Tonight, students can get a sneak peak at a dysfunctional a cappella group fueled by stars known for their voices and laugh-inducing performances.
At Pruis Hall, students will get to see musical comedy “Pitch Perfect” three weeks before its October 5th wide-release. The pre-screening event is co-sponsored by University Program Board and NBC-Universal and will be free for students. The doors open at 8 p.m., and the movie will begin at 9 p.m. Senior organizational communication studies major Jordan Habayeb, a member of UPB, said students are encouraged to arrive at Pruis early to secure a seat.
There will be a Pitch Perfect merchandise give-away, featuring headphones, sunglasses and prize packs at the showing. The University Singers will make an appearance and perform three songs throughout the film. Alan Alder, director of the University Singers, described the line-up as fun and energetic. He said that 22 singers and dancers, also with instruments such as the piano, bass and drums, will be present and that many of them have expressed excitement to watch the premier. Among them is dance captain of the University Singers, Joel Genth.
