There’s always an exciting line-up of shows at Swansea Grand Theatre and The Brangwyn Hall and the winter season is no exception with something for the whole family to enjoy.
Fancy a trip to Neverland? Swansea Grand Theatre’s swashbuckling panto, Peter Pan, will put the wind in your sails and take you there. Stirring up trouble on the high seas is Tristan Gemmill, (Corrie’s chef Robert Preston), who swaps his spoon for a sword to star as the villainous Captain Hook.
Hook’s side kick, Starkey, is Britain’s Got Talent star, Ricky K. who’ll have the whole family in stitches with his zany comedy capers and Swansea Grand stalwart, Kev Johns, returns with his trademark Welsh wit and outrageous costumes in the role of Mrs Smee. Peter Pan runs from 13 December to 12 January, and with an amazing opening weekend offer, book your tickets today before they get snapped up.
If panto doesn’t float your boat, then there’s plenty of other outstanding shows to choose from. For music lovers there’s The Bowie Collective on 30 Nov, The Elvis Years on 23 January, Boyzlife, a supergroup comprising of Keith Duffy and Brian McFadden, ex-members of Boyzone and Westlife, on 8 February and the legendary Showaddywaddy on 22 February and many more.
