This hit show 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.The event is co-sponsored by the Student Activities Council and Ars Mundi Sodalicium (AMS), a student performing arts society.

As part of the event, audience members are encouraged to dress in costumes related to the movie and participate in a fancy-dress competition.

“I am anxious to get people to attend the event in costume to see how the excitement adds to the performance and audience experience,” says Jane Dietrick, an AMS associate member and part-time Performing Arts Center employee.

Dietrick believes the costumes and competition will add to the fun of this interactive movie experience.

“Dressing up is not required, but it is encouraged,” she adds.

Dietrick has already made several costumes for friends, including nun costumes and play clothes similar to that of the Von Trapp children. She is keeping her own costume a secret until the Sept. 5 event.
