Swansea, West Glamorgan

Brynmill Primary School, Trafalgar Place, Mondays & Wednesdays 7:15 pm-9.30pm
In late 1960 a small group of friends got together to do a one off show to raise money for the University Appeal. The driving force was Frank Tucker aided and abetted by Val Treharne and Adrian Howells. The first meeting and reading of The Boyfriend was at a member's house in Cwmdonkin House, Terrace Road. The first show was performed in January 1961 at The Llewellyn Hall. It was such a success that the group were invited to perform at the Waterford International Festival of Light Opera in the Autumn of that year 1961. As some of the original cast , and the Producer, were unable to go to Waterford, the show was recast and David Thomas was appointed as Producer.
The Abbey Players were named after Singleton Abbey where they first rehearsed. and made many visits to the Waterford Fesitval in Ireland, where they won many awards over the years. The society eventually, outgrew their "home" at the Llewellyn Hall in the YMCA and moved to the Grand Theatre, presenting shows on a much bigger scale.
If you are or were an Abbey Player and have any interesting stories to tell, we'd love to hear from you. mail@abbeyplayers.co.uk
The Abbey Players are an amateur group based in Swansea .Their productions are at Swansea Grand Theatre.

Cockett Amateur Operatic Society

Facebook  Twitter  

6 Cwmgelli Road, Morriston, Swansea, West Glamorgan SA6 7PD

Founded in 1962 as Cockett Church Gilbert and Sullivan Society by the incumbent, Fred Secombe, this group went on to complete the canon of 13 G & S operettas plus the Sullivan & Burnand "Cox and Box" by 1979. During this period, the Society competed successfully three times at the Waterford International Festival of Light Opera, winning the Mark Cannon Award for best G & S Production, the Swift Choral Shield and numerous pieces of crystal glass and certificates of merit.
In 1981, the Society ventured away from G & S with Offenbach's "La Belle Helene" and became Cockett Amateur Operatic Society (C.A.O.S). Since then, the repertory has become quite diverse, illustrating a remarkable degree of versatility.
In 1994, C.A.O.S. claimed the Welsh Premier of "Chess", following on from the Swansea City Premier of "Pickwick" the year before. The complete repertory is included in this website.
This year's presentation of "Hot Mikado" clocked up the 41st production over what has been a happy and rewarding period of years. C.A.O.S has the enviable reputation of being a most friendly organisation where associations tend to be long term. Several founding families have remained active into the second generation, but, of course, newcomers are always made very welcome.
Although the Society is now a registered charity, over the past forty odd years, total contributions to deserving causes from this group have run well into five figures.
The Society performs each year, usually in March, at the Taliesin Arts Centre, University of Wales, Swansea and tickets are always at a premium. We meet every Thursday evening, from September through to the Show in March...

South Glamorgan
Cardiff

We are a small amateur theatre group based in South East Wales and were set up in order to try to put on productions that were just that little bit different. We believe we bring a fresh approach to the business of running an amateur musical theatre company. We enjoy ourselves and take great efforts to ensure our audiences do as well. We believe in nurturing talent and avoiding the pitfalls of bad sets, bad costumes and run-of-the-mill productions. If it is worth doing, it is worth doing well!

Cowbridge Amateur Dramatics Society

Facebook  Twitter  

Cowbridge

Cowbridge Amateur Dramatic Society (CADS) was formed in 1947 to relieve the tedium in those pre-television days of austerity and anti-climax of the wait for the fifties and the arrival of the 'modern' world. It has been going ever since.
We aim to put on three main productions each year; one in March, one in June/July and one around November. The plays we have staged over the years vary from comedy and farce to dramas and classic plays. Unlike a number of groups, we don’t just stick to well known ‘safe’ plays, but also try new pieces or try to present plays in a new way. This is largely to challenge ourselves artistically, but also to provide something fresh for our audience.
Rehearsals are usually on Monday and Wednesday evenings, and all are welcome to join. Membership is set at £15 per annum. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact the membership secretary

Glamorgan Drama League

Glamorgan

The Glamorgan Drama League is an umbrella organisation for community theatre groups in South Wales.
We organise two regular Festivals each year: The Berwyn Festival of One Act-Plays and The Glammies, a peripatetic festival.
In 2004 we host the Wales Final and we hope to develop a new full-length festival in the near future. One of the important roles of the GDL is networking between groups, who without their contact with the GDL would hardly know that other groups exist. We also organise occasional training courses. The GDL is run by a Delegates Committee. Meetings are generally held in Pontyclun.
Currently there are over thirty groups affiliated to the GDL.
