Such a shame that amateur theatre doesn't get more publicity. After all, most of our wonderful professional actors started by taking part in school performances, or by joining a local amateur theatre group.
It would really be appreciated if National Theatre Wales kept in touch with NODA and like organisations - or indeed with amateur groups all over Wales.
There is a tremendous amount of talent involved in amateur theatre. - people who have not taken that step to apply for drama college and are content to teach, be a solicitor, be a housewife. They too should be acknowledged for the quality of their work.
Powers that be, I challenge you to come to watch amateur performances from time to time. I hope you will use your resources to support all actors, directors and technicians whether they be paid or unpaid.
