Dolgellau Amateur Dramatic SocietyDolgellau
|artistic policy||Theatr Fach, as it's name implies (for non Welsh speakers, fach means small or little) is not a large venue but what the building, a former chapel, lacks in size, the company of people who perform in the space make up for in sheer enthusiasm.
They are a group of disparate individuals who number teachers, artists, retired business executives and one almost tame professional writer.
Throughout the year, the company puts on various productions; plays, readings, poetry readings, a summer show and, of course pantomime.
The group also plays host to 'professional' companies and individual performers. These 'professionals' performances are sponsored by Gwynedd Council under the 'Night Out Scheme'.
A recent lottery grant enabled the company to enlarge their back stage facilities and to add a club room where committee meetings and less formal gatherings take place.
The group are constantly putting out the welcome mat for new members and you don't have to be a performer to join!
|other notes||Recently awarded a grant of £99,000 to to build an extension to Theatr Fach, Dolgellau which will improve backstage facilities at the arts venue.|
