Imogen has always been a bit of a diva. She’s a very self confident little girl who often tells me that she was born for the stage. This September, as an addition to her ballet classes, she starts musical theatre on recommendation from her dance school. She’s really looking forward to it and can’t wait to star in her first production.
Imogen has always loved a musical and she can often be found in her room watching her favourites and choreographing her brother unsuccessfully! During the rainy days of the Summer holidays she’s been watching quite a few on Netflix. One of the ones she’s watched over and over and over again is All Stars.
All Stars is a UK made film starring Theo Stevenson (from Horrid Henry: The Movie), who Imogen does have a little bit of a crush on. The story tells the story of two children who bring together a group of misfits and put on an ambitious dance show in order to save their youth centre from demolition. There’s an awful lot of music and great dancing as well as a story line that kept Imogen gripped until the end. A lovely heart warming family film that we’d highly recommend.
Other musical titles that Imogen has added to her “ones to watch” list are Pop Star and Standing Ovation.
The gaiety of Imogen’s viewing choices has certainly had an influence on my own evening viewing with Dream Girls scheduled for this evening, to accompany a pile of school uniform labelling and labelling.
There are plenty of other musicals on Netflix, perfect for a bit of light-hearted, dance around your living room type entertainment including the classic Hello Dolly staring the legend Barbra Streisand and Sister Act 2 with Whoopie Goldburg.
