At YMCA Minsk they watched the legendary musical “The greatest showman”

We will not let the autumn blues overcome us! At the office of the Minsk branch, the guys know how to raise the mood, sing, dance or watch an amazingly lively movie.

So on Tuesday, August 28, the viewing of “The greatest showman” took place. “The greatest showman” is an American biographical drama-musical, directed by Michael Gracey, about the life of the American entrepreneur Phineas Taylor Barnum. Barnum organized one of the most popular travelling circuses in the 19th century. The main roles are played by Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya.

As the organizer of the movie evening, Yuliya Kamyak, said, they got the idea to watch this movie at a festival in Norway:

- During the day the guys prepared an evening show and rehearsed the famous song “This is me”. This song was nominated for an Oscar and has a deep meaning. I advise everyone to see this movie! When it was shown in cinemas in Minsk, everyone in the audience applauded at the end of the movie, which does not happen often.

- It is good and useful to watch musicals in English, says Alexander Trushnikov, chairman of the Minsk branch. - I really liked the movie. Easy vocabulary and real vocals.
