Theatre Quiz Round 9: Movie musicals

Hira Desai

There’s nothing we love more than a screen-to-stage adaption and so this week’s theatre quiz is all about the movies that have inspired some of our fave musicals.

To make things extra tricky, you’ll have two answers to guess. Firstly, you will need to guess the movie from the title (we’ve removed the vowels) and for bonus points, guess which character said the memorable line or lyric.

As always, scroll to the bottom when you’re finished, check your answers and let us know how you did!

2. LN KNG – Out of the ashes of this tragedy, we shall rise to greet the dawning of a new era

6. HRSPRY – Smile Miss Crab Meat you’re on candid camera
