Sing along to the Sound of Music at the Port

Here's a great way to exercise your vocal cords while celebrating Mother's Day

If you are looking for a fun way to celebrate Mothers’ Day The Sound of Music Sing-A-Long at The Port Theatre in Nanaimo promises to be a delightful afternoon.

The gleeful, huge sing-a-long with the most successful movie musical of all time is being held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 13.

Sing-a-Long Sound of Music is not just a chance to see the classic movie on the big screen in magnificent Technicolor and glorious cinemascope it’s a major audience participation event with subtitles for all the beloved songs.

The screening will include a famous fancy-dress competition in which everyone who arrives in costume is invited onto the stage to show off their fantastic tailoring skills.

Sing-a-long attendees 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.

Dressing up is not mandatory — but encouraged.

Besides, what were you going to do with those old curtains anyway?

A host will lead the audience through a vocal warm up and actions to use with the interactive fun pack which will be given to each member of the audience.
