So long, farewell my eye, the cast from the classic musical The Sound of Music are back! When was the last time that you saw every member of the famous Von Trapp family in the same place at the same time? A while ago Julie Andrews and the seven actors who played the children appeared on a national news program but Christopher Plummer was unable to attend. Therefore it wasn’t really an reunion was it?
Today we’ve learned that after 45 years, Andrews, Plummer, Charmian Carr, Nicholas Hammond, Heather Menzies-Urich, Duane Chase, Angela Cartwright, Debbie Turner, and Kym Karath will all reunite on an upcoming episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
The host announced that the cast will appear on the October 29th episode of her show. Mark your calendars because this really is a once and a lifetime opportunity. Oprah is pulling out all the stops for her final season, because this is nothing short of a miracle. The Sound of Music is my favorite Julie Andrews film and I have fond memories of watching it as a child. I’m sure there are plenty of people out there besides myself who would love to see the cast together again.
Here’s a clip from the film that features one of its most famous songs: So Long, Farewell.
Will you tune in to watch the Sound of Music cast on Oprah? Are you interested in seeing them together again?
