Theatre AdHoc has been delighting audiences across Greater Gwent for over ten years.
The company was originally formed to sponsor small troupes in the annual Gwent One Act Play festival. Performances progressed to short plays within theatrical cabaret evenings in community venues across the borough of Torfaen and then, in 2011, the company performed "The Best End of Lamb" followed by "What's For Pudding?" and "Heroes" in small local tours. AdHoc’s first full length community collaborative production of "A Christmas Carol" was met with great critical success, propelling the company on to larger venues and longer tours.
Theatre AdHoc has continued to play to sold out audiences with productions of "The Vicar of Dibley", "Allo, Allo!", "Gasping", "Don't Get Your Vicars in a Twist", “Blackadder Goes Forth" and many more since! The touring arm of the company tours twice or three times a year entertaining audiences across South Wales.
Theatre AdHoc prides itself with developing new talent and in 2018 held the first “Evening of New Writing”, providing an opportunity for members of the company to showcase their own plays, a successful event which has led to several collaborations with local playwright Julia Lewis. Theatre Adhoc performers have also taken their first steps into serious drama, with a studio production of Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" at The Congress Theatre, Cwmbran and Dolman Theatre, Newport - a production that was met with critical acclaim.
And the Theatre AdHoc Family continues to grow!
In the wake of this success AdHoc @ Tyleri was formed in Abertillery and the newly formed Theatre AdHoc Education and Training tour GCSE set texts for schools and youth organisations throughout the country.
Adhoc Children's Theatre provides weekly theatre workshops for the youth of Torfaen and have performed plays such as "The Complete Works of Shakespeare - abridged!" The youth member also make up the majority of the cast of the annual Blaenavon pantomime which is also produced by Theatre Adhoc.
Theatre AdHoc is dedicated to providing opportunities for members of the South Wales valley communities to participate in theatre, whether as a performer or as a spectator. Theatre Adhoc is always looking to recruit new members and to continue to provide opportunities on and off stage.
