The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to the 50th Anniversary Sound of Music Sing-a-long at the Hollywood Bowl!

Be glad you’re not hanging out in my apartment when I’m in the shower.

I’ll belt out everything from Rent, sometimes a little Wicked, and oh, for sure some Les Miz.  These guys got nothing on me.

Hey – at least I do it in the shower, right?  Cuz we’ve all been to a show and sat next to someone who can’t help but quietly sing along.  Before I punch them in the face, I try to remember that they’re doing it because they love it so much.

Well, on June 26th all shower singers and under-their-breath singers are invited to sing out Louise at the Hollywood Bowl’s Sound of Music sing-a-long, celebrating the 50th (!) anniversary of the classic R&H tuner.

Oh, I’ve got two tickets to sing-a-long for free, if you’re going to be in La-La land at the end of June.

Ready to win?

This sing-a-long is with the movie, of course.  But what if there were an actual live production that we let people sing-a-long to?  I considered doing this on Godspell . . . since so many people know those songs.

If there was a live performance sing-a-long of a show, what show would you want that to be?  (I’ve always wanted to do Grease 2 myself – can you imagine everyone singing along to “Reproduction!” and “We’re gonna boooooooooowl tonight!”)

Tell me what show yo’d want to sing-a-long to and you could be singing “Do! Re! Mi!” at the Hollywood Bowl for free!

    “A Chorus Line” or “West Side Story”

  • Elizabeth Gillespie says:

    Who doesn’t know all the songs in Jersey Boys? (This big girl will cry if you don’t agree and then I’ll just drink some Sherry so I’ll be OK but if I win Oh What a Night!)

  • Roni Geva says:

    I love “Oklahoma” for an oldie and “wicked” for a more recent one 😉

  • Hilary E Davis says:

    while I, sadly, won’t be in La-La Land (crying), I would say Hairspray would be a great one! Or Rent


  • Alex Bernstein says:

    Stage Production – Avenue Q

    Movie – Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

  • David McKibbin says:

    Book Of Mormon or In The Heights

  • Elizabeth W says:

    Lately its been Spring Awakening but I used to perform the entire show of The Sounds of Music by myself in my living room when I was little. It was the first musical that I LOVED

  • Diane Tipton says:

    For a sing a long you really need the audience to know the songs, so they CAN sing along. So, an older classic musical would work best. I’d love to see a sing a long “My Fair Lady”. Who doesn’t know “Get Me to the Church On Time”? or “Wouldn’t it be Loverly?” ( the audience can try their hand at cockney on that one) or ” I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face” for all those who came but really can’t hold a tune in a bucket.

  • Shari says:

    I would love to sing along to Rent, Grease or Les Mis (although a Les Mis sing a long could be a little scary)

  • Shari says:

    Oh and when I worked at Walt Dismey World as a greeter, I used to pass the time by singing Evita as far through the show as I could and try to beat myself each time.

  • Guys and Dolls or Annie Get Your Gun. Both have movie versions, so lots of exposure, and both are full of hummable/singable songs.

  • Perry says:

    HAIR – Everyone in the audience becomes part of the movement and the history!

  • Dawn says:

    The one we want to hear sung around us, or the one we want to try to sing? Hmm. Tough decision! I guess everyone can sing Mamma Mia (I can’t remember if they did that yet at the Bowl?), and it would be a guilty pleasure. Somebody already mentioned Hairspray. Any of the popular Disney catalog (Little Mermaid, Lion King, Aladdin, or my favorite, Beauty and the Beast) would be amazing and family-friendly. A little tougher: Fiddler on the Roof!

  • Rachel Brumer says:

    Les Miserables of course!:) People always sing a long to it when they’re in the audience so we might as well make it a thing:)

  • Kelly says:

    Hair (as directed by Diane Paulus). The audience’s participation would feel very inline with Paulus’ vision of the piece as well as the piece itself.

  • Ellen Orchid says:

    How about “Gypsy” or “South Pacific”? Either one would be so much fun. Those songs are just beautiful. I love the idea of singing to a live production. The electricity in the air would be even greater than singing to the film.

  • Elena says:

    Obviously THE WIZ!!! “Come on and ease on down ease on the road!” I’m pretty sure this sing-a-long will occur in my living room once the made for tv version comes on NBC. If this were to be at the hollywood bowl, I know soooo many people who would show up for this! The Wiz means so much as a musical for when it was made, the cast it brought together, and the joyous songs filled with soul! As an African American musical theatre patron, it would be a dream come true for me to be able to see a sea of people of all shades singing along to this musical together!

  • Stephanie says:

    Wicked! Or the (future) production of Frozen!!

  • Janet Padgett says:

    I would LOVE to sing-a-long to “Hairspray”!!!

    I would sing along to every song of the movie.
