Calling all Nuns, Goat herders, Baronesses, Captains, and governesses!
Get ready to wave your Edelweiss on August 10 as the hills of Commercial Drive are set to come alive with the Mother Superior of movie musicals — so be prepared to yodel, people. This is your chance to sing-a-long to the most iconic films of all time — complete with lyrics on the screen, the bouncing ball, prop bags, a costume contest and so much more… All ages are very welcome, costumes are highly encouraged (because costume contest!!!), and audience participation is absolutely essential!
Let’s start at the very beginning….
This event will be hosted by a few of our favourite friends from the Geekenders — whether you're 16 going on 17 (or a lil' younger, or a lot older!) you'll have a blast. They'll lead the audience through a vocal warm up and gives a comprehensive guide to the accompanying actions and use of the interactive funpack/prop bags. The costume parade has been known to send audiences into a frenzy! Sing-a-long-a attenders have dressed up as anything and everything represented in the classic film –- the possibilities are as endless as the sunlight on a perfect Alpine day.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC (Robert Wise, 1965 / 174 mins) A tuneful, heartwarming story, it is based on the real life story of the Von Trapp Family singers, one of the world's best-known concert groups in the era immediately preceding World War II. Julie Andrews plays the role of Maria, the tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey who becomes a governess in the home of a widowed naval captain with seven children, and brings a new love of life and music into the home.
