The Greatest Showman Sing-Along!

hero.jpg

The Zoetic is bringing back a favourite! The Greatest Showman Sing-Along!  This Oscar-nominated, Golden Globe-winning musical is the beautiful, dazzling story of PT Barnum's circus beginnings with the catchiest music you can imagine, starring Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams.

Don't know the words? No worry, we'll have them onscreen.

Plus, we've got prop bags available to take your experience to the next level! Prop Bags include novelty items relevant to the film, edible treats and fun collectibles!

We will of course have our Signature Cocktails available and be sure to dress up for a Circus Costume Contest!

The story: 
Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?

THE STORY: Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a famous on-screen romantic pair. Lina, however, mistakes the on-screen romance for real love. Don has worked hard to get where he is today, with his former partner Cosmo. When Don and Lina's latest film is transformed into a musical, Don has the perfect voice for the songs. But Lina - well, even with the best efforts of a diction coach, they still decide to dub over her voice. Kathy Selden is brought in, an aspiring actress, and while she is working on the movie, Don falls in love with her. Will Kathy continue to "aspire", or will she get the break she deserves?
