Concept Players present an evening of Rodgers and Hammerstein

Our next adventure is a series of concerts in June celebrating the words and music of Rodgers and Hammerstein. They will feature songs from their hit shows Carousel, State Fair, South Pacific, The King And I, The Sound of Music and, of course, Oklahoma! Tickets are �10 and we have online booking available for Abergavenny and Penarth. Details on all venues here.

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.

We are proud to announce that we have won the NODA District 4 awards for Best Musical for  A Little Night Music and  Ellie Hoare won Best Individual Performance for her Desiree Armfeldt. We were up against stiff opposition from our peers in South Wales so it was daunting but nice to get the recognition.

Well done cast and crew!

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.
