The hills are indeed alive, even hyperventilating, at the sound of a church production that’s actually good. Wonderful, even. Full disclosure: I happen to be in the cast, but that only makes me more qualified than anyone to attest to the hours invested by cast members, orchestra players, skilled craftsmen, costumers, light designers, directors and coaches who have created a production that will draw upwards of 10,000 people starting Thursday night. With previous shows like "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Music Man" under their belts, the creative arts team at Christ Chapel Bible Church is tackling what is quite possibly the most beloved musical of all time — for kids and parents alike. If you’re looking for a quality production for introducing Broadway to your kiddos but don’t have the budget for the standard $100 a ticket, this is the perfect venue. And the perfect show.

Tickets for all 8 performances are gone, but there will be a standby line at each performance. If this show is like the previous productions, those waiting standby will almost always get a seat. (If you don’t get a seat, I’ve been told commemorative lederhosen will be yours for the taking as well as five free throws at a Nazi dunking booth.)

In the meantime, get the kids ready for Alpine climbing, abbey roaming, and do-re-mi-ing.
