TOP 3 Family-Friendly 
Film-to-Musical Adaptations

Hey, film geeks! One thing is for sure... We all love watching movies, don't we? That being said, have you ever thought of giving a chance to a musical theatre based on a movie? How about one you can see along with your kids? If not, then don't waste any more time, and go buy theatre tickets for the entire family! 

Much like movies, musical theatre is a special experience you'll never, that has its own unique charm. Therefore, you should let your kids to experience it too. If you struggle to choose the right musical theatre for you and your children to see, this post may come as a help, as below you can find listed three of the best family-friendly film-to-musical adaptations currently showing in London, UK, and around the world.

Not only this spectacular musical has been seen by 70 million viewers around the world, but it had won numerous awards, and rightfully so. If you and your kids liked the beloved 1994 animated feature from Disney, you'll love the musical as well. It's simple as that. It's enjoyable, highly-entertaining, and visually sumptuous, thanks to the gorgeous costuming and stunning scenery. The music and the routines are absolutely outstanding as well. "The Lion King" has all the ingredients for a top-notch musical theatre, and it's definitely that!



We all love Charlie and Willy Wonka, right? "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory The Musical" is yet another reason to see these characters, but this time in person! But it's not just that. This eye-candy production, re-envisioned by "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes, has one of the most colorful and imaginative settings you'll ever see, as well as one of the most adorable kids characters ever put on stage. Not to mention the engaging performances from everyone involved, the wicked script, and, of course, the great music. 


I bet you all remember the inspirational and heart-warming British drama of the same name about a boy from a small mining town in England who, after stumbling across a ballet class while on his way to a boxing lesson, realizes that his future lay not in the boxing ring but on stage as a dancer. Well, "Billy Elliot The Musical" is every bit as inspiring, feel-good, joyous, and unforgettable as the movie itself. The routines are extraordinary and nicely-choreographed, the acting is spot-on, and the singing will definitely cheer you up.

We went to the Disney on Ice show and they had a short part from the play. It's incredible George and I'm sure the play is brilliant too.
