Capitol Theatre opens the season with a sing-along

Nelson's Capitol Theater is opening its 25th anniversary season 2012-2013 with The Sound Of Music sing-along.

The Capitol Theater is opening its 25th anniversary season 2012-2013 with The Sound Of Music sing-along.

Calling all nuns, goat herders and baronesses. Get ready to yodel. This is your chance to sing-along to the most successful movie musical of all time. This is one of the funniest, most liberating nights out you will have for a long time.

Sing-along-a Sound Of Music is not just a chance to see the classic movie on the big screen in magnificent technicolour and glorious cinemascope, it’s a major audience participation event with subtitles for the songs.

Having started in the UK back in 1999, the sing-along Sound Of Music show has now become a worldwide hit, playing to packed houses across the globe with over 10,000 performances in nine different countries. It’s even filled the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles – three times!

For those of you not yet converted, sing-along Sound Of Music is a screening of the classic Julie Andrews film musical in glorious, full-screen technicolour, complete with subtitles so that the whole audience can sing-along.

The fun-filled show starts with a vocal warm-up led by the evening’s host, Mary Defeo, who also takes the audience through their complimentary ‘magic moments pack’, containing various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film.

Then of course there is the famous fancy-dress competition in which everyone who has come in costume is invited onto the stage to show off his or her fantastic tailoring skills.

So get those vocal chords warmed up, cut up those chintz curtains and hurry down for another dose of the international smash-hit sensation. It’s the perfect night out for hen parties, birthday celebrations, office outings, family trips, or anyone who has ever shed a tear during ‘Edelweiss’! Book early because this show sells out.

The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $15 for a reserved seat, $12 for season ticket holders and$12 for students. For more information contact the Capitol Theatre or visit capitoltheatre.bc.ca
