Theatr Colwyn



Presented by Trap Door Theatre Productions

By John Godber and Jane Thornton

After their successful sell out tour of ‘Bouncers’ earlier this year, they now are hitting the stages of The North West again with another of Godber’s great comedies.

Can you remember in the 1980’s when every town had its local trendy cocktail bar? Where everyone wanted to be seen, from the local check-out girls to the chinless wonders, from the yuppies to the local lads tittering at the thought of a `long comfortable screw’.

We are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses who work there. Rushed off their feet, underpaid and overworked, they try to smile and help the difficult customers whilst coping with their own personal problems.

A fascinating and often hilarious view of the reality which lurks behind the plastic palms and the Pina Coladas.

This production does contain Themes of an Adult Nature and Strong Language. Suitable for ages 15+

Rialto Film Night

Director: Richard Linklater
Cast: Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Lorelei Linklater
Running time: 166mins

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes.

Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as Mason’s sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no film has before.
Snapshots of adolescence from roadtrips to family dinners, to birthdays and graduations, and all the moments in between become transcendent.

BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting.
It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

“In Boyhood, Mr. Linklater’s masterpiece, he both captures moments in time and relinquishes them as he moves from year to year. He isn’t fighting time but embracing it in all its glorious and agonizingly fleeting beauty.” NEW YORK TIMES

ACORN ANTIQUES (Presented by Colwyn Abbey Players)

Book, Music and Lyrics by Victoria Wood

Colwyn Abbey Players, who brought the phenomenally successful CALENDAR GIRLS to Theatr Colwyn last year, are back with Acorn Antiques: The Musical!

Based on the soap opera parody sketches first seen in Victoria Wood’s AS SEEN ON TV with its wobbly sets and fluffed lines, Acorn Antiques now has the added attraction of singing and dancing, all in Victoria Wood’s inimitable style.

This Olivier Award-winning musical follows Miss Babs, Miss Berta, Mr Clifford and the irrepressible Mrs Overall, plus a host of equally eccentric characters, as they combine to foil a fiendish plot to turn Acorn Antiques and its neighbouring shops into a tanning booth, a 24hour wedding chapel and a dodgy cafe.

Be prepared to laugh a lot!

This is an amateur production affiliated to NODA.

No booking fee.

The Story of Ricky Tomlinson and Des Warren

In 1972 tens of thousands of building workers won the first national strike in the industry for better pay and conditions. ‘Flying pickets’ left the contractors reeling. The ‘Tory Government and the large building companies wanted revenge, and the ‘Shrewsbury 24’ were put on trial in the following year.

Townsend Productions’ new play, UNITED WE STAND, follows in the traditional of their highly successful productions The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists and We Will Be Free!-the Tolpuddle Martyrs Story, and focuses on the true and still very current events that led to the imprisonment of building workers Des Warren and Eric Tomlinson (better known as actor Ricky Tomlinson of ‘The Royle Family’).

Following the performance there will be a free after-show discussion with the actors and the Shrewsbury 24 campaigners.

The Hypnotist – LIVE!!!

Andrew Newton’s Mind Blowing Comedy Show returns to Theatr Colwyn

If you think it’s all about getting people to run round like chickens, think again! Newton offers some fascinating insights into the mind, punctuated by spells of side splitting laughter.

“Andrew Newton kept last night’s audience laughing from start to finish…What lifted the proceedings was Newton’s own personality and approach… slick, highly polished… Newton would have been funny no matter what his act.” Yorkshire Evening Post
