03-03-19, 04:28 PM
Something a bit different for a change ;)

No use of Google, Bing or any other online search engines, no use of Wikipedia or any other online encyclopedias or dictionaries.
Friends, family and pets may help.

*** Because this quiz is about musicals in the cinema use of YouTube to overtly search for answers is frowned upon (just don't do it) though if you are a YouTube user and it serendipitously pops up a suggestion in the side bar or in a list of recommended videos that happens to be the answer to a question then that is okay (you got lucky) main thing is you have fun and let common sense prevail.

Please do NOT post answers/spoilers/hints etc.

Please pm (private message) me (OldMike) your answers.

Closing date TBA.

Calling last orders on the quiz as there's been so little activity on the patch of quizziness that I'll need a weed whacker to find it among all the nettles, dandelions, buttercups & daisies (I do talk some tripe).

One more week and the quiz master's gavel will fall (nerd)

19-10-19, 02:55 PM
The quiz is now closed.

The winner is Suzi with ten and a half points*

* Half a bonus point for the answer to 23. In which musical does Nurse Nellie Forbush appear? to which you replied "f*cked it we know" swearing always gains extra points though you nearly had the half point deducted because your answer to 28. Who led "The Rhythm of Life" sequence in "Sweet Charity"? to which you replied "Some big black bloke" well the guy in the answer was only five feet three and a half inches tall other than that you were spot on (giggle)

Thanks to Mira who was runner up :)

19-10-19, 03:10 PM
