Synopsis

When 19th century aspiring entrepreneur P.T. Barnum loses his job after the company’s bankruptcy, he decides to finally try to fulfil his dreams and a promise he gave to his family by reinventing himself as ‘The Greatest Showman’. This involves putting together a circus the likes of which had never been seen before. Populating such a bold project requires a diverse, eclectic list of astounding performers unafraid to stand-out, and who refuse to be like everybody else. The results lay the foundations for what we now think of as show business. Based on a true story, this is a lavish and original musical full of spectacle and infectious enthusiasm for being true to yourself and embracing who you are.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
