Members of the Llanymynech Amateur Dramatics Society (LADS) are holding their annual New Year Drama Workshop on Sunday, January 6.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of their experience, on a day of learning new skills and enjoying each other’s company.

Sessions this time include fun warm-up games, voice exercises, stage make-up, performing poetry, and exploring the 'world of the play'. There is no pressure to join in any session unless you feel comfortable.

If you fancy being involved in theatre but would rather take a backstage role, that’s fine too.

The workshop will be held at Pant Memorial Institute and the fun starts at 10am and will finish by 4pm.

It is completely free, but you will need a packed lunch and to wear comfortable clothing.

LADS is a thriving drama group based in Llanymynech and performing in venues throughout Shropshire and mid-Wales.

Established in 1992, the small group with big aspirations soon gained a reputation for delivering top quality theatre as well as encouraging local writers, musicians and other creatives.

The packed programme for 2019 includes an original musical piece about Shropshire women, Dirty Dusting (Ed Waugh & Trevor Wood), Shakespeare’s Richard III, and An Inspector Calls by J.B.Priestley.

Whether you have a hidden dramatic streak, want to make new friends or just fancy trying something new, this drama workshop could be just the thing to brighten up your New Year.
