St George’s Hall hosts Sing-a-long-a Beauty and the Beast, the smash hit interactive screening of the newest Disney classic on 10th February 2018 as part of a national UK tour.
Following on from the phenomenon of Sing-a-long-a Frozen, this unique, interactive screening of another Disney favourite, with live host, free prop bag, fancy dress and lyrics on screen, rolls into town for (one/two* night/s) only.
You would have to have been abandoned on a desert Island for the last year not to know the story, which has enchanted and wowed audiences young and old since the film was released. Belle (Emma Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman, is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) in its castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the beast's hideous exterior. She soon recognizes the kind heart and soul of the true prince hidden on the inside.
The film is full of wonderful songs from “Be our Guest”, “Belle”, “Gaston” and not forgetting the “Beauty and The Beast”, making it an ideal chance to sing your heart out with hundreds of other people. It’s the formula that has made the Sing-a-long-a phenomenon so popular around the world.
Sing-a-long-a Beauty and the Beast is an irresistible celebration of this wonderful family film, full of tears, laughter and magic moments.
The Singalonga host starts with a live pre-show, warming up voices, teaching hand actions, and demonstrating the use of the now-famous Singalonga props bag for key moments during the film. This is followed by the hilarious
fancy dress competition, where those who have dressed up get the chance to show off their often outrageous creations. The film then starts and the audience takes over, raising the roof while singing along to very word.
Some fun facts about Disney’s Beauty and the Beast
The Sing-a-long-a story
Believe it or not, the worldwide phenomenon of Sing-a-long-a shows of popular films has been around since the 20th Century!
Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music opened at the Prince Charles Cinema in London in August 1999, making 2017 the 18th year. After an initial eight-show run, it soon sold out, while attracting huge media attention, and regular shows have been running ever since in London, around the UK and all around the world, including USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Other films to be developed in the same way by Singalonga Productions have included Grease, Dirty Dancing, Rocky Horror and Moulin Rouge.
Sing-a-long-a Frozen was a mega hit in 2015, and late 2017/2018 looks set to continue the phenomenon with Sing-a-long-a Beauty and the Beast.
