REVIEW: An Evening of Movies and Musicals, St David’s Hall

After a sell out concert in April 2012 and part of the nationally acclaimed tour An Evening of Movies and Musicals returned to St David’s Hall on Saturday Night. 
With a slow start the highlights from the first half included the Siren Sisters performing Sisters and Swinging Rascals performing Hello Dolly. Peter Karrie also showed why he is a Welsh favourite with an outstanding version of Papa can you Hear me.
A last minute stand-in Jamie Owen was the perfect Host but he was under used and it would have been more interesting to learn more information about the performers and why they had chosen to perform the particular songs they were performing on the night.
The second half moved much quicker beginning once more with outstanding early performances from the Siren Sisters and Swinging Rascals.  They were quickly followed by the very talented Bridgend and Vale Stagecoach group performing Suddenly, Seymour from Little Shop of Horrors.  Peter Karrie wowed once again with This is the Moment from Jekyll & Hyde.
A surprise highlight of the evening was Nathan James one of the contestants from last year’s ITV show Superstar, he received a standing evation for his performance of Gethsemane from Jesus Christ Superstar. 
The show also included outstanding performances from John Owen Jones (whose joy to be on stage was catching) and Ruthie Henshall (especially performing All That Jazz) the evening was a resounding success.

REVIEW: Priscilla Queen of the Desert - Bristol Hippodrome

Priscilla Queen of the Desert follows the story of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus travelling through the Australian Outback searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they had ever dreamed of. 
The audience loved the show which is filled with feel good music such as Venus, Go West, Girls just Wanna have Fun and Boogie Wonderland but for me there were 2 best songs of the night, Venus for the awesome dance routine and costumes and True Colours for the beautiful harmonies by the lead actors – Richard Grieve, Jason Donovan and Graham Weaver.
Richard Grieve was outstanding as Bernadette giving the character some depth when the script did not and Ellie Leah had the audience in stitches with her portrayal of Shirley.  But staling the show tonight was the young boy who played Benji and his portrayal of a young boy who finds out his father was a drag queen and accepts his for it.
The set constantly changed throughout the show ranging from very bare with a rotating outline of a bus that made you feel a little dizzy to full-on showbiz glitterati with props galore and too many drag queens to count.  And I mustn’t forget to mention the awesome band under the supervision of Musical Director Richard Weeden which maintained the hyped up atmosphere all night.
If your looking for a good night out I would definitely recommend a visit to Bristol to see the show as Priscilla Queen of the Desert is at the Bristol Hippodrome until Saturday 27 April 2013.

Godspell Costumes

This is Seren in her costumes for Godspell with CentreStage Cymru.  The show was amazing  a real professional performance even though they were all amateurs.  Can't wait to watch their next show, Whistle Down the Wind in October.

This page is number 5 of 40 pages I intend to complete before my birthday in February 2014.
