Out of the many joys of the holiday season, one thing is certain. Following the film release of ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ about the film adaptation of Mary Poppins and the recent live television special of ‘The Sound of Music,’ there is no one quite like Julie Andrews.
The Hingham Civic Music Theatre has had to reschedule auditions for their spring musical, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s ‘The Sound of Music’ due to snow. New audition dates are now set for Monday, February 3 and Tuesday, February 4 at Hingham Town Hall, 210 Central Street in Hingham, Massachusetts at 7 p.m.
