My Favourite...Musicals

I absolutely LOVE musicals. Many of my favourite films are actually film versions of musicals, I'm not much of a singer or dancer myself but I love to watch them and maybe even attempt to sing/dance along! I have done some 'musical' acting in the past, as I did drama GCSE which included performing Blood Brothers as Mrs Lyons and Linda, I also took part in Grease as a chorus member for a local drama group which I loved doing! Here are my favourite musicals (not in any particular order).
  • Chicago - I love Catherine Zeta Jones in this, Cell Block Tango is my favourite song!
  • Blood Brothers - Watched this when Maureen Nolan played Mrs Johnstone it was VERY good, cried at the end!

My Programme
  • Mamma Mia - One of my favourite films and have seen this on stage too! The Winner Takes It All was fantastic live! 
Mamma Mia Musical Novello Theatre
I loved seeing Mamma Mia live - it's so funny!
  • Lion King - Seen this twice on stage and I adore the film, amazing musical to see for all ages - highly recommend this!
  • High School Musical - I love all of them, my (not so) guilty pleasure! 
  • Grease - I own the DVD and love it, it's such a timeless and feel-good film! 
  • Hairspray - Recently seen this on stage and I love the songs especially I Know Where I've Been

  • Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - I think the original film is better, I'd love to see it on stage!
Hope these give you some ideas if you'd like to see or watch a musical!
