Nuns in black leather boots, jeans and a cocktail dress all turned up for a special singalong (and dress-up) showing of The Sound of Music at The Atrium, North Walsham, on Saturday.
Cherry Lesnik as Maria, Janet Wardle, Lynda East, Lisa Hobbs and Sally Sizeland all as nuns, and Jenny Welsh as the Mother Superior, all put a new spin on their old habits.
All six work at the Manor Road schools in North Walsham.
The screening of the classic musical, celebrating its 50th birthday, was presented by Arts North Norfolk (ANN).
Joseph Ballard, director of the ANN charity, appeared in lederhosen and plumed hat as Rolf, the young postboy in the movie.

He helped get the audience in a singalong mood, performing Sixteen going on seventeen with Paige Miller, in the role of Liesl, and then Edelweiss in a duet with actress April Hughes.
The enthusiastic audience cheered and applauded all the movie-goers in fancy dress, with joint first-prize going to Simon Potter as a nun and Joe Walker illustrating the line from My Favourite Things, 'raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens'. Jenny Welsh as the Mother Superior was runner-up.
