'Sound of Music' child actors reunite wearing costume-inspired masks

October 13, 2020

The surviving child actors from "The Sound of Music" came together to share a special message with their fans - and they were all donning a nod to classic costumes from the film.

Actress and designer Debbie Turner, known for her role as Marta von Trapp in the 1965 film, created the special face masks which use the same pattern of fabric worn by the children in the movie.

The fabric can be seen in the film when Julie Andrews' Maria makes clothing out of drapes for the children she was asked to take care of by Baron von Trapp (Christopher Plummer).

The photo features Kym Karath, Turner, Angela Cartwright, Duane Chase, and Nicholas Hammond, all donning the masks made seemingly of the same fabric Andrews used to make the drape-inspired clothing in the film.

Karath took to Twitter on Monday with the playful snap, writing, "Film Von Trapps wearing curtain masks. Our family wears masks, what about yours?"

Chairman Carr and Heather Menzies were missing from the reunion photo, having passed away in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Many are using the coronavirus pandemic as well as the upcoming presidential election as a reason to reunite their beloved casts and put forth a message of positivity - whether it be to wear a mask or to vote.

Recently, HBO Max released a trailer for an upcoming reunion of "The West Wing" cast members.

The special, which will feature cast members on stage for a special election episode, will benefit When We All Vote, a nonprofit organization that seeks to increase voter participation.
