In a development that is sure to bring tears to the eyes of anyone with a heart, Oprah Winfrey has announced she will reunite the cast of The Sound of Music on her Oct. 29 show. What’s that sound, you ask? Why, it’s the hills, alive with the sound of my excitement! Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer will be in attendance – an “Edelweiss” performance better be on the show’s schedule – as well as the Von Trapp kids: Charmian Carr (“Liesl”), Nicholas Hammond (“Friedrich”), Heather Menzies-Urich (“Louisa”), Duane Chase (“Kurt”), Angela Cartwright (“Brigitta”), Debbie Turner (“Marta”), and Kym Karath (“Gretl”). It will be the first time in 45 years the Music cast has been together. Be sure to mark your DVRs now – that is, if you haven’t done so already – and to tide you over, click after the jump to watch of my favorite performances…which I may or may not have tried to recreate as a child. (Like you haven’t!)
