Tiger Bay the Musical officially receives its world premiere tonight (15 November 2017) at Wales Millennium Centre, where its strictly limited season runs until 25 November 2017 at this iconic Cardiff venue. Check out these first-look production photos of the 39-strong cast, led by West End and Broadway star John Owen-Jones.
At the dawn of the 20th century in the flamboyant multi-ethnic community of Cardiff’s Butetown, extreme poverty meets supreme wealth, gangs of street children roam the docks, coal is King, and in the notorious public houses and alleyways of the city’s underworld, a revolution is brewing.
For this epic story of romance, revenge, heartbreak and hope, John Owen-Jones is joined in the 39-strong cast by: Hear’Say’s Noel Sullivan as harbour master, Séamus O’Rourke, Suzanne Packer as landlady Marisha, newcomer Vikki Bebb as valley girl Rowena and Dom Hartley-Harris as Themba, an African immigrant working the Cardiff docks to avenge his family
Tiger Bay the Musical is presented by Wales Millennium Centre in association with Cape Town Opera. It has book and lyrics by Michael Williams, an original score from award-winning Welsh composer Daf James and is directed by Melly Still.
