This quiz is a companion to the 'Music From The Movies Quiz', but this time it focuses entirely on musicals that have been made into movies.
Again, the idea is to print off the movie poster photos for the tables and download the Spotify playlist, of famous songs from those shows. Then ask members to match the song with the movie.
After this, they might like to rank their top 10 musical movies, as a group.
Take time to discuss favourite movies as you work through them and if one is a particular favourite play a couple more songs from it.
If you are playing this quiz via an online Zoom virtual CST Group, then you can watch the video clips and ask the questions.
Hope you like this one. Please do let me know.
As usual, films are arranged in chronological order.
