Whether you’re 16 going on 17 or you’re just someone who likes to climb every mountain and fjord every stream, you’ll want to head to the Tidemark Theatre Sat., Nov. 26 for a fun-filled fundraising evening of singing about your favourite things.
The Altrusa Club is sponsoring a new fundraiser, the Sing-Along Sound of Music, starting at 7 p.m. Nov. 26. The event will feature a screening of the classic Julie Andrews film musical, complete with subtitles so the whole audience can sing along.
The evening starts with a short vocal warm-up led by your host for the night, who will also take you through your complimentary fun pack containing various props to be used at strategic points throughout the show. People are encouraged to come in costume, but it isn’t mandatory. Groups are buying up blocks of tickets and making it a fun night out with family or friends. Tickets, at $20 per person, are selling fast, so hurry down to the Tidemark Theatre box office to get yours soon.
The Sing Along Sound of Music started in England in 1999 and has played to packed houses all over the world. If you love to sing, but are shy, this is your big chance to sing with a group of up to 400 people and it doesn’t matter if you can carry a tune or not! The Sing-Along Sound of Music is presented by the Altrusa Club of Campbell River – a group of 35 local women who support Family Literacy Day, provide bursaries for students, visit Strong Start programs and provide children with books, the Campbell River Hospital Foundation, the Salvation Army, the Campbell River Women’s Centre, the Campbell River Food Bank, Meals on Wheels and many other altruistic community organizations.
