Ciur Joseph Porter KCB surrounded by the crew and his sisters, cousins and aunts abord the HMS Pinafore 

We have just finished a wonderfully fun production of HMS Pinafore. We played to excellent houses in Abergavenny and Penarth and are now having a little rest before embarking on our next venture which is a concert celebrating the productions of Rodgers and Hammerstein (more details coming soon). For a full show report and photos of HMS Pinafore please click here.

A Little Night Music was a blast and has been nominated for 3 NODA District Awards: Best Musical, Best Stage Technical and Best Individual Performance for Ellie as Desiree Armfeldt, we will find out later in the year how we do, but in the meantime you can read all about our newest Sondheim experience  here.


Bard Boy

For those of you who have only ever seen us perform live, it may be a bit of a surprise to learn that several of the members of the group have had considerable experience as extras in various television and film projects over the years. But this Autumn, we took the bold step of making a movie of our own. Admittedly, it is only four minutes long but it's a genuine movie, filmed in high definition video, with a script and actors and everything! As you probably know, our resident author, Nigel, as well as writing plays, also writes novels, which can be found on Amazon Kindle. In order to publicise them, he has made several short video trailers, using still images, audio dialogue and musical underscoring. When he decided to try to create a similar trailer for his comic novel, Bard Boy, he realised that he needed to tell a small part of the story as a teaser. So, he wrote a short script and persuaded various members of the Concept Players to help him to act it out. If you want to see the final result, click here.
