Everyone has seen at least one animation movie made by DreamWorks and besides falling in love with the characters, there are high chances you have also fallen in love with the themes of those movies. You have probably listened to those songs on YouTube many times now, but aren’t you curious to listen to them live? There’s an amazing concert scheduled for this Friday, December 8th at Motorpoint Arena Cardiff starting at 7.00 pm, so go and buy your DREAMWORKS ANIMATION IN CONCERT tickets and be there.
The reason why we love musicals so much is that they’re special (not to mention the hard work that lies behind the show): they combine theatre performance with music and the result is simply wonderful. Wicked is one musical to go to this Friday, December 8th. Although it presents the story of the Wicked Witch of the West, which may sound scary, it’s an amazing performance that both children and adults will love. Buy your WICKED tickets and be at Apollo Victoria Theatre, London, at 7.30 pm.
Not all musicals are about joy and happiness and the good things that happen in life. Some musicals are written in a sad manner, especially if they present the doomed love between an Asian woman and an American soldier. Miss Saigon is one of those musicals that will melt your heart. Watch the entire story of these two lovers this Friday, December 8th, at Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff, at 7.30 pm. Get your MISS SAIGON tickets from here.
Rob Brydon has been on the screen for the past few decades already.
