November production

Auditions are underway for Far from the Madding Crowd, by Thomas Hardy & Matthew White, directed by Alison Utting. 

You don't have to be a current member of LADS to come along, and our audition process is very informal and fun - you won't be put on the spot. There are speaking and non-speaking parts available, and we're also looking for singers and musicians. 

Just drop in to the auditions, or email us if you would like more info. 

Sunday 2nd June - 3pm Oswestry Memorial Hall

Tuesday 4th June - 7pm Pant Memorial Hall

Nine, by Jane Shepard

A unique opportunity to see this powerful one-act play performed by the LADS. 

Two imprisoned women - played by Pam Johnson and Marg Kynaston - keep themselves and hope alive against all the odds, using language as a tool for survival. This impressive performance, directed by Julia Thomas, won the LADS a coveted place in the Welsh final of the 2017 One-Act Play Competition. 

Bringing the play to the Hermon Arts Centre in Oswestry allows a whole new audience to experience this harrowing yet inspirational drama. Don't miss it. 

PLEASE NOTE - This performance has been postponed until later in the year. 

Richard III

Rehearsals are underway for our summer play - William Shakespeare's History of King Richard III

Directed by Pam Johnson, this exciting production will be touring three fabulous venues: Chirk Castle, The Willow Globe in Rhayader, and Theatre Severn (Walker Theatre) in Shrewsbury. 

If you just can't wait, you can book your tickets already via our 'Buy Tickets' page. 

 

 

Voices of Eve - the premiere

We're very excited about this show, which opens on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th at Ellesmere College Arts Centre.  

The evening starts with 'Fridge Magnet Syndrome', a compelling monologue written by our patron, Michael Corbidge. We are given a glimpse into the life of a typical middle-aged woman, struggling with the immense changes that have come into her life with the departure from the home of all her children. 

The second half is a unique blend of narrative, poetry and song. Polly Bolton and Gill McEvoy have created a spellbinding telling of the lives of three real women from Shropshire's past. It will bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your lips, and the haunting melodies will linger in the memory.

Tickets are available online, by phone 01691 830558, or at the door. 

Further performances to follow. 

Voices of Eve

From the wilds of South Shropshire in the eighteenth century to the loneliness of a modern 'empty-nest' mother, the experiences of women reverberate through the ages. Women from the LADS theatre group bring you laughter and tears, poetry and song in this exquisite two-part evocation of womanhood - Out Of The Land, by Polly Bolton and Gill McEvoy, and Fridge Magnet Syndrome, by Michael Corbidge. 

Directed by Pam Johnson.
