"Sing-a-Long Sound of Music" etc.

Feb. 18

Buskirk-Chumley Theater, Bloomington

OK, there’s too much cinematic fun going on in Bloomington on Saturday. It starts at 10 a.m. with a screening of “The Muppet Movie” and reconvenes at 6 p.m. for “Sing-A-Long Sound of Music,” complete with pre-show vocal warm-ups and a costume contest. (The easiest costumes, of course, are a brown paper package tied up with string or a little girl in a pale pink coat, but I’m hoping there will be more creativity exercised by the savvy Hoosiers—Gretl’s hurt finger, perhaps.)

But that’s not all. The evening ends with a 10 p.m. screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” with prop bags available. Proceeds will allow schoolchildren to attend Cardinal Stage’s upcoming productions of “Go, Dog, Go!” and “Big River.” Details here.
