About Us

Each year, we try to stage three plays – the first in November, then February and April. Our plays are typically comedies, thrillers and dramas and are performed for up to five nights – Tuesday through to Saturday.

We rehearse twice a week for about eight weeks. Rehearsal nights are Monday and Thursday, with extra nights the week before the show. Rehearsals and performances are in our own premises at Powys Theatre, Canal Road, Newtown.

The members work tirelessly and their enthusiasm is amazing. If you have the opportunity to see any of our performances you will not be disappointed.

One of the best parts about NADS is the friendships you make and the memories you create….

If you are interested in further information about joining us we’d love to hear from you!
