It will be a five-year dream come true for Vashon Theatre owner Eileen Wolcott when the lights come down and the silver screen streams the theater’s first broadcast of The Metropolian Opera’s “Norma” (Bellini) at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 22.

But unlike the screenings of the Bolshoi Ballet and National Theatre plays, the Met requires streaming equipment to the tune of $4,500. Sunday’s premiere screening will be held as a fundraiser for the new satellite equipment, and Wolcott hopes to have a full house.

Doors will open at 3:15 p.m. with Randy Bruce playing jazz piano. Tickets are $20 and $18 for seniors, and are sold at the box office and vashontheatre.com.
