Youngsters will enjoy a sing-a-long viewing of the Greatest Showman.

A line-up of hit musicals, ballet and drama will be at the heart of His Majesty’s Theatre’s (HMT) new season.

Madagascar the Musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and a new adaptation if the Oscar-winning film Little Miss Sunshine will be among the treats.

Dramas such as To Kill A Mockingbird, The Lady Vanishes and Lost at Sea –  the latter of which was written by north-east writer Morna Young  – will also be showcased.

A sneak peak into the stage adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic To Kill a Mockingbird.

Aberdeen Performing Arts Chief Executive, Jane Spiers, said: “We are proud to present such a colourful, interesting and broad range of work to our audiences in the North-east.

“I’m pleased to be bringing Lost at Sea, the story of a North east fishing family to HMT , which I’m sure will resonate with our audiences.”

A production of Joseph will visit Aberdeen

Younger theatre fans also be spoilt for choice, with the chance to see Zog, written by Gruffalo-author Julia Donaldson, a sing-a-long viewing of the Greatest Showman and Scottish Ballet’s Wee Hansel and Gretel.

Other productions by Scottish Ballet, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year, include an adaptation of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and a new production of The Snow Queen.

Ending the new season is Cinderella, which has been confirmed as the official HMT pantomime, running between November 2019 and January 2020.

Tickets for all shows are on sale to APA Friends and will go on general sale on December 4.
