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.

Priscilla Queen Of The Desert at The Princess Royal Theatre Port Talbot

Big, Brash and Beautiful and that's just the bus!
The most fabulous bus in the world parks up at The Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot for five nights of outrageous fun.
We all know the story, three Drag Queens travelling across Australia in a bus called Priscilla. As musicals go this has it all, it's over the top, it's bursting with pop hits, it has enough comedy you'll be crying with laughter and enough sentiment to make you cry some more but for the majority of the show you'll be laughing and wishing you was on that stage singing along.  The Port Talbot & District Amateur Operatic Society deserve huge applause for this production, the enthusiasm and dedication to this performance was overwhelming. Huge performances from Carlton Gronow, Heflin Carwyn Rosser and Joe Crabbe who play the iconic roles of Tick, Felicia & Bernadette. Their onstage chemistry is fantastic and they provide most of the shows comedy. Everything about this production is BIG, the s…

Mamma Mia! | Wales Millennium Centre

This glorious ABBA musical is so much fun, your cheeks will ache from smiling for two hours. The cast are superb and genuinely look like they are having the time of their lives belting out those ABBA classics. Mamma Mia is now in its 18th year and shows no sign of slowing down, constantly playing to sell out crowds in the West End and on its UK tour. The reason for its success is down to the songs, when Benny and Bjorn penned those classic tunes decades ago little did they know those hits would go on to inspire a Musical and also a smash hit movie. Mamma Mia has earned its place alongside shows like Grease and The Sound Of Music it's a show you can never tire of.
The cast in this production are just incredible and as well as having pitch perfect vocals they perform some great comedy throughout the performance, like I said earlier your cheeks will ache from smiling. Sara Poyzer (Donna) delivers an outstanding rendition of 'The Winner Takes It All' and there's some great…
