Fans young and old turned out to pack the Ipswich venue to the rafters, with some taking the opportunity to dress up as some of their favourite characters.

More than 1,500 people turned up to the theatre to see the hit 2017 film, which was shown with the lyrics on the screen so that the audience could sing along.

The soundtrack to the film was one of the smash hits of 2018, with the album spending more weeks at the top of the charts than any other record this century.

And the song This Is Me even won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song.
