Alongside a packed programme of acclaimed theatre productions and family treats some of the biggest names in comedy are visiting Swansea this Spring.
Over the coming months the Swansea Grand Theatre stage will play host to Ed Byrne 16+ (7 March), Tim Vine 12+ (17 March), Russell Brand 16+ (20 March) and the surreally brilliant Bill Bailey (8 – 10 May) to name just a few.
But the great nights out don’t stop there. If you’re a fan of Elvis then you’ll love All Shook Up (15 – 17 February), the new musical comedy set in 50s America, based on the songs of the king of rock and roll.
Another season highlight comes from The Russian State Ballet of Siberia as they present a three-day run of magical performances with a spellbinding live orchestra from 26 – 28 February.
In the run up to Easter families are in for a treat as the world-famous Teletubbies come to town on 17 and 18 March with their first ever live show. Join Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po as they explore the magical world of Teletubbieland. Or, Disney fans can see their favourite classic films brought to life in A Spoonful of Sherman (5 – 7 April), a night celebrating the fascinating story and musical work of the Sherman family who wrote the songs from The Jungle Book, Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang among others.
Following its smash hit run in London, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita takes the stage between 10 – 14 April, shortly followed by a thrilling new piece of theatre from award-winning producers Selladoor, taking on the most iconic story of American literature – Of Mice And Men (17 – 21 April).
Further down the line, but well worth advance booking is the acclaimed, high energy, high kicking and gloriously glamorous Watermill Theatre production of Crazy For You, which will be visiting Swansea with its star-studded cast on 1 – 5 May and one for the little ones, David Walliams’ Awful Auntie from 14 – 17 November.
