More awards for LADS

LADS is thrilled to announce that two of our youngest members, Grace Bowyer and Melissa Chapman, have brought home TWO awards from the Montgomeryshire One-Act Play Festival. 

'Red Dress Manor', an original play written by the two girls, was heaped with praise by independent adjudicator David Price. When the trophies were presented on the final night, they were thrilled to discover they had been awarded Best Junior Production - and that they were to share the trophy for Best Junior Performance.

Melissa and Grace have performed with the LADS in several recent productions, as well as being key members of Roleplay, Llanymynech's popular junior drama club. We are so excited that their hard work and talent has been recognised and look forward to lots more success in the future for them both. 

Casting call

Great roles for women in the LADS 2018 summer production

Anna Lingard is making her directorial debut with a stunning play for four women. 'My Mother Said I Never Should', by Charlotte Keatley, is a groundbreaking classic. A challenging text, this powerful but playful play provides insight into the lives of four generations of women set against the enormous social changes of the twentieth century, and the desire to love and be loved. Chosen by the National Theatre as one of the top one hundred significant plays of the 20th century. 

There will be two open workshop/audition evenings at Llanynymech Village Hall on Tuesday 24th April and Friday 27th April 7.30-9.30pm. The parts are for women of all ages. There is an open invitation to the workshop even if you then decide you don't want to be considered for a part. Just come and have fun!

If you would like to be involved but can't get to either of the workshops, please email Anna on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
