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.

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…

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 début was a great success, and we wish him the best of luc…
