Grossing over $434 million worldwide and named the fifth highest grossing live action musical of all time, The Greatest Showman is back – this time outdoors and as a sing-along of epic proportions.
This is the first major event of its kind in Africa and happens on 5 and 6 April 2019 at the Piazza in Montecasino.
This is Me, The Greatest Show, Never Enough and all the Oscar™ nominated songs from this spectacular musical will be heard throughout Joburg North. “Ladies and gents, this is the moment you’ve waited for. This is where you want to be,” adds Andrew Ross, MD of Moonlit Movies.
Song lyrics will be displayed on screen
“Outdoor cinema and sing-along screenings have had incredible success internationally and we’re excited to be bringing this particular concept to South Africa. All the song lyrics will be displayed on screen, if you haven’t memorised them already, complete with a state-of-the-art concert sound system,” he says.
“It’s going to be a fantastic night out complete with live entertainment from Rubber Duc prior to the movie’s start and with great giveaways throughout the evening.”
Food trucks serving gourmet fare and a full bar including craft beer, gin, cocktails and champagne will be available for sale. No food or drinks will be allowed onto the premises as the Montecasino outdoor cinema area is a fully catered and licensed environment.
Lauren Small, Events Manager of Montecasino, says, “These Greatest Showman sing-along Outdoor Cinema Screenings offer the best of both worlds for Montecasino’s guests – great music and the chance to sing it out loud along with the crowd. At Montecasino, we are proud that We’ve Got It and we’re delighted that the first time this family-friendly, fun event will be held on African soil it will be on Montecasino’s Piazza.”
