The perennially popular Sing-A-Long Sound of Music returns to the Hollywood Bowl for the ninth time on Saturday, September 25, 2010, at 7:30 pm. The evening, which traditionally sells-out year after year, also features the signature costume parade hosted by actress-comedienne Melissa Peterman at 6:00 pm.
The Sound of Music remains the most successful movie musical of all time and is the recipient of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. The “Sing-A-Long” version is in full-screen Technicolor featuring spectacular six-track digital sound and subtitles so the whole audience can sing along.
Based on the 1959 Broadway show, with original songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein, the film, starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, premiered on March 2, 1965, in New York City. Since then, it has earned more than $160 million. For more than four decades, generations of adults and children have enjoyed the timeless story of the governess Maria and the family von Trapp. Sing-A-Long Sound of Music is produced with Sing-A-Long Productions by arrangement with Twentieth Century Fox and the Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization.
