‘Sing’ At Universal Studios Parks

“Sing” already has a strong presence in Universal Studios Japan. Characters from the film are featured in both the No Limit Parade and in “Sing on Tour,” a live show attraction situated in the park’s Illumination Theater.

‘Sing on Tour’ Live Show

The “Sing on Tour” show begins with a preshow, which has Buster Moon welcoming the audience to the opening night of the show. He claims there are some minor issues being dealt with and apologizes for the delay, but also calms guests by assuring them that Miss Crawly is on the job. Just as he says this, a circuit board blows a fuse. Buster then tells the camerawoman, Mizuki, to fill time by introducing herself while he leaves to help with the malfunction.

Mizuki stalls for time by meeting with several popular “Sing” characters while on a backstage “VIP” tour and even fixing some problems along the way. Several characters are concerned with their upcoming acts, and Mizuki works to be encouraging to everyone involved. Finally, the circuit board is fixed and Buster hops onto his crescent moon prop. He tells the audience to stand clear of the doors and enjoy the show.

Once this has concluded, guests may enter the theater for the live show, which is a mix of pre-recorded video, stage and lighting effects, and characters in costume dancing live to a variety of songs from the movie.

Universal has not made any announcement regarding this show making its way to the United States, but we will let you know as soon as any additional information on “Sing” or other Illumination intellectual properties becomes available.
