A GUIDEPOST Report
Looking for an exciting summer activity? Check out one of Sing-Along’s many productions at the Teatro Figaro in Madrid.
Sing Along the way it should be
Upon arriving at the theater, the public enters through the “photocall” entrance where it can pose with the actors who will have been dressed already for their respective shows.

Also, they will be given a participation kit each, containing accessories that range from hats and scarves to interactive instruments such as phosphorescent light and water guns.
Each performance is preceded by a lively pre-show during which actors and entertainers teach the audience the choruses and the choreography and show them how to use the participation kit. Moreover, during the show, the actors will accompany the audience at key moments with the songs and dances that they’ve learned in the pre-show. Besides, the songs of each film are subtitled so that even a first-timer can sing and dance along.
The bar at the Teatro Figaro is open all throughout the show.
All these combine to make the show a summer music festival to remember!
A bit of history
Sing-Along was born in the Gay Film Festival of London in 1999, debuting in August of that year at the Prince Charles Cinema where SRO signs were hung in no time at all. Since then, shows of this format have been held with great success in many countries. In Spain, La Tropa Produce, a new production company that explores new ways of attracting viewers to cinemas, is the one that’s bringing Sing Along to Madrid.
