The Emperor’s New Clothes – Christmas Show

shermanwebHave you ever lost something? A toy? A tooth? A memory?

What if, one day, you lost all of your ‘silly’?

When the Emperor demands the coolest clothes to help him be, well, ‘cool’… The call is answered by a pair of wily Weavers, who concoct a cunning plan and land everyone in an embarrassing situation. Who will help the Emperor rediscover his joy and silliness?

Sherman Theatre & Theatr Iolo present The Emperor’s New Clothes / Dillad Newydd yr Ymerawdwr – a reimagining of the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale. Written by award-winning playwright Alun Saunders, with songs and live music, there’s something here for the whole family this Christmas!

Soar Centre, Penygraig, CF40 1JZ

Wyt ti erioed wedi colli rhywbeth? Tegan? Dant? Atgof?
Beth petaet ti’n colli pob diferyn o wiriondeb?

Mae’r hen Ymerawdwr yn mynnu dillad mwyaf cŵl y deyrnas er mwyn cynnal ei enw da fel yr arweiniwr ffasiwn mwyaf, wel, ‘cŵl’! Pan ddaw’r Gwehyddion cyfrwys i’r fei, mae eu cynllun twp yn bygwth ‘dinoethi’ un o gyfrinachau mwyaf trist y dyn mawr.

Cyflwyna Sherman Theatr a Theatr Iolo Dillad Newydd yr Ymerawdwr / The Emperor’s New Clothes – dehongliad newydd sbon Alun Saunders o glasur Hans Christian Andersen. Gyda chaneuon a cherddoriaeth fyw, mae ‘na rywbeth yma i’r holl deulu y Nadolig hwn.

Monsters Inc new date

Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

It’s Art But It’s Not – Penygraig Art Installations

 

 

IPP Text Project FLYER DRAFTRCT Homes, Valleys Kids and Artes Mundi are currently collaborating on an exciting and innovative regeneration project called “it’s art but it’s not” as part of the Arts Council of Wales, Ideas, People and Places scheme. For the past year, a group of young people has been working with a contemporary artist Rabab Ghazoul, exploring the local environment, local history, dialogues amongst the group and conversations with local residents and businesses in the area.

The result is an amazing and inspirational installation of posters and billboards created by the group, which will feature in sites around the town. Rabab Ghazoul says, “The young people I’ve been working with have created some very subtle, touching, and sophisticated work.”

The installation was launched at a lovely event on Saturday March 12th 2016.

 If you would like to see the work there are maps available from our local shops, Penygraig Central Office at 1, Cross Street, Penygraig and the Soar Centre or you can download them here from our website.

The work is creating a mini sensation locally… do come and see for yourselves.

Valleys Cinema – The Lady in a Van

TheLadyInAVan

 

The Lady in the Van tells the true story of Alan Bennett’s strained friendship with Miss Mary Shepherd, an eccentric homeless woman whom Bennett befriended in the 1970s before allowing her temporarily to park her Bedford van in the driveway of his Camden home. She stayed there for 15 years. As the story develops Bennett learns that Miss Shepherd is really Margaret Fairchild (died 1989), a former gifted pupil of the pianist Alfred Cortot. She had played Chopin in a promenade concert, tried to become a nun, was committed to an institution by her brother, escaped, had an accident when her van was hit by a motorcyclist for which she believed herself to blame, and thereafter lived in fear of arrest.

Little Bryn Gwyn Dream Comes True

Our Director, Margaret Jervis attended  People’s Postcode Lottery’s Annual Charity Gala held in Edinburgh’s famous Assembly Rooms along with our Down to Earth Partner, Mark McKenna and received a cheque beyond our wildest dreams of £583,000 towards creating a landmark residential centre replacing Little Bryn Gwyn our much loved ramshackle cottage on the Gower.

‘Building Our Dreams’ is a joint project between Valleys Kids and Down to Earth Project and will  enable us to work with the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in South Wales to build the new centre.

Margaret Jervis, our Operational Director  said: “For the last 10 years we have dreamt of transforming Little Bryn Gwyn, our cottage on the Gower, into a landmark residential centre using the most beautiful and sustainable building methods available. It is only in partnership with Down to Earth and now, with funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery through the Dream Fund, that we can create something exceptional and extraordinary and fulfil that dream. But the biggest dream is that young people from some of the most disadvantaged communities in Wales can literally build their own centre and help build a better future for themselves.”

We cannot thank People’s Postcode Lottery and their players enough. The Centre will comprise 2 distinct buildings and this is  a brilliant launchpad towards completing the first building and helping us  raise the remaining funds to complete the second.

‘Some People Have Too Many Legs’ by Jackie Hagan – Friday 20th November 7pm at Soar Centre, Penygraig

“Last Summer Jackie Hagan went to hospital with a mystery disease, and was told that she was going to die. Luckily she didn’t die, but she did eat loads and loads of Kit Kats because she thought it wouldn’t matter if she got fat.

She also lost a leg, made friends with an old woman who looked like a threadbare tennis ball (with eyes), fell in love with a posh man called Miles, and found her Dad.

Some People Have Too Many Legs is a show about facing your fears and throwing glitter at them”.

Tickets are £5 and £2 for concessions. For further information on this Night Out event or to reserve tickets, please contact ArtWorks on: 01443 303032 / 01443 420870.
