A Local Thanksgiving Weekend Tradition Sings Again — Literally

2
When you think about Thanksgiving weekend traditions, a few thoughts probably come to mind: eating, shopping, and football. One of our favorite things to add to your list? The Music Box Theatre's annual showing of The Sound of Music. Seriously — it's about time you became familiar with the tunes "Edelweiss" and "Do-Re-Me," because this viewing party encourages you to sing along. Don't worry, this isn't a contest.

Before you settle in with your popcorn and candy (calories don't count on days like this), you'll score a bag-o'-props filled with everything from edelweiss (Salzburg festival, anyone?) to party poppers to use when Captain von Trapp finally plants a wet one on governess Maria. Whether you're 16 going on 17, or 60 going on 70, we promise, you'll want to make this event one of your newfound turkey weekend traditions.
