If your family loves musicals, join CAMP as we welcome Tony-award winning performer Ali Stroker on Sunday, May 16 at 11 a.m. ET for a reading and performance of her new book, The Chance to Fly!

Hamilton

Okay, if you haven't watched this one yet, it's time to get that popcorn started. Following the life of Alexander Hamilton and the founding fathers and women who shaped the United States, Hamilton is a musical of epic proportions! It received a record-breaking 11 Tony Awards and is considered to be one of the greatest musicals of all time. The filmed production features the original cast, including composer Lin-Manuel Miranda in the titular role. The musical is edited together from multiple recordings, featuring live 2016 Broadway performances and closed-set scenes. Stream on Disney+.

Annie

This Broadway musical-turned-movie favorite is centered around Annie — a spunky red-headed orphan who dreams of a better life outside the orphanage walls. But that's all just a dream — until her dream becomes a reality when a rich business tycoon takes her in. Sing along to the classics, including "It's A Hard-Knock Life," Tomorrow," and so many more on Amazon or Hulu.

The Greatest Showman

Inspired by the ambition and imagination of 19th-century entertainer P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman tells the story of a visionary who rises from nothing to create a spectacle that becomes a worldwide sensation. Starring Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zendaya, and Zac Efron, this all-star musical extravaganza is filled with hit songs including "This Is Me," "From Now On," and "The Greatest Show." Bring the show to your home on Amazon or Disney +.

Shrek the Musical

Everyone's favorite ogre is back! Shrek returns — along with his sidekick, Donkey — but this time, they're brought to life on stage. The Broadway adaptation follows the hilarious duo as they join forces once again to save the land from an evil lord and rescue a lovely princess from a terrible fate! Watch the Tony Award-winning Broadway production on Netflix.

Newsies

Meet Jack Kelly — a charismatic New York City newsboy who's got big ideas and big plans. When two publishing giants attempt to raise distribution prices, Jack and his fellow newsies take action! Join them in their fight for the little man on YouTube or on Disney+.

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella

Even if your family can recite the verses from the classic animated version of Cinderella by heart, this charming musical take on the familiar fairy tale is well worth a watch. Starring Brandy alongside the late, great Whitney Houston as the Fairy Godmother, it's a magical singalong with a huge heart. Stream it on Disney +.

Mary Poppins Returns

A follow-up to the 1964 classic sees Mary Poppins come back to life in Mary Poppins Returns starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda (yep, the star of Hamilton)! When Michael Banks suffers the loss of his wife, he seeks out the lovable nanny of his past, who works her magic to bring some joy and order to the lives of Michael's three kids. Reunite with everyone's favorite nanny on Amazon and Disney +
