Lots of places nearby Segerstrom Center to eat, from pricey to moderate. We ate at Thasos, a moderately priced Greek restaurant, in the Bed, Bath and Beyond shopping center diagonal to Segerstrom Center. Pretty good food, and can leave your car there to save $10 parking fee. Also Japanese, Indian, Cuban or specialty Hamburger restaurants in the same center.

Quotes & Highlights

“It’s a hoot…great family fun.”
Special appearance by Charmain Carr, the original “Liesl.”
Admission includes a Fun Pak.


The Orange County Performing Arts Center will be filled with girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, nuns, wicked baronesses, goat herders, brown paper packages tied up with string and hundreds of other favorite things…at the wildly popular Sing-A-Long Sound Of Music. It’s fun for the entire family as the audience is invited to dress up in Sound of Music inspired costumes and sing along during a showing of the legendary film.

Everyone receives a Fun Pak containing an artificial sprig of edelweiss, drapery fabric reminiscent of that used for the children’s lederhosen, and other fun items. The experience begins with a costume contest, so the audience is encouraged to be creative and outrageous! A special guest host then explains how to really get into the interactive spirit. The film is screened in full cinemascope with subtitles provided for song lyrics—even the Latin sung by the nuns. Then, as the film plays, the audience sings-a-long with the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein songs. They’re also cued when to boo the Nazis, hiss the Baroness, bark at Rolf (Lisel’s boyfriend who treats her like a dog!) and, of course, cheer for Julie. It’s all great fun, and sure to become everyone’s favorite thing.
