Captain of The Lost Waves


Captain of The Lost Waves

Like imagining Charlie Chaplin with the voices of Freddie Mercury and Klaus Nomi, singing songs written by Irving Berlin
-- Glastonbury Arts/Fringe Festival

The Captain is not just the figurehead of his musical vessel: he’s ringmaster; bard; troubadour; master of ceremonies and sage. With one leg in early 20th Century vaudeville and the other in tomorrow’s social commentary (yes, he has very long legs!), there’s far more to him and his absurdly engaging world than any of your ten-a-penny musical stars. Seen through showers of glitter, kaleidoscopic lens flares and in the rainbows in a million puddles, the Captain of the Lost Waves tells stories to connect with everyone past, present and future.

With almost a quarter of a century entertaining people through his storytelling, The Captain is the kind of ebullient troubadour you might imagine flitted from village to village in centuries past. Indeed, with no concrete details as to his Earthly origins (beyond some vagaries about Yorkshire) what can be said is that he has travelled extensively, taking his show to audiences who are transported aboard his mystical voyages as he variously inhabits the personae of Scaramouche, The Pied Piper and all the good captains rolled into one (Hook, Pugwash and Beaky for starters).

Synthesis sees the Captain looking both fore and aft, comprising four classic singles (including crowd favourite Mr Many Men) and four brand new tracks, the perfect opportunity to hop aboard for the first time or to take stock and prepare to set sail once more. The video to the new first track to be released from this new set is Uniforms, whose video is set to appear on 12th November 2018.

Showtime Singers


Showtime Singers

The Showtime Singers are one of Aberystwyth's oldest amateur dramatics societies. Showtime Singers was formed when Aberystwyth music teacher Hazel Holt decided that the choir she was leading in the 1980s was capable of putting on a musical theatre production. She was so committed to the idea that in 1984 she funded the first show herself and Showtime Singers was born!
