Theatre Notes

The society is delighted to welcome you to the second production week of our 2017/2018 season, also our 49th here at Powys Theatre. Something different this time as we present two one act plays for your evenings entertainment, allowing us to introduce more new faces to the stage here at the little theatre. So, a more than warm welcome to Jay Bassil, Jonathan Davies and Beverley Dunkley as our excellent newcomers. Also a warm welcome back to Karen McMurdo. Both casts have really enjoyed the rehearsals for the plays and we hope you do too. All being well, we will take these two plays forward to present in the MCDA one act play festival in Berriew this coming April. Please keep an eye on our online platforms for more details. You support in our endeavours would be most welcome. Our next senior group production should be in early May, subject to casting. There will also be another youth group production towards the end of the season, with the classic “Wind in the Willows” currently being read. More details on diary dates to be given. If you are a “friend” of the theatre you will receive an email detailing the next productions. Unfortunately, due to rising costs, we may not be able to traditionally post out updates, so it is preferred that you update our friends scheme with you email addresses. If you don’t use email, then please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page. If you follow our Facebook page, you will receive regular updates on our productions and activities. As ever I would like to remind you that we are always looking to welcome new members to our society to help in all aspects of the production and running of the theatre. Remember, if you have any suggestions for possible future plays for our society to present, we would welcome your comments.
