If you are arranging a tour in Swansea or the surrounding area, watch out for the popular musical ‘Cappuccino Girls’. Most shows in 2011 were a sell-out and it is now back and selling incredibly well. The theatre has been refurbished, the show re-cast and is now much more of a showbiz ‘song and dance’ experience whilst retaining its intimate charm. The new cast includes Claire Hammacott a stalwart of the West End Stage having starred in Les Mis and Phantom.
The shows runs from Wednesday to Sunday every evening up until 20th may but it is anticipated that it will be opening up for further weeks over the coming months.
They are working with a number of Swansea City Centre hotels to offer pre show meals and bed and breakfast packages and also recently added Ticketlineuk to its list of primary ticket agencies.
The show and project has also received a number of nominations in the Arts and Business Cymru Awards.
Cappuccino Girls is about three friends who meet every day at their local café. It’s billed as a mix between US hit programmes Friends and Sex and the City and is claiming to be the longest running British musical outside London’s West End. It has been written by Welsh composer and broadcaster Mal Pope, who has previously worked with Sir Elton John, Sir Cliff Richard and Aled Jones. The venue is the Wales Evening Post Theatre located on the ground floor of the Swansea Urban Village, the new £25 Million development in High Street.
