Sing along with (or just watch) “The Sound of Music”

Sometimes it’s just not enough to watch that family favorite film, “The Sound of Music.” If you love singing along with Julie Andrews to all those fab songs (“Doe a Deer,” “Edelweiss”) then you’ll want to get your costume on and go to the sing-along screenings at either the Pantages or the Washington Center. If you want to see the Von Trapp family come to life, head to a live theater performance at Tacoma Musical Playhouse.

Sing-alongs: 2 p.m. Nov. 24 at Pantages Theater, 901 Broadway, Tacoma. $24. 253-591-5894, broadwaycenter.org. Also 5 p.m. Nov. 25 at Washington Center, 512 Washington St. SE, Olympia. $16/$14/$5. 360-753-8586, washingtoncenter.org

Theater: 8 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays, 2 p.m. Saturdays-Sundays through Dec. 16 at Tacoma Musical Playhouse, 5116 6th Ave., Tacoma. $29/$27/$20. 253-565-6867, tmp.org

B2 gallery goes “Beyond Crayons and Fingerpaint”
