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.

The Port Theatre Society is encouraging ticket buyers to donate to The Haven Society by offering a $5 discount per ticket (adult priced tickets only) for every donation made to Haven Society at time of ticket purchase.
