Event Notes


In the spirit of communion and good cheer, join the HAT family for a special night at the theatre you won't soon forget... where the star is YOU!

For our second year at the HAT, it's Sing-a-long Sound of Music!

We're calling all Nuns, Goat herders, Hills, Alps, Baronesses, Brown Paper Packages Tied up with String along with all of your favorite things! Follow the bouncing ball for a special screening of the classic 1965 film where the lead singer is the audience and the hills aren't the only thing alive with the sound of music. The entire audience will sing along with Maria, Captain Von Trapp, and all the children for some good-old-fashioned holiday fun and nazi-stomping.

For more than 20 years, NBC aired the Sound of Music every Christmas and now we're giving you the chance to see this classic film as it was meant to be seen: on the big screen, with a popcorn and beverage, and belting your heart out in a room full of strangers (separated, of course, by 6 feet or more).

Hosted by one of our favourite HAT performers, we'll make sure you know when the songs are coming up and subtitles will ensure that everyone knows the lyrics. You don't have to be a good singer, only enthusiasm is essential. Plus a little bit of gusto. As long as you know that Doh is a deer (a female deer), you'll be fine!

Costumes are not mandatory... but they are encouraged.

We're hoping this classic musical will be a new part of our Christmas tradition, make it your family's tradition too.

December 17th at 7:00PM

Hand sanitizer will be required upon entry. Masks will be mandatory upon entrance and throughout performance, with the exception of when eating or drinking.
