The Greatest Showman


A sing-along featuring one of the highest selling musicals of all time is coming to Weston, and Mercury readers have the chance of winning tickets to be a part of it.

The award-winning musical The Greatest Showman sing-along will be at The Blakehay Theatre, in Wadham Street, on July 31.

The event will showcase the song lyrics on a screen for all to get involved.

The musical featuring Zac Efron, Hugh Jackson and Zendaya, is inspired by the life of PT Barnum, a businessman who went from rags to riches as a result of his successful circus.

Barnum's show displayed various acts, such as a popular and successful appearance from a woman called Joyce Heth who was believed to be the oldest woman alive at 161 years old, to several other acts riddled with curiosities.

Despite his thriving business, Barnum was faced with some hardships as his wife, Charity urges him to get a proper job and he falls in love with Swedish singer Jenny Lind whom he manages.

The businessman finds a way to overcome each obstacle, he always perseveres.

The Greatest Showman, released in 2018, is a display of how Barnum overcame hurdles he was faced with in life along with 11 original songs which topped music charts around the world for weeks.

The Greatest Showman sing-along will be taking place at The Blakehay Theatre, in Wadham Street, on July 31 at 3 pm and 7:30 pm.
