With a personality that simply screams fun and entertainment, international superstar, sex symbol and piano accordionist Hans will host live shows on his Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music Tour.
Taking to the stage and performing isn’t new to Hans, who previously gained considerable recognition for his talent and sizzle on America’s Got Talent and is excited to share this live and interactive movie experience with audiences.
Included in this exciting event is a costume parade with prizes, for which Hans will give the audience plenty of encouragement through his own suitably fabulous choices, with a Maria von Trapp curtain number and a few sparkly outfits.
As one of the famous lines from the movie itself, this interaction proves that ‘when you know the notes to sing, you can sing most anything’.
The song lyrics appear on the screen but the multi-award winning boy wonder from Berlin will be appearing live to show the audience just how to sing-a-long to all the magnificent songs this classic Academy Award-winning film has to offer.
Audiences are invited to come dressed as their favourite character or “thing” from the movie and cheer for Maria, wave their Edelweiss in the air, boo the Nazis and hiss the Baroness.
Having provided this style of entertainment all around the world, Hans is particularly excited to bring it to regional Australia.
For Hans there is added excitement because it is his first time in Bundaberg and the chance to tour a few spots before bringing out his Sound of Music best.
“It truly is the most fun night out because the whole community can get involved and have a great time, from children through to grandparents,” he said.
“The beauty of this movie is that it is filled with timeless songs that really allow the audience to get involved; we even provide flowers for the audience to wave in the air during Edelweiss, it is really quite beautiful.
“I actually watch the movie every single time and am always drawn in and see different things each time, I truly love it.
“I am the perfect personality for this type of event because not only do I like to have fun and encourage others to sing, but I have actually done the full Sound of Music tour and even paid $700 to meet Julie Andrews I am such a fan.”
The Sing-A-Long-A Sound Of Music which will be screening at Moncrieff Entertainment Centre in Bundaberg on Saturday 24 July.
