Ooooo-KLAHOMA! Sing-along

Oh, what a beautiful evening it was at Bryn Mawr Film Institute on Wednesday, June 2. Over 125 enthusiastic patrons of all ages came out for BMFI's sing-along screening of OKLAHOMA!, the first of three sing-alongs this summer. Fans of the Rodgers and Hammerstein hit belted out such classic tunes as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’” and “People Will Say We’re in Love” as the film played on the big screen. Many even rustled up costumes in honor of the event!

Conestoga High School alums Julia Race and Emma Backe were excited
to make BMFI's sing-along a part of their summer.

Cowgirls at heart, Eileene Donnelly, Helene Snyder, and Rosemary Haggerty wore the hats and bandanas to prove it.

When asked about her lemon-bedecked hat, Pam Bentz (posing with Ted Douglas) responded, "There was a lack of citrus in Oklahoma!, and I'm here to help rectify that." 

Even BMFI President Juliet Goodfriend and the Chairman of the Board, Samuel R. Scott, wore their finest western duds to the sing-along!

If you think this sounds fun, check out the other musical classics that will get the sing-along treatment this summer at BMFI: The King and I shows on Wednesday, July 7 at 7:00pm, followed by Mary Poppins on Wednesday, August 4 at 7:00pm. Remember, patrons who come in costume receive a free small popcorn!
