I love visiting the theatre, and quite often take the children to see various shows. Occasionally we get a babysitter and hubby and I go together to see something grown up which is nice. But I’ve never been with a group of friends before until this week when a great gang of South Wales blogger friends and I met up in Cardiff to see the Wedding Singer at The New Theatre. (Thank you to Cardiff Mummy Says for the photo!)
It was such a lovely evening out and really great to chat to my friends over a drink in the bar beforehand and talk about what we enjoyed about the show afterwards. I think we’ll definitely try to get together more to see something else, it was a really fun night out.
I’ve seen The Wedding Singer film once before, but so long ago that I can’t really remember it, so I didn’t have anything to compare this production to – I just prepared to enjoy it as a standalone show. And enjoy it I certainly did! It was full of fun and jokes from the start!
It has a great cast, with some faces that you will recognise from TV – Ruth Madoc, Ray Quinn and Roxanne Pallett. They all performed wonderfully – Ruth’s dancing was real highlight for me and Ray Quinn and Roxanne Pallett proved that they have excellent voices and brilliant stage presence. My absolute favourites though were Jon Robyns and Cassie Compton, their voices were absolutely amazing and they really drew me into the story and I felt for them through every twist and turn.
Although I wasn’t familiar with any of the songs, they were catchy and I found myself getting really into them. After the interval the show really kicked it up a gear, the singing was spectacular and the costumes and dancing mesmerised me at points. I found myself laughing away and clapping to the tunes. I know that the other ladies really enjoyed it too and those who were big fans of the film thought that it really did it justice which is good!
The Wedding Singer is on until Saturday 4th March and you can book tickets here. Grab a couple of friends and enjoy a night out like I did!
