New Theatre round-up

A 'reckless reappraisal of the life of former Ugly Rumours front man and Britain’s first pop Prime Minister Tony Blair' is coming to the New Theatre, Cardiff.

Co-written by comedian Harry Hill, TONY! plays at the New Theatre from Tuesday 14 - Saturday 17 June.

It tells the story of how one man went from peace-loving, long-haired hippy and would-be pop star to warmongering multimillionaire in just a couple of decades.

Throw in a stellar cast of larger-than-life characters - Cherie Blair, Princess Diana, John Prescott, Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell, Osama bin Laden, George W Bush, Saddam Hussein and Gordon Brown - it’s described as 'Yes, Minister meets The Rocky Horror Show and a musical like no other'.

Information and tickets are available here.

◼️ Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage visits the New Theatre Tuesday 27 June to Saturday 1 July.

Michael O’Reilly and Kira Malou star as Johnny and Baby.

It's described as 'Exploding with heart-pounding music, breath-taking emotion and sensationally sexy dancing, this triumphant stage production, inspired by the wildly popular film, follows the iconic story of Baby and Johnny'.

Songs include Hungry Eyes, Hey! Baby, Do You Love Me? and (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life.

Information and tickets are available here.

◼️ Producers have announced the cast for the new musical, La Bamba! which visits the New Theatre Tuesday 10 - Saturday 14 October.

Joining Strictly Come Dancing champion Pasha Kovalev, will be Siva Kaneswaran from the band, The Wanted, as Mateo, and rising star Inês Fernandez as Sofia.

La Bamba! tells the story of how the power of music can transform a generation and celebrate a community.    

It combines latin, R&B, and timeless rock and pop to tell the ultimate feel-good story of a young girl with a big voice, big dreams, and an even bigger heart.

Information and tickets are available here.
