Starlight Express at Bristol Hippodrome

On Wednesday night I had the opportunity to see Starlight Express at the Bristol Hippodrome, the only catch was that I had to write a review, here's the review:

Starlight Express is a rock opera that depicts the story that all boys dream of - train sets coming to life. We follow the chances of several of the trains as they move through the heats to the finals of the world championship. 

The whole show doesn’t stop from the opening scene to the finale helped by the fact that everyone on stage is on roller skates.  The vibrant music and costumes with amazing lighting transformed the bare and simple set from a high octane nightclub in some scenes to a desolate wasteland in others. One thing I would ask for is more tricks and flips from the skating professional that performed occasionally.

Kristofer Harding was magnificent as Rusty conveying a whole range of emotions throughout the show, as well as Mykal Rand as Electra who seemed to light up the stage whenever he came on.

My favourite song of the evening was Freight with all the trucks singing in beautiful harmony (must be the Welsh Male Voice Choir fan in me) followed closely by Starlight Express which was beautifully sung by Kristofer Harding with raw emotion. U.N.C.O.U.P.L.E.D. sung by Ruthie Stephens as Dinah was another comedic highlight as well as One Rock ‘n’ Roll too many (sung by Greaseball, Electra and Red Caboose).

If you get a chance go and see Starlight Express as the moment I would highly recommend it, it’s at Bristol Hippodrome until Satuday 6th April 2013.

DISCLAIMER: While I am not paid for the review I do get the product/tickets for free

Seren's Summer Show 2012

Seren loves her dancing and musical theatre classes and always works really hard in the classes.   Each year they put on a show and here are a couple of pages showing her outfits and being backstage at the show.  As the pages are about the same event I kept the design similar but since there is about a month between the two pages they will not end up next to each other in the album.
These are pages 2 and 3 of 40 pages I intend to complete before my birthday in February 2014.

Inspired by

I love watching Shimelle's videos, they are so inspiring and easy to follow.  This page caught my eye as it mentioned Project Life but in the end I just copied the layout Shimelle had done rather than the Project Life page and love the way it turned out.

Smore's Layout by

Thank you Shimelle for all your inspiration.

This page is the first of 40 pages I intend to complete before my birthday in February 2014.
