Joseph And His Technicolor Dreamcoat


Go, Go, Go Joseph!

Hail Joseph! The Smash Hit Musical makes a triumphant return to the Wales Millennium Centre with X Factor winner Joe McElderry playing Joseph. The show is in its 36th year and is still playing to packed theatres worldwide. The Andrew Lloyd Webber spectacular tells the tale of Joseph, the twelfth and favourite son of Jacob, his brothers betrayal and his ultimate reunion with his family but in amongst all those family feuds you'll experience calypso, a little bit of Elvis and a number performed with a Parisian backdrop, I'm sure the Pharaoh's are spinning in their pyramids!
McElderry is superb as Joseph and with a great supporting cast the show is a winner. Narrator Lucy Kay delivers some powerhouse performances and huge respect for the twenty plus youngsters that make up the onstage choir. 
Jospeph is one of only a few musicals that appeals to all ages and still pulls in crowds from all generations. The audience had big smiles throughout and it would be impossible not to foot tap or clap along with the shows livelier numbers. 
Highlights include Close Every Door, Any Dream Will Do and the finale Joseph Megamix which is sure to get you up on your feet and clapping until the curtain falls.
Special shoutout to Lewis Asquith for sorting out this photo op and for being amazing throughout the show!

Joseph And His Technicolor Dreamcoat is at The Wales Millennium Centre until Saturday 13th May.

Emeli Sande with support Calum Scott

On friday 21st October 2017, Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena was entertained by one of the UK's best selling artists of the past decade, Emeli Sande, and her incredible support act, Britain's Got Talent star Calum Scott.

The arena was full and the atmosphere electric. Britain's Got Talent alumni Calum Scott opened the show, with high energy, crisp & powerful vocals serenading Cardiff with some of his own tracks from his up coming debut album. A personal highlight being his next single "You Are The Reason" which was both emotional and captivating, alongside a surprise cover to Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud. Of course the crowds went wild as he thanked them for and quote "one of the best gigs I've ever done!" And continued to belt out the hit that started his career "Dancing On My Own". Calum is without a doubt an artist to watch out for over the coming years - raw talent.

Emeli Sande... one woman, one voice (not too discredit her a…

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…

Crazy For You

Gershwin, Glamour & Glitz! Crazy For You is a Glorious Hit!
Cardiff went crazy for Crazy For You Tuesday night at The Wales Millennium Centre. Featuring probably the most talented ensemble ever to grace a stage, these guys act, sing, dance and if that ain't enough provide the music to the Gershwin brothers beloved score. 
It's clear why Tom Chambers stole the show and the prize on BBC Ones Strictly Come Dancing, like the energiser bunny on acid he dances with pace, grace and the stamina of an athlete while singing those big Gershwin numbers. He's charismatic and hugely entertaining as Bobby Child and there's great onstage chemistry between him and Charlotte Wakefield (Polly Baker). Big surprise of the night goes to Caroline Flack who's voice was beautiful, strong and convincing in the fabulous role of broadway vamp Irene Roth.  Crazy For You has it all, the big numbers, slickly choreographed routines and lots of laughs. The scene between Chambers and Neil Ditt …
