The library is a fabulous resource for movies in a variety of genres: drama, comedy, adventure, science fiction, mystery, and musicals. Although musicals aren't as popular as they once were, they are still a delightful form of entertainment. Musicals lift your spirits and evoke pleasant memories.
Kansas City is fortunate to have many wonderful outlets for enjoying live theatre arts, such as musicals. There is something magical about attending a musical production, whether it's an open-air, or an indoor show. We can't always manage to attend a show--maybe it's the price of admission, or the availability of seating, or even the weather or the season.
Watching a favorite musical on DVD or VHS in the comfort of your home is so much more convenient than going out to the theatre, and it doesn't cost you anything to check out a video! How about planning a special musicals for the holiday season.
Anytime is a good time for classics such as: The Sound of Music , Singin' in the Rain, and The King and I. MCPL has lots of musicals from which to choose. Search our catalog, either by the name of the entertainer, or by the title of the movie. You can easily limit your search by choosing video recordings in either DVD or VHS. Let your home and your heart be filled with music!
"It is extraordinary how music sends one back into memories of the past~" George Sand
It's relaxing to watch a familiar movie musical.
Have you ever had a song from a musical get stuck in your head?
