Stifyn Parri SHUT YOUR MOUTH at The Wales Millennium Centre


It's Saturday night, Wales are playing to a packed Principality Stadium and just a mile down the road Rhosllannerchrugogs most famous son has packed a full house at The Wales Millennium Centre. Venues which have both been very important in the career of Stifyn Parri. For it was he that orchestrated the Ryder Cup Concert that brought icons like Bassey and Zeta Jones to the Stadium to celebrate the prestigious golfing tournament and it was he that also put on the Millennium Centres opening Extravaganza.

I doubt many were surprised by the success of Stifyn Parri least of all himself. When he recalls stories from his childhood and his early performances it's clear the boy was meant to be seen and most certainly heard. 'Shut Your Mouth' is a hilarious and sometimes touching journey through the life of Stifyn Parri, filled with anecdotes from a man whose rubbed shoulders with everyone from Bonnie Tyler to The Prince Of Wales. Packed with gossip but told with fondness and love for for the people he's met along the way with the exception of  maybe Lempit Opik, he's not a fan!
It's an extraordinary insight into fame from a man who is the definition of the saying 'Jack Of All Trades' but it seems he's mastered them all. His story telling will cover everything from his illustrious career from West End star to playing Christopher Duncan in Brookside. I got the feeling he could have talked all night and nobody would have stopped him.

Jig-So by Lloyd Macey

23-year-old Lloyd Macey launched “Jig-So” as part of his final-year project working towards his BA Perfformio at University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Featuring familiar faces such as Boyd Clack, whose acting credits include “Twin Town” and “High Hopes”, and Shelley Rees-Owen, who is known for her role as Stacey in “Pobol y Cwm”, “Jig-So” was an incredibly impressive project for anyone, let alone a university student. It took place on Friday 12th May at Yr Hen Lyfrgell - despite the drama only lasting for 30 minutes, it was very heartwarming and engaging. It's a bilingual drama revolving around a family in the Valleys that has to deal with the struggle of cancer, which according to Lloyd, is a subject close to his heart. Amazing performances, staging and lighting - overall an excellent evening. Definitely keep an eye out for Lloyd's upcoming performances - he certainly is one to look out for! Lloyd's directorial d├ębut was a great success, and we wish him the best of luc…

A Different Brain

On Wednesday 3rd May, Spilt Milk Theatre joined forces with Cardiff Fringe Fest at The Gate Arts Centre to celebrate and raise awareness of Autism. All proceeds went to The National Autistic Society to aid in their continuous provision of specialist services. The first half of the evening consisted of spoken word, poetry and a music performance inspired by personal relationships with Autism. Almost all performers recited an original piece, making the evening more touching, heartfelt and realistic. The second half of the evening was dedicated to a scratch performance of ‘A Different Brain’, a new musical written and composed by Tobias Weatherburn, whose older brother suffers from Autism. ‘A Different Brain’ documents a series of events in the life of Rachel, a young woman with Autism. Despite only being a three-man cast, the musical was impressive, moving and engrossing. Combining a serious matter with light comedy worked really well, allowing all audiences to have more of an insight …
