Under Milk Wood - coming soon!

Welcome to Llareggub. 

Home to blind Captain Cat who dreams of drowned sailors and lost love, Mog Edwards the draper secretly in love with sweet-shop owner Myfanwy Price, Dai Bread with his two exuberant wives, Mrs Ogmore-Pritchard with two ghostly late-husbands, Polly Garter with her many babies, and Reverend Eli Jenkins who watches over his flock as he dips his pen absent-mindedly in his cocoa. 

Dylan Thomas’s masterpiece is sixty-four years old, yet as fresh and inventive as ever. Beautiful, surreal, comic, and full of romance, ‘Under Milk Wood’ invites us to swim in the sea of Thomas’s voluptuous language and explore the secret thoughts of his quirky characters. Led by seasoned members who have been working with the RSC, the LADS are also joined by several new faces for this salty classic. 

With performances at Llanymynech Village Hall on 16, 17 and 18 November, plus a bonus performance at Ellesmere College Arts Centre on 21 November, this is definitely one not to miss. Tickets are £7 (£3.50 for children) and are available online via our 'Buy Tickets' page, or from all our usual sources. 

We strongly recommend advance booking for this production. 

 

LADS on film

Seems like we're positively bursting into the world of moving pictures!

Another LADS actor, Marg Kynaston (pictured as Maria in Twelfth Night) has been selected for a role in a local short film. Marg's scenes are being shot at Adcote School, and form part of a showcase piece for a film student. She's always been our very own Meryl Streep - fantastic in every role you throw at her - and now it seems that her fame is going to spread a little wider.

Well done, Marg!

Under Milk Wood casting

We will be having a casting session for 'Under Milk Wood' at Llanymynech Village Hall (main hall) at 7.30pm on Tuesday 22nd August
It will consist of a warm-up, some improvisation and some reading from the script. No-one will be put on the spot, it will hopefully be fun and inclusive. 

If you have any questions, or if you can't make it (and haven't already let me know that you are interested), please contact Alison by phone on 662093, or by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Performance dates will be mid-November (I hope to be able to confirm dates very soon). Rehearsals will be Tuesday and Friday evenings, with some other sessions as we get nearer to performance.

Remembering Neil Rhodes

On Sunday 13th August at 1.30pm we will be gathering at Llanymynech Village Hall to remember the late Neil Rhodes. We will celebrate Neil's achievements as founder member of the LADS, playwright, actor, director and historian, raise a glass in his honour and a photo of Neil will be hung in the Hall for posterity. 

Everyone is welcome to join us for this small gathering, which will be followed by the LADS Summer Social. 

Summer Social

You are warmly invited to the home of Dickon and Trish Faux-Nightingale from 2pm on Sunday 13th August 2017. (If the weather is kind, we will be able to enjoy their riverside garden.)

All are welcome - current and past LADS members and cast, anyone interested in joining, and friends. Please bring something to eat and drink. 

As parking is limited, we will be walking down from the Village Hall at 2pm, so please meet us there. For any other information, call 830558.
