Mount Carroll, IL--Timber Lake Playhouse announces the Sing-a-long ‘Sound of Music’ Event and a one night only screening of the classic Mel Brooks film ‘Young Frankenstein.’ Let’s start at the very beginning (a very good place to start)...

For those not yet converted, Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music is a screening of the classic Julie Andrews film musical in glorious, full-screen technicolor, complete with subtitles so that the whole audience can sing along! TLP will host two screenings, Saturday, May 3 at 6:30 pm and Sunday, May 4 at 2:00 pm.

The fun-filled show starts with a vocal warm-up led by the evening’s host, who also takes the audience through their complimentary ‘magic moments fun pack’, containing various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film. Tickets to this interactive event are $15 and include the fun pack of props.

Then of course there is the famous costume competition in which everyone who has come in costume is invited onto the stage to show off their fantastic tailoring skills. And the more venues we play, the more elaborate the costumes get. Previous entries have included:

  • Nuns of both genders (including a pregnant nun!)

  • Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

  • A lonely Goatherd!

  • A group of twenty people were joined together and completely covered in fake turf (the alps!)

  • A man in a gold lycra catsuit (Ray a Drop of Golden Sun!)

  • A man dressed in work overalls and a tool belt (Christopher Plumber)

  • A gazebo!!

  • A carburetor

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.

On Friday, May 2, TLP will screen the acclaimed film comedy ‘Young Frankenstein.’ The film begins at 7:00 pm and tickets are $10 each. Seats are reserved, so advance purchase is recommended. The film stars Gene Wilder, Cloris Leachman and Madeline Kahn in unforgettable (and endlessly quotable) performances. The stage musical adaptation, also by Mel Brooks, will be presented in July as part of TLP’s 53rd summer season!
