Director Geinor Styles said today: “We are over the moon to welcome back Kit Orton and this great company of talented actors/musicians alongside newcomers John Mclarnon; Deborah Thomas; Richard Corgan, Nicola Bryan and Tim Bonser to take this inspirational story of a true Welsh icon to audiences throughout the UK. This Rock and Roll musical laced with great Welsh humour and charm is guaranteed to have audiences up on their feet in celebration of this living legend’s story.”
Step back in time to the dance halls, working men’s clubs and recording studios of the ‘60s where the legend of Tom Jones was born: a Valleys boy with a heart-stopping voice who dreamed of making the big time, no matter what it took.
This inspirational story of self-belief and determination is performed live on stage by a phenomenal cast of actors and musicians, celebrating an ordinary man with an extraordinary talent who became a superstar on a world stage.
A Story Of Tom Jones is written by Mike James and directed by Geinor Styles, with musical arrangements by Ben Goddard, set design by Sean Crowley and sound design by Mike Beer.
