Family musical Tickledom has been revived for a tour of South Wales, and Rhiwbina Info is offering a family ticket for the show at the Wales Millennium Centre.
Written by Matthew Brind and John Manders, the show opened in Aberystwyth last week, before visiting Pontypridd, Port Talbot, Cwmbran, Barry, and finishing in the Donald Gordon Theatre at Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff.
To be in with a chance of winning a family ticket (for four people, at least one of whom must be under 16), just go to our Facebook page, and ‘like’ and share the competition post before noon on Thursday 27 July. The winner and their family will get to the see the show on Sunday July 30 at 4pm.
Tickledom first toured Wales in 2002 to acclaim, and its creators have been under pressure to revive it ever since. This new version, which has been updated and adapted, is already in demand with tickets at several performances already sold-out.
The family-friendly story of the Kingdom of Tickledom, with its host of plant and flower characters, will be brought to life by a hand-picked cast of leading performers.
Emma Warren plays Marigold, fresh from her role in the world tour of Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance. Basil is played by Callum Howells who featured alongside Gary Barlow on the BBC programme Let it Shine and has since been in the West End in Menier Chocolate Factory’s production of She Loves You.
Dashing Prince Tarragon is played by David Haydn, known for his role in the UK tour of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, with Princess Violet played by delightful local performer Laura Richards, and the show’s nemesis Fluella the Ice Witch, powerfully portrayed by Amy Coombes who originated the role in 2002.
Completing the cast at a select number of performances is BBC Radio Wales’ popular late night presenter Chris Needs MBE, who plays the comically cantankerous Snapdragon.
Producers have set prices from £5 to ensure Tickledom – the Family Musical is accessible to as many people as possible across the tour. Writer John Manders said: “Having £5 tickets means more people can come and share the happiness and laughter in the world of Tickledom plus audiences who saw previous versions will be delighted to hear some new numbers – performed by an immensely talented company”.
The tour of Tickledom – the Family Musical is supported by Dowds Shipping Limited and D Maid Solicitors.
