Dear Friends and Theatre Lovers,
Our chief Thespian is away at present, gallivanting no doubt; so I am writing this entirely on my own. without her looking over my shoulder and trying to manoeuvre the mouse!
We have some splendid plans ahead. We will be giving readings from Simon’s book: Darkly Flows the Taff – and plan to record it. The reader is James Parry Jones – ex Llandovery College scholar and he played Mercutio in our 1981 Youth Production of Romeo and Juliet, which also performed at the Sherman Theatre Cardiff.
Then in September we will publish –What Country Friends is this? It is the Theatre memoir of Simon and Jacky Barnes, who founded and ran Llandovery Theatre together for 35 years.
Evening of November 12th. We are producing a programme of poetry, song and performance – Memories of War – timing it as a tribute to those who took part or experienced World War 1 and World War 2.
Do put this date in your diary!
And please remember that every last Friday in the month, the Heart Support Group meets at the Theatre, 2 – 4 p.m. in the coffee lounge, As the song says: Anyone who has a heart – is welcome to join us.
I wish all a sunny summer, and may only lucky black cats cross your path!
Horatio Nelson, Theatre Cat.
