Musical Nazis!

If your nanny made kickass matching outfits for your seven kids out of nasty curtains, you'd probably bone her. Especially if all your other bone-able options were super scary Nazi chicks. But, would you be a total douche and make her call you "Captain" like that bag o' dongs Georg Von Trapp does? At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, see The Sound of Music starring Jacquelyn Piro Donovan and Patty Goble at Casa Manana Theatre, 3101 W. Lancaster Ave. in Fort Worth. Can't make it on Wednesday? Not to worry: The show runs until the 19th (and if you go to the 7 p.m. closing night performance, it's a sing-along! Which means you get to sing that "Edelweiss" song at the top of your lungs if you want and nobody can kick you out! Bring your guitar and be awesoooome!). Tickets are $40 to $65. Yikes. Maybe just plug in the DVD and sing "I Am Sixteen Going On Seventeen" in the free freeness of your own home instead. Call 817-332-2272 or visit
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 11. Continues through Sept. 19, 2010
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
