The Waldo Theatre is kicking-off the holiday season with a fun and festive post-Thanksgiving Sound of Music Community Sing-A-Long on Friday, November 25, at 4pm. The event is a one-show-only screening of the 1965 Julie Andrews film musical in glorious, full-screen
Technicolor, with subtitles so that everyone in The Waldo can sing along to the magnificent music of
Rodgers and Hammerstein. A host, a costume contest, and free interactive prop bags for every audience
member help ensure this will be a memorable afternoon.
“This isn’t just a movie, it’s a fun event for everyone aged 6 to 96,” said Susan Hodder, The Waldo’s
Executive Director. “The audience will be the star of this interactive show. It’s a perfect activity for the
day after Thanksgiving, so bring family and friends to share in the fun, sing your heart out, and costumes
are optional, but you could be a winner!”
There will be prizes awarded for Most Authentic and Most Creative costumes. Suggestions include
dressing as Maria, Baron von Trapp, the Baroness or Sister Margaretta. Or, for the more inventive
among us, dress as the Alps, the Lonely Goatherd, or…a “brown paper package, tied up with string”!
Every audience member who purchases a ticket will be eligible to win one of several terrific door prizes
donated by local merchants, and refreshments and snacks will be available for purchase. The Waldo is
asking those who are able to please bring a canned food donation for the Waldoboro Food Pantry.
The Presenting Sponsor for this event is the family of Jo Ann C. Stevenson. Contributing Sponsors include
Morse’s Sauerkraut, Perch Cafe and Bakery, Lakin’s Gorges Cheese at East Forty Farm, Moose Crossing
Garden Center, and Shelley’s Flowers and Gifts. Adult Tickets are $10 online/$15 at the door. Youth
tickets are $5.
