The Rocky Horror Show | New Theatre Cardiff



Men in basques and ladies in frilly maids outfits, not your average Monday night in Cardiff and The New Theatre is home to The Rocky Horror Show for the next week so these are scenes your bound to witness  while walking through our capital.

The Rocky Horror Show has and always will be the most fabulous, sexy, fun packed romp that ever graced a theatre stage. This production is an absolute thrill with a great cast which delivers wit, song & sass as good as any other production I've seen of this cult classic.
Wonderful performances from all especially the narrator Philip Franks whose interaction with the audience kept the laughs coming. Frank N Furter is once again played by Liam Tamne and he is outstanding, the boy can sing dance and strut in the tallest heels I've ever seen.

Other great performances from Will Knights as Riff Raff and Dominic Anderson as Rocky whose body is worthy of a BAFTA if not his acting.
Rocky Horror is one of those shows you just want to jump on stage and be part of. At times it's like an adults pantomime packed with naughtiness and dark humour. What was Richard O'Brien thinking all those years ago when he wrote The Rocky Horror Picture Show, he could not have possibly predicted the success it was to have or the love and affection people would have for it decades later. As a fan of the film and the soundtrack it's satisfying to see such an incredible cast do justice to the stage show. So get a ticket, squeeze into a basque and go have best time ever, you'll love it!

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…

Oh Boy... it's so good! The Buddy Holly Story is still packing the theatres in after 25yrs and over 25,000 performances worldwide and it's clear to see why.

Two hours of massive hits including 'Peggy Sue' 'Oh Boy' & 'Rave On' to name a few are the soundtrack to the life of Buddy Holly and his meteoric rise to fame.  Buddy is at The New Theatre until Saturday 8th July and it's a must see, feel good show that will have you bopping in the aisles and singing along to all those classic hits.

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…
