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 songs, the hair and the almighty big voices. 
Behind the smiles and feather boas the show tackles discrimination, acceptance and tolerance and the final performance from father/son (Tick & Adam) is overwhelmingly beautiful it will bring a tear to your eye.
The word amateur does not quite fit with this production, it's as good as any I've seen in the West End. Each cast member delivers with an enthusiasm some productions lack after touring for some time. The show is on until Saturday 29th April at the Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot. I doubt Port Talbot has ever experienced anything so fabulous and it may never do so again, so get a ticket and go have the time of your life (Ooops that's that other show) you'll love it.
Oh... and watch out for those Ping Pongs!!

5 Stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We would give six!

The Dreamboys Cardiff

The Dreamboys Cardiff

BIG IS BETTER... and I'm not just on about the buffet!

So I was sent on a mission to find the ultimate Hen Party Experience in Cardiff by Wyburn & Wayne. I've done cocktail making a thousand times before not just for hen parties but for birthdays & leaving parties so I decided to explore other possibilities. One thing occurred to me was that I'd never seen a strip show before so I booked myself and a few friends to see The Dreamboys at Pulse Cardiff.  On arrival we was met by the outrageous Opal Fruits who hosted a pre-show buffet upstairs at Pulse. Her quick wit & banter kept the giggles coming as we tucked into what was probably the biggest buffet I've ever seen, if the Dreamboys were anywhere near as big as these sausages on sticks we were in for a great night. Showtime and we were escorted to our seats downstairs of the club and the atmosphere was fantastic, club full of ladies ready for a great night. Our host Amber…

Bernard Poyser | A Great Cardiffian

Just like everyone that knew Bernard Poyser we was devastated to hear of his sudden passing this month. Bernard was a great supporter of any event we was involved in, along with his wife Sandra and daughter Mel he volunteered every year at The Great Roath Bake Off and attended every RoathRocks gig. It was only a month ago he attended Nathan's  exhibition in the city centre, causing chaos as he manoeuvred his mobility scooter in the small exhibition area. Bernie was the life and soul of the party, always telling jokes and always laughing. We will miss the laughs, we will miss the jokes and the singing, your tales of the swinging sixties often had us in shock but always hysterics. This month we honour our friend The Cardiff Times Cardiffian Of The Month.

Bernard married Sandra in 1967 and they had Melanie and Christian in the early 70s. They lived in Roath for 44 years. (He grew up in Llanishen).
Bernard was a motor mechanic by trade.  He started working at J Sherlock and Son, Roath…
