The most fabulous bus in the world parks up at The Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot for five nights of outrageous fun.
We all know the story, three Drag Queens travelling across Australia in a bus called Priscilla. As musicals go this has it all, it's over the top, it's bursting with pop hits, it has enough comedy you'll be crying with laughter and enough sentiment to make you cry some more but for the majority of the show you'll be laughing and wishing you was on that stage singing along.
The Port Talbot & District Amateur Operatic Society deserve huge applause for this production, the enthusiasm and dedication to this performance was overwhelming. Huge performances from Carlton Gronow, Heflin Carwyn Rosser and Joe Crabbe who play the iconic roles of Tick, Felicia & Bernadette. Their onstage chemistry is fantastic and they provide most of the shows comedy. Everything about this production is BIG, the songs, the hair and the almighty big voices.
Behind the smiles and feather boas the show tackles discrimination, acceptance and tolerance and the final performance from father/son (Tick & Adam) is overwhelmingly beautiful it will bring a tear to your eye.
The word amateur does not quite fit with this production, it's as good as any I've seen in the West End. Each cast member delivers with an enthusiasm some productions lack after touring for some time. The show is on until Saturday 29th April at the Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot. I doubt Port Talbot has ever experienced anything so fabulous and it may never do so again, so get a ticket and go have the time of your life (Ooops that's that other show) you'll love it.
Oh... and watch out for those Ping Pongs!!
5 Stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
