Welcome to The LADS

The LADS is a small, friendly and supportive 'amateur' group with a big personality and even bigger aspirations. Since 1992 we have been bringing live theatre to the Llanymynech and Oswestry area. We have also produced several large community plays, and recently performed at the Swan Theatre in Stratford as a part of the RSC Open Stages project.

Origin of the word ‘amateur’

Late 18th century: from French, from Italian amatore, from Latin amator 'lover', from amare 'to love'.

So we participate in 'amateur' theatre for the love of it – and in no way need to accept that it is less valuable an offering because we do it without pay.
