Rodgers & Hammerstein fans across the region – it’s time for you to get those vocal chords warmed up, and enjoy the party Sing-a-long-a are throwing for to celebrate The Sound of Music’s 50th Anniversary! For those of you not yet converted, Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music is a screening of the classic Julie Andrews film in glorious, full-screen technicolour, complete with subtitles and props for you all to sing along. The fun-filled show starts with a vocal warm-up led by the evening’s host, there’s then of course a fancy-dress competition (optional) in which everyone in costume is invited onto the stage to show off their snazzy outfits. And finally, to celebrate the movie’s special day everyone will take home a free memorabilia brochure!
Two of Yorkshire’s finest pianists take to the stage to deliver an unforgettable duelling rock ‘n’ roll piano experience. David Barton and Al Kilvo will each take you back in time as they sing and play the songs of the American 1950s rock ‘n’ roll era, interpreted in their own individual style. The evening will progress into a climatic piano duel, finishing on some of the greatest hits from the ‘Killer’, Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry and many more.
