Love singing but afraid to belt out your favorite tunes in public? Join the communal gospel of pop for a non-stop roller of glitter, glamour and Gaga.  

Community Karaoke Is The Way To Go

 

Admit it. We all like singing. If you point out to me a person who doesn’t like to sing at the top of their lungs to their favorite pop song, I’ll point out to you a person who is lying to themselves. It’s in our human nature to want to sing and act a fool — especially after having had a few drinks. Our ancestors caroled around an open fire and a starry night. We do it when the latest Katy Perry song comes on the radio while we’re stuck in traffic on 610.

But while we all enjoy singing (whether it be in the shower or at your favorite Montrose-area karaoke bar), there is that undeniably queasy feeling the majority of us get when asked to sing in public. It takes a lot of guts (or a lot of alcohol) to karaoke solo. So what’s a pop song-loving wannabe-American Idol to do when they want to sing in public but can’t convince their friends to join them on stage?

Well, that’s easy. Come to The Action Pack’s Pop Princess Sing-Along. The Action Pack has been building the best in interactive Alamo Drafthouse events for the last several years. From Quote-Alongs to Tough Guy Cinema, The Action Pack knows how to get an audience immersed in whatever they’re watching. The group’s Sing-Along events are no exception.

For August’s Pop Princess Sing-Along, they’ve chosen only the best in music videos from everybody’s favorite female pop stars. Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Madonna — all the greats are represented and sub-titled. As you watch the videos on the big screen, we’ll have the lyrics running along the bottom of the videos — allowing you to sing along and even get up and dance while you’re at it.

Don’t afraid about being embarrassed because the entire theater is there singing along with you. Our live host will be there to get the party started with some glow-in-the-dark jewelry and props and, once the music starts, will help you keep dancin’ until the world ends. This is the ultimate in communal poppy experience and the perfect way to get your pop princess on with a theater full of fellow music maniacs.

We have two screenings of the Pop Princess Sing-Along scheduled this month and you won’t want to miss out on the fun. The Action Pack is serious about you leaving the theater with a smile on your face and a sore set of vocal chords and you don’t want to disappoint them.

Wednesday, August 17 @ 7:30 PM — West Oaks

Thursday, August 25 @ 7:30 PM — Mason Park
