Come Alive at The Millennium Forum for ‘The Greatest Show – Songs From The Movies’
The Millennium Forum will be coming alive with the sound of music as they host an evening of musical movie magic, celebrating the music from hit film ‘The Greatest Showman’, as well as iconic movie musicals such as ‘Moulin Rouge’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘La La Land’ and TV Series ‘SMASH’. The show runs in The Millennium Forum, Derry/Londonderry on the 28 September, following its highly acclaimed sold out run in The Mac, Belfast.
Featuring hits ‘Come Alive’, ‘Never Enough’, ‘From Now On’ and of course, ‘The Greatest Show’, the company have pulled together their usual spectrum of talent, featuring a 50 strong company of players bringing some of the most famous movie and musical songs to the forum.
The show is unique for Belfast Operatic Company in that it is being produced in house, with direction by Gary Redpath, musical direction by Keith Pyper and Choreography from Kirsten Magee – all talent from within the company, who have both played roles on stage and in the day to day running of the company.
Director Gary Redpath commented;
“We held auditions in January, hot on the heels of our most recent production of ELF – we then were met with a huge amount of talent from within the company, and have been able to tailor the content of the show to meet this. The show features many well known hits, as well as a few hidden gems, and features 4 of the spectacular songs from ‘The Greatest Showman’. Audiences can expect to hear songs from all genres of musical theatre and film. With great reactions to the show in our previous run, audiences are in for a real treat”.
This live concert experience features a cast of local talent, including Alice Johnston, Emma Kelly, Patrick D’Arcy and Tim Reynolds. Filled with songs based around themes of love, the company pull together throughout the evening to explore the concepts and themes involved within the production.
