Steps stars Ian H Watkins and Faye Tozer yeehaa'd their way into the hearts of the audience at the Grand last night, as the Autumn Season got off to a flying start with Rhinestone Mondays.
This brand spanking new musical comedy has all the right ingredients for pure entertainment, albeit very light-hearted and not too taxing on the brain.
Following the lives and loves of a group of line dancers over a period of five evening classes, Rhinestone Mondays has a whole host of sing-a-long numbers to wow Country and Western fans, including the Johnny Cash classic Ring of Fire, Stand by Your Man, sung with total conviction by ex-New Seeker, Lyn Paul and the delightful Annie's Song, always guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye.
The one-liners came thick and fast from Shaun Williamson as Brian the bartender, whose delivery and comedic timing really stole the show. That said, Phil Pritchard was perfectly cast in the role of Clint, the would-be cowboy, while Ian H Watkins provided the camp element.
It's a simple love story, with a comical plot which brings a smile to your face and the urge to dance all the way home is hard to resist.
Runs until Saturday.
