The ACT Arts Centre is presenting Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music as part of the ACT Presents series on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 1 p.m.

The afternoon will see the classic Julie Andrews musical, The Sound of Music, with a theatre full of fans, singing in unison to tunes such as Maria, My Favourite Things, Edelweiss, and Do-Re-Mi.

Let’s start at the very beginning (a very good place to start), in the U.K. back in 1999, the Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music show began and has now become a worldwide hit, playing to packed houses across the globe with over 10,000 performances in 11 different countries.

It’s even filled the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles seven times over.

There is also the famous fancy-dress competition, in which everyone who has come in costume is invited onto the stage to show off their fantastic tailoring skills.

The show starts with a vocal warm-up led by the evening’s host, who also takes the audience through their complimentary fun-kit, containing various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film.

• Adult and senior tickets are $20 and youth $15. All tickets include a fun kit of props. Tickets are available at The ACT Arts Centre at 11944 Haney Pl., by phone at 604-476-2787 or online at www.theactmapleridge.org.
