The Cavern Beatles are widely regarded as being as close to the real thing as it’s possible to get. Be prepared to enjoy all the hits of the Fab Four in a 2 hour show that is completely live with breath-taking attention to detail, even extending to the use of exact reproduction of 1960’s instruments.

Port Talbot & District Operatic Society presents

Saturday 21st April at 3pm (by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd on behalf of Music Theatre International of New York) Book, music and lyrics by Meredith Willson Based on a story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey.

PH

An affectionate paean to Smalltown, USA of a bygone era, Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man” follows fast-talking travelling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organise - this despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall. Yn deyrnged serchus i drefi bach UDA yr oes a fu, mae “The Music Man”, gan Meredith Wilson yn dilyn gwerthwr teithiol, Harold Hill, wrth iddo dwyllo pobl River City gan eu hargyhoeddi i brynu offerynnau a gwisgoedd ar gyfer band bechgyn mae’n addo ei drefnu - er gwaethaf y ffaith nad yw’n gwybod y gwahaniaeth rhwng trombôn a chleff y trebl. Mae ei gynllun i ddianc o’r dref gyda’r arian yn cael ei rwystro pan mae’n cwympo mewn cariad â Marian, y llyfrgellydd, sy’n llwyddo i’w droi’n ddinesydd parchus erbyn diwedd y ddrama.

Tickets available from 01639 896228 Circle £10, Stalls £8, Concessions Available.

Ers ymddangos yng ngwisg ei hunan arall, y gwargochyn Otis Lee Crenshaw ym 1998, mae Rich, sydd wedi ennill sawl gwobr, wedi ei ganmol gan feirniaid ar draws y byd drwy berfformio i gynulleidfaoedd llawn bob blwyddyn yng ngwyl � ymylol Caeredin, drwy deithiau o’r DU lle gwerthwyd pob tocyn, ac mewn gwyliau comedi ym mhedwar ban y byd.
