You will get the opportunity to watch The Greatest Showman on the big screen but with a twist - the lyrics will be displayed on screen and you’ll be encouraged to join in, as loudly as you like.

Alongside the screening of the film, there will also be a live host who will teach everyone in the audience a unique set of dance moves. They’ll also show you how to use your interactive prop bags as well.

You’ll practice your “cheers, your boos and even a few wolf whistles” according to the event page.

Fancy dress is also highly encouraged, and full audience participation is essential.

Where and when is it on?

The Edinburgh Playhouse originally began its life as a huge, single screen cinema in 1929 before reopening in 1980 as a fully functioning theatre.

Returning to its cinematic roots with this tour, The Edinburgh Playhouse will host the sing-along event.

The event takes place on Friday 6 September and begins at 7pm.

The show runs for 2 hours 50 minutes, and this includes an interval.

The event website recommends an age guidance of five years and up.
