CHICAGO (CBS/AP) The hills are alive again, this time on the small screen.

Harpo Productions says the entire cast of the 1965 Academy Award-winning movie musical "The Sound of Music" will appear on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" on Oct. 29. It will be the first time in 45 years the whole cast has been together.

Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer will be in attendance, 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), according to Entertainment Weekly.

Andrews had non-cancerous throat nodules removed in 1997, an operation that initially left her unable to sing. She will not sing on the TV program.

Plummer will talk about his relationship with the film over the decades.

The show will include a performance from the singing group The von Trapp Children, which features members of the real von Trapp family.

The musical's score includes such classics as "My Favorite Things" and "Do Re Mi."
