Theatr na nÓg presents a TNN Production of 'Tom. A Story of Tom Jones: The Musical'
Theatre na nÓg are delighted to present the UK tour of the TNN production, “Tom. A Story of Tom Jones: The Musical”, which comes to Birmingham’s New Alexandra Theatre from Wednesday 1 to Saturday 4 June 2016.
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.
Featuring hits of the era including ‘Ghost Riders in the Sky’, ‘Spanish Harlem’ and ‘Lucille’, we track Tom’s climb to stardom. Ending with some of the hits that made him one of the most charismatic stars of the day: ‘It’s Not Unusual’, ‘Delilah’, ‘Green, Green Grass of Home’, ‘What’s New Pussycat’, and more.
“TOM. A STORY OF TOM JONES. THE MUSICAL” is Written by Mike James and Directed by Geinor Styles, with Musical Direction by Ben Goddard, Set Design by Sean Crowley and Sound Design by Mike Beer.
Director Geinor Styles said:
“Very occasionally an opportunity comes along that has the words ’perfect fit’ written all the way through it like a stick of rock. In this case it’s rock and roll, and the compelling story of the early days of this country’s most famous son – the living legend that is Sir Tom Jones.”
The development of this production has been supported by the Arts Council of Wales, the Welsh government, RCT, NPT Theatres and Wales Millennium Centre.
