Hi all - we're coming back to the Valleys with Tonypandemonium in Oct this year. Come and join the show group to get all the updates.


I'm really pleased to be able to tell you that WalesLab is now taking new submissions. (I'm really excited about this)

WalesLab, is National Theatre Wales creative development programme for new theatre ideas. It's an opportunity for writers, directors, actors, choreographers, designers, performance artists, installation-makers and multi-media experimenters across Wales to develop new ideas in association with the company.

We are particularly interested in hearing from artists who are based in or originally from Rhondda Cynon Taf and the surrounding areas, or who have a story to tell about its communities to feature as part of the company's residency at the Park and Dare Theatre, Treorchy.

Join the WaleLab group to find out more information or give me a shout on here if you have any questions.

Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed the show which I saw on Saturday! Was funny, warm, authentic, moving and tremendously good fun, the whole audience absolutely loved it and I did too. Very very excited to see the other shows!

Spotted John McGrath at To Kill A Mockingbird in the New Theatre last night. Without wanting to sound like too much of a stalker, he looked like he was having a nice time. Q excited about next week now...

I think they've actually made very good choices in their casting, and I'm sure the time will come later in other productions for opportunities to use up and coming actors, but for this show, at this time, and in this place, they've got it spot-on. Selling drama productions in the Valleys is a bit of a hard slog and using well-known actors is definitely a bonus to get people to want to see the show. I don't think it's a case of wanting 'star power' for their first show - it just so happens that the first show is in the Valleys and is being made for a Valleys audience.

I just saw the cast list for A Good Night Out in the Valleys, and I must say I'm a little disappointed. Although I'm sure the people involved will pull off a great show, and one I'm looking forward to seeing, it would have been nice for there to have been a couple of lesser-known performers. I appreciate NTW are going for a bit of 'star power' for the opening performance, and a couple of well known names would still help with this, but I think it would've been nice to see a few actors who have a full background in theatre and haven't been in 'Belonging' or 'Skins', but deserve the chance to perform at this level. It's great that NTW aren't focusing purely on Cardiff and the main cities in this opening year, but in the same way it would've also been nice for them to use established names with some younger up-and-coming talent.
Not a major dig, more of an observation, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the show goes.

We are looking for a house band to play the music for 'A Good Night Out in the Valleys'in each of the Institutes. If you are a band or just an individual player it doesn't matter, get in touch! There is also no age limit!!

We will choose five bands who will work with our Musical Director Daniel Lawrence who will direct them through the songs and music.

The venues are Blackwood Miners Institute, Blaengarw Workmen's Hall, Pontardawe Arts Centre, Bedwas Workmen's Hall and The Coliseum, Aberdare. Dates of the performances are posted here.

If you would like to be one of the house bands or want further information then please email me at hannahbevan@nationaltheatrewales.org

We are looking for enthusiastic people to become TEAM ambassadors for our first production ' A Good Night Out in the Valleys'!

An ambassador would represent National Theatre Wales in the various communities across the South Wales Valleys and help spread the word about 'A Good Night Out in the Valleys'.
There will be lots of different ways you can benefit from being a TEAM member and being a part of the TEAM would allow you to shape what National Theatre Wales does in the future.

If you would like to become part of the TEAM or want further information then please email me at hannahbevan@nationaltheatrewales.org.

Well @royalcourt @NTWtweets @ShermanTheatre On Bear Ridge is the best play I have seen in a long, long time. Still processing it so I can’t say much more. Just go see it.
