Theatre in Wales

The latest theatre, dance and performance news

Theatre Addicts in and around Newport now have their own club!     

People who simply want to know more about theatre as well as those who are already regular theatergoers will be able to meet and discuss shows they have seen or want to see at The Riverfront with the new and exciting Theatre Addicts Club - and helping them will be expert David Adams, who started reviewing theatre as The South Wales Argus theatre critic over 20 years ago.

David Adams is now recognized as Wales’s leading theatre critic and he reviews for national and international publications as well as running theatre criticism courses. He first started in Wales whilst writing for The Argus, before becoming The Guardian’s arts correspondent for Wales.

The Theatre Addicts Club will meet on the 2nd Monday of each month 7.30pm - 9.00pm beginning Monday 9 January 2006, Membership for Theatre Addicts Club is £10 per season.

David Adams commented, "I still have lots of friends in Newport and I'm looking forward to seeing them again as well as meeting new ones. The Theatre Addicts Club will be an informal way of exploring how and why we react to the many different kinds of theatre we can enjoy at The Riverfront;

I hope to encourage audiences to get the most out of the experience and to find ways to talk about it – it’s all about getting beneath the surface of just liking or disliking a show. Criticism to me is all about unwrapping the different layers - and when you share that with others it’s always exciting how different people can find different things in the same event.”

Nick Young, Theatre and Arts Director at The Riverfront commented, “We want to offer regular theatre attendees a little extra and a chance to go a bit deeper into the theatrical experience, by joining the Theatre Addicts Club they will get not only that, but also discounted tickets for shows selected for criticism.”

Membership of the Theatre Addicts Club costs £10 per season and entitles members to tickets at the discounted rate of £7 for shows selected for criticism.

The Riverfront opened in October 2004 and is a thriving theatre, showing a broad range of Theatre, Comedy, Dance, Opera and Music.

David Adams has worked as a critic for The Guardian, The Stage, Plays International, BBC and has taught theatre criticism at both Newport and Glamorgan Universities.
