Magical Musicals @ Sunway Lagoon

I was given the chance to attend the Magical Musicals, A West End Production last month but didn't have the time to post in up 'cos as usual I took hundreds of pictures and needed some time to screen through them... :)



 Anyway, here's what happened... Upon arriving at Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, there was already a long line of people queing up... 


My sisters...


Random guy with a t-shirt..


Yay! Trams...  Not ours...

Squishy ride...


Arrived and walking in to the Amphitheatre...

I like the stage set-up... The famous Times Square, New York :)

 The Story 
(as told in the booklet)

The show opens in Times Square, New York - the very heart of the Broadway Theatre District. Auditions are being held for a new show. Six budding actors leave the auditions and are all in New York for One Night Only. 

Megan and Danny are a thirty-something couple from Seattle. Their relationship has reached a turning point and they are desperate the leave their hometown and work in the Big Apple.  Amber & Josh are a young couple very much in love. Although Amber is a 'dizzy' blonde, Josh worships her. Then we have Stephanie, an actress from Baltimore who finds herself attracted to the shy Ryan. 

Their story starts with an energised opening in Don't Stop Me Now... 


...as Stephanie explains she is from Baltimore and loves the musicals of the Sixties. 


When alone, Danny and Megan express their past love for each other in Tonight, ... 


...., joined by the others in a modern version of America


Josh and Amber tell the others they met whilst working on the musical Grease...


...giving their rendition of You're the One That I Want....    


... and Summer Nights.  


The others soon notice that Ryan likes Stephanie but she explains that she is Holding Out For A Hero in her life.  


*got extra picture 'cos how often got sexy topless men falling at girls feet*


Uptight, Ryan decided to loosen up with Footloose.  


After which, Megan and Danny feel wicked and sing As Long As You're Mine...  


...and Defying Gravity


The girls then tease the boys with their version of Shakalaka Baby...  


...before everybody joins in for an explosive performance of  Jai Ho


*really explosive cos got fire-blowers and fire-dancers*


* and Punjabi drummers*


Act II opens five years later and the girls are starring together in Times Square as Dreamgirls.  




Megan and Danny are celebrating their honeymoon and as they are waiting for the girls, they boys reminisce about when they all met five years earlier. Danny and Josh can't believe that Ryan hasn't proposed to Amber after all this time. He says they have both been busy working apart. They all leave for the Night Club as Danny sings Go The Distance.  


Once at the club, the boys lead in Night Fever ...


...whilst Stephanie taunts Ryan with If I Can't Have You.  


Josh urges Ryan to 'pop the question' but Ryan loses his nerve and leaves Stephanie to her own thoughts in Reflections.  


When they all return, Amber asks the DJ to play The Elephant Love Medley, which gives Ryan the courage to ask Stephanie to marry him. 


The concert finale sees all six stars singing their way through a medley of Glee, ...  




..., with a special finale from We Will Rock You...  


... to Mamma Mia!



*I think this was when they sang the 'Money, Money, Money' song* 




The End.
