Calling All Lonely Goatherds

June 20, 2013


Not only will you not be shushed if you warble along with "Do-Re- Mi,"but you're actually encouraged to belt out the von Trapp kids' partsat the Bergen County Players' production of "The Sing-Along Sound of Music."

TELL ME MORE: The show, conceived and directed by Steve Bell, is a compressed one-hour concert sing-along adaptation of the classic show, which has been a hit on both Broadway and the big screen. (It was, of course, based on the memoir of postulant-turned-nanny- turned-stepmother Maria von Trapp.) BCP's "The Sing-Along Sound of Music" encourages audience members to come dressed in the costume of their favorite character -- be it a nun, a baroness, or perhaps a rich child wearing onetime draperies as playwear? -- and even to come onstage to take part in the wedding processional. The show's cast includes Sarah Feinmark of Hawthorne (as Maria), Cheryl Woertz of Alpine (the Mother Abbess) and Chris McVey of Ho-Ho-Kus (the Captain). This is the final production of the 80th season of BCP, a non-Equity, non-profit community theater company founded in 1932.

DETAILS: The Little Firehouse Theatre, 298 Kinderkamack Road. $10 per person. 201-261-4200 or
