In Full Swing Romance brews between a pink-tressed trapeze artist, played by Zendaya, and Zac Efron as P.T. Barnum’s dashing protege. The meet-cute, as Efron explains, instantly struck his character with “an inner joy.”












“The Greatest Showman” is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life. Inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum, “The Greatest Showman” tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. “The Greatest Showman” is directed by exciting new filmmaker, Michael Gracey, with songs by Academy Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“La La Land”) and starring Academy Award nominee Hugh Jackman. Jackman is joined by Zac Efron, Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya.

The circus for the film was cast, coordinated and choreographed by Montreal circus native, Mathieu Leopold (@aerial_leopold @aerialculture) He trained Zac Efron & Zendaya in lyra and straps to perform the duet for “Re-Write the Stars”
