I wore a silk suit and my husband wore a dress jacket and pants. People are dressing rather sloppy for the theater lately. It is a special place and I enjoy seeing the folks dressed up. It makes it seem more special..

Mitsua Market on Paularino, 1.5 blocks east of Bristol on the South side of the 405 has a great food court with all kinds of Japanese Food available. The market has a great "to-go" sushi fare and in the early evening most of the sushi, made that afternoon, is marked down for a quick sale. I especially like the noodle shop closest to the check out stands of the Market, and their spicy Pork Noodles are terrific. More expensive and the best in the food court is the noodle shop in the middle of the court, about 3 stalls to the right of the first noodle shop, to the right of it, is a stall that has a great tempura, teriyaki combo, that I've enjoyed for years. Mitsua Market has wonderful desserts with shops specializing in frozen mochi and pastries, as well as fare only found in Japan. In fact, going to Mitsua is to be transported to an authentic Japanese SuperMarket and Food Court.

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.
