If you were never shown The Sound of Music in choir or band class, now's your chance to get in on all the Von Trapp action. The classic story, based on the Rodger's and Hammerstein musical of the same name, has been transformed into a sing-along experience that both first-timers and long-time fans can enjoy.
No worries if you weren't Julie Andrews in another life; during the live portion of the show, the host will lead the audience through a vocal warm-up. There will also be a fancy dress competition with prizes for those brave enough to strut their stuff on-stage. Costumers are not required, though they do add to the fun. The host will also show everyone how to use their complimentary goody bag of props during the movie. Think Rocky Horror Picture Show but more family-friendly.
After the live portion of the show, the 1965 movie is played in Technicolor, and it's the audience's time to shine. Don't worry if you're a little rusty on the lyrics; songs like "My Favorite Things" and "Sixteen Going On Seventeen" will be accompanied by lyrics on-screen so you can belt your heart out.
The Sound of Music Sing-A-Long is tonight, Friday, Dec. 30 at 7 pm at the INB Performing Arts Center, located at 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. Tickets are $20-$30. Go to inbpac.com or call 279-7000 for more information.
