'It was like bombs going off': British producer left counting £1million cost of tornado that wrecked his theatre on opening night of new show
Hello, my Name is Priscilla Rees, I was born and raised in Swansea, so i am a Swansea girl through and through. I work for a company called Spirit Productions which is based in London but they have theatres all over America. I was visiting with my partner David king who owns the Company and the thetare in Missouri, where it was hit by a massive Tornado on the 29th Feb! We were staying in the hotel next door which was 100 yeards away from where it hit, so we are very lucky to be alive, also if the Tornado had come an hour earlier, the liklihood is it could have taken a theatre full of cast crew and 500 Audience members.
I was wondering if this story would be of use in the Evening post as I am from Swansea.
i was born in Swansea, my parents Gill and Tony Rees still live in Morriston along with my borther. I went to Pondarddulais comprehensive school and I also attended Gorseinon College where I did a course in Performing Arts. From the age of 3, I went to the Hazel Johnson dance school in Swansea which is also where Catherine Zeta Jones went in her younger years.
Please let me know if you need anymore information if you are able to use this story,
