Check out Bossy’s daughter, Brigitta, and her talented von Trapp siblings perform Do Re Mi.
And no, Bossy didn’t take this video and, no, that isn’t Bossy laughing into the video microphone — just like it’s not Bossy coughing, and it’s not Bossy playing the flute or the fiddle, although she sure wishes she had done all of the above.
However, Bossy did paint the boulder! The boulder not in this scene.

Oh dear Lord… I’ve got a lump in my throat.
Bossy’s daughter? You are da’ bomb.
Grandma J saysMay 27, 2009 at 9:27 am
Bossy’s daughter is headed to stardom! Brigitta’s dress is the whitest and brightest of all the vonTrapps.
Jacquie saysMay 27, 2009 at 9:32 am
Love it, and everyone who encounters me today will also love my rendition, which I will be singing nonstop.
Jenni D saysMay 27, 2009 at 9:35 am
Got me all goose-bumpy. I will now march around my kitchen pretending to be Brigita.
Philly saysMay 27, 2009 at 9:40 am
Great video , you must be sooooo proud!!!
Chookooloonks saysMay 27, 2009 at 10:05 am
Good Lord. I’m sitting here crying for *your* child. Imagine the mess I’m going to be in when one day it’s *mine.*
You must be so proud!
Joan saysMay 27, 2009 at 10:14 am
Did you sob through the entire production? I would have! They’re all adorable and talented. Love local theater!
Kelly saysMay 27, 2009 at 11:10 am
That is wonderful! What fun!
Ms. Cranky Pants saysMay 27, 2009 at 11:23 am
Bravo, Bossy’s daughter!
POD saysMay 27, 2009 at 11:25 am
Is the boulder on youtube?
Golden saysMay 27, 2009 at 11:45 am
Awww, that was awesome!
Man, you guys some some real theater there. Is this at her school? With real sets? And real costumes? That fit? that match each other? And the talent!
David saysMay 27, 2009 at 11:51 am
Pretty damn impressive production values. And I rarely had a proper orchestra for my community theater productions. Jealous. Looking forward to watching this again at home, where I can actually HEAR them sing it. Of course that didn’t stop me from singing along in my head while I watched it in silence.
“But it doesn’t mean anything!”
Auds at Barking Mad saysMay 27, 2009 at 12:02 pm
I knew better than to watch this with Imp on my lap. Have watched it no less than 22 times this morning. Did I mention that SoM is like her FAVOURITE MOVIE EVER? Oiy!
Bossy’s daughter makes for a beautiful and talented Brigitta!
And now, I have that song stuck in my head. Thanks for the earworm! *lol*
julie saysMay 27, 2009 at 12:04 pm
How great! Lovely production all around. And it encouraged me to look up some local theater here. Booked tickets for this weekend; yay!

Little Miss Sunshine State saysMay 27, 2009 at 12:31 pm
There is a bright light that shines from Bossy’s Daughter.
Reeb saysMay 27, 2009 at 12:38 pm
The silence is deafening here at the moment: the video seized up JUST as Maria was tapping each kid on the head for their “do!” “re!” “mi!” one-at-a-time moment. Stopped halfway through “re!” so I didn’t get to see little Miss Sunshine sparkle with her one syllable. So sweet the rest of it. Will try later.
Still impressed at live musicians. What’s this theater/group?
Reeb saysMay 27, 2009 at 12:39 pm
But I did enjoy her sparkling before the missing “mi”!
foolery saysMay 27, 2009 at 1:14 pm
She will remember this for the rest of her life. Wonderful. Enjoy this week, Bossy family. : )
Caroline saysMay 27, 2009 at 2:03 pm
That does it!!! I WANT TO MOVE TO BOSSYVILLE. And hang out and drink wine with Bossy and Amy and Martha, and jam with Mr. Bossy and Bossy’s brother, and make covered dishes for the block parties, and enjoy plays and musicals at the Bossyville Community Theatre.
Yes. I want to catch the next bus to Bossyville.
Amber Star saysMay 27, 2009 at 2:23 pm
That is so sweet! Your daughter is very talented, although we who read your blog are somewhat biased in our toward opinions of your family, home, etc.
Maria saysMay 27, 2009 at 2:40 pm
Can I be jealous of bossy’s daughter at 41? You’re living my childhood fantasy, bossy’s daughter! Go get ’em! Break a leg and all that stuff! You’re a great Brigitta no matter how it’s spelled!
And Julie Andrews looks really different…
The Cheap Chick saysMay 27, 2009 at 2:41 pm
*Sniffle* So proud! She’s not even my child, nor have I ever met her, and yet. So PROUD!
Bobbie saysMay 27, 2009 at 3:05 pm
I actually started clapping with the crowd! Thank God my kids aren’t home.
Julie saysMay 27, 2009 at 3:10 pm
How terrific! Both my kids have been in SoM and you know what I discovered? The so-called bland and sappy musical takes on some pretty big issues! Bravo and brava to Rodgers, Hammerstein, Bossy’s daughter, and my own two too!
Franca Bollo saysMay 27, 2009 at 3:41 pm
Holy crap. Excuse me but the whole production’s pretty impressive. I loved how Brigitta puts a guiding hand on the littlest girl’s back near the end. An subtle indication of Bossy’s daughter’s nature. Brava!
Catherine McP saysMay 27, 2009 at 3:53 pm
What a great community theater you got! I also got to say I love # 21 Carolines response!
Mr Farty saysMay 27, 2009 at 5:23 pm
Singing and dancing at the same time? Call Simon Cowell now!
dexter saysMay 27, 2009 at 8:06 pm
I went to see this community production on Sunday and trust me, A BROADWAY PRODUCTION BROKE OUT!!!! I was floored!!!! This was no day at an amateur theater. They had a freakin orchestra and real sets and amazing talent. IM still amazed how great it was.
Ree (The Other One) saysMay 27, 2009 at 8:47 pm
Amazing. Absolutely, wonderfully amazing.
I bet Bossy’s boulder was awesome too.
Cindy Z saysMay 28, 2009 at 12:32 am
Love this!! Boulder was cute too, but nothing as cute and talented as Bossy’s daughter! I can’t wait to show my son this in the morning! He just landed a part in Seussical the Musical in a local community theater. He is doing 19 songs 🙂
Life with Kaishon saysMay 28, 2009 at 2:12 am
Wow. She is so talented : ). I know you must have been beaming with pride : ).
MariaV saysMay 28, 2009 at 3:51 am
Way to go Bossy’s daughter!
Dorrie saysMay 28, 2009 at 9:17 am
She is very talented. May all her dreams come true and she take her talent as far as she wants to go. You can tell she loves it.
rata2e saysMay 28, 2009 at 9:54 pm
And check out the Sound of Music train station:
Audubon Ron saysMay 28, 2009 at 11:12 pm
Audubon Ron did at least two theater performances each year all through high school and several shows in sort of semi-professional theater in New Orleans. Audubon Ron’s mom use to attend the performances and she would cackle mostly when the audience was silent. Ron’s friends would say, “Ron, your mom is out there.”
Caroline saysMay 29, 2009 at 11:21 am
That was super! Thank you so much for sharing. My 12 yr old son recently tried out for “Gypsy” … then he found out it was about a stripper. He’s dying to get the part now!
Brava (!) to Bossy’s daughter!
Gail M. Kimball saysMay 30, 2009 at 8:22 pm
Standing ovation here!! They are all wonderful!
Bossy and Bossy’s Husband must be so proud of their daughter, she has such stage presence!
