CAROLINE SHEEN AND AMBER DAVIES TO STAR IN DOLLY PARTON’S 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL IN OCTOBER 2019

The producers of Dolly Parton’s 9 To 5 The Musical have announced that Caroline Sheen will star as Violet Newstead and Amber Davies will star as Judy Bernly when the smash hit musical plays Wales Millennium Centre in October 2019.

Caroline Sheen (Les Misérables; Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; Mary Poppins) played the role of Violet Newstead to rave reviews when the show first opened at the Savoy Theatre in February. Amber Davies is currently playing the role of Judy Bernly in the West End production of the show.

9 To 5 The Musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the women manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?

With writing from Patricia Resnick, music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, and inspired by the 20th Century Fox cult film, this hilarious new West End production is about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business!

9 To 5 the Musical will be at Wales Millennium Centre 29 October – 2 November with a new matinee date added on Wednesday 30 October.

NEW SHOW! A MONSTER CALLS ANNOUNCES DATES AT WALES MILLENNIUM CENTRE IN APRIL 2020

The writer of the novel, Patrick Ness, said: “The stage production of A Monster Calls has been one of the most incredible experiences of my life”, and director Sally Cookson said “Being given the opportunity to adapt Patrick Ness’ beautiful book was a career highlight and I am thrilled to be able to bring it to life once more”.

CAROLINE SHEEN AC AMBER DAVIES I SERENNU YN SIOE GERDD DOLLY PARTON 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL YM MIS HYDREF 2019

Mae cynhyrchwyr sioe gerdd Dolly Parton 9 to 5 The Musical wedi cyhoeddi y bydd Caroline Sheen yn serennu fel Violet Newstead ac Amber Davies yn serennu fel Judy Bernly pan fydd y sioe gerdd lwyddiannus yn dod i Ganolfan Mileniwm Cymru ym mis Hydref 2019.

Caroline Sheen (Les Misérables; Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; Mary Poppins) chwaraeodd ran Violet Newstead pan agorodd y cynhyrchiad am y tro cyntaf yn Theatr y Savoy ym mis Chwefror, a chafodd ganmoliaeth fawr yn y wasg am ei pherfformiad. Mae Amber Davies yn chwarae rhan Judy Bernly ar hyn o bryd yng nghynhyrchiad y West End o'r sioe. Graddiodd yn 2016 gyda Diploma mewn Theatr Gerdd o Academi Urdang.

Mae 9 To 5 The Musical yn adrodd stori Doralee, Violet a Judy – tair cydweithwraig a gaiff eu gwthio i ben eu tennyn gan eu bòs rhywiaethol a hunanbwysig. Maen nhw'n llunio cynllun i herwgipio a throi'r fantol yn erbyn eu goruchwyliwr ofnadwy, ond a fydd y menywod yn llwyddo i ddiwygio pethau yn eu swyddfa – neu a fydd pethau'n mynd o chwith pan fydd y Prif Weithredwr yn ymweld â nhw'n annisgwyl?

Gyda sgript gan Patricia Resnick, cerddoriaeth a geiriau gan Dolly Parton, ac ysbrydoliaeth gan ffilm gwlt 20th Century Fox, mae'r cynhyrchiad doniol newydd yma'n trafod dod at eich gilydd, sefyll ar eich traed a chymryd pethau i'ch dwylo eich hunan!

Bydd 9 To 5 the Musical yng Nghanolfan Mileniwm Cymru rhwng 29 Hydref a 2 Tachwedd, ac mae dangosiad prynhawn newydd wedi cael ei ychwanegu ddydd Mercher 30 Hydref.

SIOE NEWYDD! A MONSTER CALLS

Bydd sioe sy'n seiliedig ar lyfr a gafodd lawer o sylw yn y wasg ac sydd wedi gwerthu dros filiwn o gopïau, A Monster Calls gan Patrick Ness, yn cael ei pherfformio yng Nghanolfan Mileniwm Cymru ym mis Ebrill 2020. Pan gaiff Conor, bachgen tair ar ddeg mlwydd oed, ei ddeffro ganol nos gan rywbeth y tu allan i'w ffenest, bwystfil yn cerdded, mae'n rhaid i Conor ddysgu adrodd ei stori ei hunan, a wynebu ei ofnau gwaethaf.

Dyma gynhyrchiad gan yr Old Vic mewn cydweithrediad ag Old Vic Bryste. Enillodd A Monster Calls Wobr Olivier yng nghategori Goreuon Adloniant a'r Teulu yn 2019, ac mae'r "bwystfil o sioe" pum seren yma (The Times) yn cynnig cipolwg trawiadol ar gariad, bywyd a iachâd.

Yn rhan o daith A Monster Calls o gwmpas Prydain, bydd rhaglen allgymorth ac ymgysylltu gynhwysfawr yn cael ei darparu hefyd a fydd yn cynnwys trafodaethau, gweithdai, pecynnau addysg a digwyddiadau cyfranogol i drafod themâu eang y cynhyrchiad.

Meddai awdur y nofel, Patrick Ness, "Cynhyrchiad llwyfan A Monster Calls yw un o brofiadau mwyaf anhygoel fy mywyd", ac meddai'r gyfarwyddwraig Sally Cookson "Roedd cael cyfle i addasu llyfr hyfryd Patrick Ness yn uchafbwynt yn fy ngyrfa, ac rydw i wrth fy modd yn cael dod ag e'n fyw unwaith eto".

Bydd A Monster Calls yng Nghanolfan Mileniwm Cymru rhwng 28 Ebrill a 2 Mai 2020

A NIGHT AT THE MUSICALS

O Wicked i Les Misérables, o Chicago i Phantom of the Opera, mae A Night at the Musicals yn cynnwys rhestr o sêr, gyda chantorion gorau'r West End a Broadway yn perfformio fersiynau soffistigedig o'n hoff ddarnau o theatr gerdd.

Mewn noson wedi'i chuardu gan David Mahoney, mae'r perfformwyr yn cynnwys Kerry Ellis (We Will Rock You; Wicked; Oliver!; Les Misérables; Miss Saigon), Danielle Hope (Les Misérables; Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat; The Sound of Music; Grease), David Thaxton (Les Misérables; The Phantom of the Opera; Jesus Chris Superstar) a'r Cymro John Owen Jones (Tiger Bay the Musical; Les Miserables; Show Boat; The Phantom of the Opera).

Mewn noson o foethusrwydd digywilydd y byd adloniant, bydd y cast o sêr yma'n ymuno â Cherddorfa Novello, sef un o gerddorfeydd sioe gorau Prydain sy'n nodedig am ei hangerdd a'i charisma.

Bydd A Night at the Musicals yng Nghanolfan y Mileniwm ar 23 Mehefin 2019

Dydd Mawrth oedd diwrnod prysuraf yr wythnos, pan ddaeth tua 45,000 o eisteddfotwyr i'r Ganolfan, ac yn ystod yr wythnos rhoddodd gwirfoddolwyr y Ganolfan bron i 400 o oriau o'u hamser i groesawu ac i gynorthwyo ymwelwyr.

Roedd safon y cystadleuwyr a'r brwdfrydedd a ddangoswyd gan yr holl ymwelwyr yn ysbrydoliaeth, ac fel y ganolfan gelfyddydol Genedlaethol, roedd Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru yn falch o groesawu cystadleuwyr o bob rhan o Gymru a'r tu hwnt.

Meddai Dyfrig Davies, Cadeirydd Urdd Gobaith Cymru “Mae cael cyfle i berfformio ar lwyfan Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru yn brofiad bythgofiadwy i bobl ifanc, a bydd yn parhau i'w hysbrydoli am flynyddoedd i ddod.”

Cynhaliwyd Eisteddfod Genedlaethol yr Urdd Caerdydd a'r Fro yng Nghanolfan y Mileniwm rhwng 27 Mai a 1 Mehefin 2019

Bydd Robin Morgan yn agor, Jarlath Regan yn cloi, a Drew Taylor a Lorna Pritchard yn y canol – nid yw'r noson wych yma o chwerthin yn un i'w methu

27 Gorffennaf Bydd y cyflwynydd dwyieithog Connie Orff yn ôl gyda rhestr anhygoel o berfformwyr drag, gan gynnwys y fythol liwgar Pom Pom, y foethus Victoria Scone, a pherl Caerdydd, Jolene Dover.


Bydd Clybiau Swper Nos Sadwrn yn cael eu cynnal yng Nghanolfan Mileniwm Cymru bob nos Sadwrn tan fis Hydref. Noder y gall hyn newid.

Mae Charlie Price yn ei chael yn anodd cyflawni disgwyliadau ei dad, a gyda dyfodol ffatri'r teulu yn y fantol, mae cymorth yn cyrraedd ar ffurf annisgwyl ac anhygoel, Lola; perfformwraig hudolus sydd angen pâr newydd o stiletos.
Jerry Mitchell sy'n gyfrifol am y gwaith cyfarwyddo a choreograffi, sy'n enillydd dwy wobr Tony®, ac mae'r gerddoriaeth a'r geiriau gan Cyndi Lauper. Mae'r dathliad cerddorol gorfoleddus yma'n trafod y cyfeillgarwch sydd i'w gael, a'r gred y gallwch newid y byd wrth newid eich meddwl.
