The Greatest Showmen

Chaplin & Jackman

7:30 Saturday, March 5, 2022
Drees Homes Auditorium— St. Henry District High School, Erlanger, KY

British comedic actor, writer, director, composer Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) became one of Hollywood’s biggest stars of the silent-film era. Chaplin’s trademark character “The Tramp” incorporated pantomime and quirky movements to create an iconic figure that appeared in most of his films from 1914-36. The KSO will screen his 1928 film The Circus, as it performs Chaplin’s own 1967 revised score (restored for live performance by Timothy Brock). Following an intermission, the KSO turns to Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of P.T. Barnum in the 2017 film — The Greatest Showman. Composers Benj Pasek & Justin Paul penned the film score and popular tunes “This Is It”, “From Now On” and others, for which the KSO and a local cast will present several selections in this old and new musical/theatrical double-bill.
