A warm welcome to the website of the Llangollen Twenty Club Amateur Players. One of the oldest dramatic societies in North Wales, the club was founded in 1946 with twenty original members, which gave the club its name. The club presents two plays a year, in autumn and spring, with a mixture of comedy, drama and period productions.
Our November production will be a World Premiere: "Hannay Stands Fast!" by David Edgar (a comedy based on the novel "Mr Standfast" by John Buchan - a sequel to "The Thirty-Nine Steps"). Performance November 2nd to 4th 2017. More details on FaceBook here.
If you are interested in appearing in any of our productions, or helping in any way, please contact us and come to the auditions (you don?t have to be a member as they are open to all). Also, just because we are called the Twenty Club doesn?t mean you have to be over twenty to join ? we are called that because we started in 1946 with twenty members!
We are also looking for people who would be interested in helping backstage, front of house, publicity or tickets, there are many jobs available - far outnumbering the number of cast needed and all vitally as important! If you would like to be involved, even if you can only spare a little time, we would love to hear from you. We also hold a number of social evenings throughout the year, so you don?t even have to work to be a member!
We still need younger blood to come in and help across all roles, so that the reputation we have of putting on good productions with excellent sets can continue. It truly is a team effort to stage a production ? come and try us out!
If you would like to be considered for a role in the play, but are unable to make the auditions, then please get in touch!
The society's first production was 'Distinguished Gathering', and since then it has presented over 100 separate plays. In the 21st Century, the Twenty Club continues its programme of events, visits and readings, and currently has more than 100 members, many of whom live locally. One of the founder members, Betty Lowe, is now Life President and still active on stage. We strive to reach professional standards in every aspect of production, and pride ourselves on the welcome we give to audience members, both old and new.
A member of the National Theatre for the Disabled, the club takes productions to a Cheshire Home in the Llangollen area. Along with other users of the Town Hall in Llangollen, we are working towards a grant application to improve the social and performance amenities in this fine example of a Victorian civic building.
We hope you will browse around our website, and sample what the club has to offer. Should you have any questions, or wish to find out more, then please do not hesitate to contact us using the addresses on the 'Contact Us' page.
