MOUNT CARROLL – Timber Lake Playhouse has announced the sing-along “Sound of Music” event and a one-night-only screening of the classic Mel Brooks film “Young Frankenstein.”

The 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 props.

There is a costume competition, in which everyone who has come in costume is invited onto the stage to show off their tailoring skills.
