New amateur theatre group makes its debut

A brand new amateur theatre group is on the hunt for actors and musicians to take part in its inaugural production.

Llangollen Musical Theatre Group is holding a Meet and Greet event on Tuesday, August 6 at the Llangollen Pavilion.

The event, which starts at 7.30pm, will provide the opportunity budding performers to find out about the group's production of Return to the Forbidden Planet, which will be staged at the Pavilion in November.

Paul Brown, the group's chairman, said: "This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in getting involved in musical theatre to come and meet our production team. Whether they've been treading the boards for years or just starting out, everyone is welcome.

"Return to the Forbidden Planet is a fantastic show full of rock and roll classics including Great Balls of Fire, Good Vibrations, She's Not There, The Young Ones and The Monster Mash.

"It takes the plot of Shakespeare's The Tempest and sets it on a spaceship to a soundtrack of 60s and 70s hits.

"Considering Llangollen is such a small town, there are already several theatre groups, including the Twenty Club and the Operatic Society, but this will be the first time such a modern production has been staged.

"There's not many other shows for which you could audition to play a spaceship's captain, a renegade scientist or a talking robot. There's even one part for which the ability to roller-skate would be an advantage!"

The group are also looking for musicians to join the on-stage band for the production. They are particularly looking for those who want to join the spaceship's crew playing trumpet, trombone or alto saxophone.

More information can be found on the group's Facebook page at or by emailing
