Final call for boarding as audiences are flown to sunny Benidorm for a laugh-a-minute production. The famous Solana hotel and the Alicante sunshine were brought to the North Wales coast when the hit TV show Benidorm took to the Venue Cymru stage for its opening night.

Stars of the ITV television series including Jake Canuso (Mateo), Janine Duvitski (Jacqueline), Adam Gillen (Liam), Sherrie Hewson (Joyce Temple-Savage), Shelley Longworth (Sam) and Tony Maudsley (Kenneth) brought their much-loved characters to life for the audience and let me reassure you it’s just as crazy and bonkers in real life as it is on the tele!

As a fan of the TV show, which has been on screens for 10 years, I immediately knew Benidorm Live was something I had to see. I couldn’t wait to see how writer Derren Litten would mould these characters and the storylines for the stage and I was definitely not disappointed.

Litten has put together a perfect show for Benidorm fans. The production is packed with hilarious humour, innuendos, loveable characters and a set which will have you amazed! Audiences will be guaranteed to feel part of the show from the moment they enter the theatre when they see the Solana, Neptune Bar and hear the likes of Cher and George Michael playing in the background!

This live ‘on-stage’ episode has plenty of links to past episodes of Benidorm and many references to characters previously seen on the show. Of course, as each character appeared on stage they received a warm welcome from the audience. Jacqueline played by the fabulous Janine Duvitski was one of those characters, she’s loved for her double entendres, rude remarks and innuendos – if you go to watch the show keep an ear out for her cocktail choices… need I say anymore? You can probably guess for yourselves!

Hands down my favourite scenes of the night were all those which included Blow ’n’ Go’s Tony Maudsley (Kenneth) and Adam Gillen (Liam). The natural comic timing between them is incredible and I was in stitches every time they joined the stage. There were plenty of unexpected added comedy moments from Gillen which had the audience including the rest of the cast in fits of laughter. The scene where he sings ‘Unforgettable’ might have been one of the funniest scenes I’ve seen play out live on stage.

I’ve never left a theatre aching from laughing, or come to that, heard the auditorium filled with so much laughter. Benidorm really lifted the spirits in Venue Cymru and the standing ovation was rightly deserved. Benidorm isn’t Benidorm without these fantastic characters and actors – they all play a wonderful part to make the show what it is.

If you are a fan of the series or just love good comedy – this is one is for you!

So what are you waiting for? Grab your sun cream, order in the Sangria and get yourself to Venue Cymru to see this hilarious production of Benidorm Live!

Benidorm Live will be at Venue Cymru until April 13th so grab your shorts and swimsuits and head down to Venue Cymru – this is one laugh-out-loud show you’ll definitely not want to miss.

To book your tickets for the sunshine show of the season just call the Box Office on 01492 872000 or visit the Venue Cymru website.
