"Bring your costume (for the pre-show parade) and your vocal cords," press notes state for the 6 PM evening, which begins with a costume parade hosted by Melissa Peterman. The pre-show will be followed by the 8:15 PM presentation of the "Sound of Music" film.
The Sound of Music originally opened at Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in November 1959. Mary Martin headed a cast that also included Theodore Bikel and Patricia Neway. Julie Andrews starred in the award-winning film, and the most recent Broadway revival featured Rebecca Luker as the beloved Maria von Trapp. The classic Rodgers and Hammerstein score boasts such tunes as "Do Re Mi," "My Favorite Things," "The Sound of Music" and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain."
