MORE ABOUT US

The Theatre Adhoc Family

Theatre AdHoc has been delighting audiences across Greater Gwent for many 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 company touring arm of the company tours twice a year in January and May 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 become an annual occurrence. 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, - a production that was met with critical acclaim. 


In the wake of this success, a partnership was established with The Blaenavon Workmen's Hall, founding its first resident theatre company in over 30 years. Aptly named AdHoc @ The Workmen's, their first production in 2018 was "Keeping up Appearances" followed by a collaborative production of "A Christmas Carol" (featuring members of the Blaenavon Town Brass Band, Dawnsio Blaenafon and a specially formed choir of carollers). AdHoc Children's Theatre (ACT), also based at the Workmen’s, provides performance training and theatrical opportunities for younger members of the community including an hilarious annual pantomime! 


And the Theatre AdHoc Family continues to grow! 


AdHoc @ Tyleri now resides in Abertillery and the newly formed Theatre AdHoc Education and Training tour GCSE set texts  for schools and youth organisations throughout the country. In addition to theatre-based productions, the company also form small troupes of community performers when required to take part in local events - such as The Man Engine Tour of Wales and The Bevan Festival in Tredegar. 


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. The AdHoc family is always looking to recruit new members and to continue to provide opportunities for performers, writers and back stage crew. So, whether you are highly experienced, a compete novice or just looking to add to your theatrical CV - get in touch!
