Beauty & Beast Pre show!
Youngsters from the Christchurch and Bournemouth choir will perform songs from the Disney film Beauty and the Beast in anticipation of the visit of Sing-a-long-a Beauty and the Beast to Bournemouth’s Pavilion Theatre on Tuesday 24 October.
Following on from the phenomenon of Sing-a-long-a Frozen, the unique, interactive screening of another Disney favourite, with live host, free prop bag, fancy dress and lyrics on screen, rolls into Bournemouth for one show only on 24 October (2pm). Full details can be found at http://www.bournemouthpavilion.co.uk/whats-on/sing-a-long-a-beauty-and-the-beast-2017/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.
