PROVO, UT: Do you "tweasure your wuv" of the Princess Bride? Do you watch it over and over, and over again? Can you quote all the famous lines of Inigo Montoya? Then prepare to die-of laughter! The Covey Center presents Princess Bride Participation, an inconceivably zany screening of Utah's most beloved movie, on Friday, November 6th at 7:30pm. General Admission tickets are $8, and all ages are welcome!
Let's do the fire swamp again! Akin to the participation style of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, we invite you to come dressed as your favorite Princess Bride character. We hope to see everyone represented, from Westley and Buttercup, all the way to Miracle Max and rats of unusual size! Throughout the film, audience members in character will be invited onstage to perform the lines and scenes along with the movie. The talented cast of ImprovBroadway will be onstage to coordinate audience participation, as we rescue the princess and brave the fire swamp together!
As the movie was described when it hit theaters 28 years ago, this is "not just your basic, average, every day, ordinary, run-of-the-mill, ho-hum fairy tale." This is Princess Bride Participation-where die-hard fans can come together to laugh, cry (of laughter), and quote their hearts out!
