Sing-a-long-a Evenings Coming Up at The Alexandra Theatre

Warm up your vocal chords as Sing-a-long-a Encanto and Sing-a-long-a The Greatest Showman come to The Alexandra Birmingham, to brighten up the long, dark evenings

Sing-a-long-a Encanto arrives at The Alexandra Birmingham on Saturday 22 October 2022

Sing-a-long-a Encanto, a unique interactive sing-a-long-a show featuring the smash-hit Disney musical film Encanto

Gather la Familia! It’s time to celebrate something truly magical.

The smash hit film musical of 2021, all about the adventures of the Family Madigral, will have the song lyrics on screen, so that everyone can join in singing. 

Cheer on Mirabel as she tries to save the magic surrounding her Encanto.  Sing your heart out with our live host, who will teach you some dance moves, help you create some magic and show you how to use your free props bag.

Those of you not familiar with Encanto, it is a tale of The Madrigals, an extraordinary family who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a charmed place called the Encanto. 

The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift — every child except Mirabel. However, she soon may be the Madrigals last hope when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is now in danger.

It couldn’t be more fun to join in! The first rule of Sing-a-long-a is THERE ARE NO RULES! Fancy dress is encouraged and full audience participation is essential.  You – the audience – are the stars.

And remember, we don’t talk about Bruno, No No No!

Please note this is a screening of the movie not a live stage show. 

Gather your family together as we take you on a magical interactive journey where we give you full permission to dance, cheer and sing your heart out.

“Sing-a-long-a Encanto is much more than ‘just a film’”, says Freedman. ”It’s an event, an interactive experience and so much more fun than watching at home!

Every performance starts with a Sing-a-long-a host who warms up the audience, trains them how to interact with the film using the contents of their free props bag and heckle in all the right places. For ages 4 years and upwards and running time: 2 hours 30 minutes including 20 mins interval.

Sing-a-long-a The Greatest Showman arrives at The Alexandra Birmingham on Sunday 15 January 2023

After the success of this fabulous musical movie, charting the success of P.T. Barnum and his journey into the world of show business, come and see the smash hit film musical that everyone can’t stop singing – The Greatest Showman!

Look out, ‘cause here it comes….

Cheer on Hugh Jackman, lust after Zac Efron and hiss Rebecca Ferguson (…or maybe not) as you experience The Greatest Showman in the greatest way possible – with lyrics on the screen so you can join in as loud as you want.

And it’s marching on to the beat we drum…

A totally different way to enjoy this new smash hit movie – if you’ve not experienced a Sing-a-long-a before – now is the time.

Please note this is a screening of the movie not a live stage show.

Dress up in your best top hat and tails, add a beard if you fancy, and away we go on the best night you can have with your friends and we give you full permission to sing your heart out.

“Sing-a-long-a The Greatest Showman is much more than ‘just a film’”, says Freedman. ”It’s an event, an interactive experience and the most fun you can have with your clothes on.” 

Every performance starts with a Sing-a-long-a host who warms up the audience, trains them how to interact with the movie using the contents of their free props bag and heckle in all the right places as well as judge the fancy dress competition. Running time: 2 hours 50 minutes including 20 mins interval.

The Birth of Sing-a-long-a

The unique, interactive entertainment form known as Sing-a-long-a, meanwhile, was allegedly born in an old people’s home in Inverness. The nurses wanted to involve the residents in an interactive group therapy. They decided to screen Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and gave out song sheets so that everyone could sing-a-long. 

The idea was then developed for the Sound of Music for London’s Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in 1999, before opening at the Prince Charles Cinema in August of that year. After an initial eight-show run soon sold out, while attracting huge media attention, and regular shows has been running ever since not only in London but all around the world. 

Singalonga Productions is delighted to add Sing-a-Long-a Encanto and Sing-a-long-a The Greatest Showman to their portfolio of shows such as Sing-a-long-a FrozenSing-a-long-a GREASESing-a-long-a Sound of Music and Sing-a-long-a Rocky Horror Show.
