Julie!
Then of course there is the famous fancy-dress competition in which everyone who has come in costume is invited onto the Hawaii Theatre stage to show off his or her fantastic tailoring skills. The audience chooses the best costumes and the winners are awarded small prizes. The object is not the winning however, rather the experience of dressing up and joining in the fun!
