Sing a Long Sound of Music in Barrington

310. Get Ready for the "Sing-a-Long Sound of Music"

 Bedtime has become a challenge in our house. Within five minutes of putting my 2-year-old daughter to bed, I hear a thump and little footsteps upstairs. She recently learned how to climb out of her crib and has somehow picked up a few negotiating skills as well. I repeatedly say, “Grace. Do NOT get out of this crib.” And she repeatedly replies, “OK, Mommy. Will you sing me a song?” But she doesn’t mean ONE song. She asks for another, and another and another.

I may not be a master of song lyrics, but if I’m wrestling with a nocturnal toddler, I can sing the whole Sound of Music soundtrack if I have to. And I’m quite sure it won’t be long before she’s begging me to stop.  How serendipitous that I’ve tuned up my “Do-re-mi” just in time for next weekend’s “Sing-a-long Sound of Music” at Barrington High School celebrating the film’s 40th anniversary!

All are welcome to join the “Sing-a-Long Sound of Music” in the BHS Auditorium next Saturday, February 12th, at 7PM or next Sunday, February 13th, at 2PM. The ticket price is $10 and includes a screening of the classic movie in full-screen Technicolor with subtitles so the audience can sing along. Is there anyone else out there who gets weepy when you hear this song?…
