A host will lead the audience through a vocal warm up and give you a comprehensive guide to the accompanying actions and use of the interactive fun pack. Sing-a-long-a attendees are encouraged to dress up as anything, and everything, represented in the classic film - the possibilities are as endless as the sunlight on a perfect alpine day.
