Hello, gorgeous!

Did you have a good weekend? Either way, we’d like to get your week off to a good start with an awesome giveaway!

We’ve got 4 tickets to see The Salzburg Marionette Theatre’s The Sound of Music at Walton Arts Center. There’s only one show and it’s on Tuesday, March 8th.

When Rodgers + Hammerstein’s beloved Broadway musical The Sound of Music was adapted to the silver screen in 1965, Twentieth Century-Fox made the decision to use marionettes in “The Lonely Goatherd” sequence, resulting in one of the most charming musical numbers ever captured on film.

Now, the magic of marionette puppetry animates the entire story, as the world famous Salzburg Marionette Theatre revitalizes the tale of the Von Trapp Family Singers. You can expect all the highlights of the beloved story, including the treasured songs “Do-Re-Mi,” “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things” and “Edelweiss.

Look at all the beautiful puppets:

  1. I love when Julie Andrews decides that she will use the drapes to make play clothes for the children. So clever.

  2. I love all parts of this movie … it’s hard to pick just one! Would love to see this version with the puppets!

  3. I love when the Captain is singing / playing Edelweiss on his guitar to the family. My three little boys would love to see this show!

  4. My kids and I adore the yodeling scene with the goat and the goatherd. Yodel-ay-he, yodel-ay-he-hooo! We also adore how that part uses marionette puppets, which a few years back inspired my younger kid to make his own marionette. Very sweet, and hilarious!

  5. I like the scenes when Andrews and the father sing together. My best friend from high school loved loved this musical! Always makes me think of her!

  6. I love the scene in their house when the captain plays the guitar and sings edelweiss! I would love to the see this!

  8. My favorite song is Edelweiss. We sang it to my granddaughter every night at bedtime. Favorite scene: the goodnight on the stairs.

  9. In the movie itself, I just love the scenery! I guess my favorite scene is the staircase scene.

  10. One of my favorite movies. I love the music. If I had to pick a favorite scene. I love the scene where they have clothes made from the drapes.

  11. My favorite scene is when Maria is dancing to the Lindler with Captain Von Trapp at the party.

  12. I love the scene when Maria and the Captain finally admit how long they have loved each other. So sweet!

  13. I volunteered as a girl scout at the aco in sprindale in the late 70’s and ushered at an outdoor presentation of the play. I loved all of it.

  14. I love the scene where they are singing good night! Pick me please! I would love to take my grandkids to this!

  15. Do, a deer, a female deer. Ra, a drop of golden sun. Me, a name, I call myself. Fa, a long long way to run!!!!!!!

  16. My favorite part of the movie is when they sing the farewell song at the talent show. It’s the part where I always start crying because I know they are about to leave. Love this movie.

  17. My favorite scene is when the kids sing So Long, Farewell at the party. I would love to take my 5 year old daughter to see this!

  18. The uncertainty of Edelweiss in the final performance at the talent show…just makes my heart swell!! And my kids LOVE this movie. What a treat to see it marionette-style!

  20. Maybe edelweiss. I had a huge crush on Christopher Plummer. In my opinion one of the best love stories ever!!

  21. I love the scene when Maria makes all the kids cry at the dinner table when she first arrives. Sitting on the pine cone and then going on and on about how welcoming they have been to her just cracks me up! Passive-aggressive, much?

  22. My favorite scene is the Hills are Alive scene!! I can almost feel and smell the beautiful Swiss mountain air!! I would love to take my daughter to see this version!!

  23. I’m a little ashamed to say it, but I’ve never actually seen it. Hoping to win and see it live for the first time!

  24. My kids have not seen the Sound of Music my girls have not seen a musical yet and the Sound of Music will be their first if chosen which will be great because I love the movie.
