    Register by Sept. 24 at http://engagedpatrons.org/EventsExtended.cfm?SiteID=2335&EventID=472018&PK= or call 309-274-2719.

    In celebration of the 35th anniversary of The Princess Bride, you’re invited to bring your family and friends and join us as we share a timeless classic in a new way. You’ll rhyme with Fezzik, announce your vengeful intentions along with Inigo, express your love with Westley, and interrupt the story to make sure this isn’t a “kissing book.” We’ll have props and interactive scripts to make things even more entertaining.
    Fans are encouraged to dress as a character—we’ll crown the best-dressed.
    Have fun storming the castle! 

    Update:
    Registration for prop kits is closed, but anyone is welcome to come watch the movie and chime in with the bits that don’t require props (we’ll provide a script so you know what to do). You can also assemble and bring your own prop kit using the supply list below. And consider wearing a costume inspired by the movie: we’ll crown the best-dressed!

    bubble wrap
    instrument/noisemaker
