I’m really excited that to kick off my new re-vamped theatre review blog I’ve been invited by Everyman Theatre in Cardiff to be one of their bloggers for the summer festival!
A lot of people in Cardiff will be familar with the Everyman theatre festival which happens every summer. For those who aren’t every year Everyman sets up home for an outdoor festival of theatre including Shakespeare, Musical Theatre, Comedy and a children’s show-meaning there’s something for everyone. This year the company are back in Sophia Gardens with four great shows:
Blackadder the Third follows on from last year’s hilarious Blackadder outing for the festival. For those whose Blackadder knowledge is sketchy, this installment sees Blackadder in Regency England as a Butler-with of course help from Baldrick at his side- at the court of Prince George.
Oh and if you’re after an additional giggle, and keen on helping a good cause Saturday 27th June 3.00pm & 8.00pm performances will be a Charity Gala Event in aid of Comic Relief and will feature a special guest from BBC Wales Today!
Finally there’s something for younger audiences-and involving young thespians, in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Designed for, and performed by younger audiences this is a Disney classic that’s great for the little theatre goers, and with morning and afternoon shows is a great family trip as well.
If all of those shows weren’t enough, this year the Festival also has two special ‘Sunday Nights at the Festival’ evenings. On the 28th June, Forte present One Night Only, an evening of songs from your favourite films and musicals and on 12th July, 57 Chevy line up with the ultimate 50s and 60s show.
I’ll be blogging about each of the main shows as the festival unfolds, and you can follow me, and the festival on twitter bellow.
