Ammanford Minersí Theatre Hosts A Giant Production!     

Ammanford Minersí Theatre Hosts A Giant Production! The ground will be shaking in Ammanford, 28 May as Theatr Na N’og make a second stop at Carmarthenshire Theatres with their larger than life children’s tale Me, A Giant, at the Miners’ Theatre. The production has already been a huge hit since the tour kicked off a few months ago and has taken in sights such as Carmarthen’s Botanical Gardens, with six performances in the grounds.

Performed in the Welsh language, Fi Y Cawr is the ‘alternative’ tale of Jack And The Beanstalk. There’s no angry ‘Fi fie fo thumb!’ – instead, when Jack plants a seed in his back garden the unlikeliest of friendship grows. He meets a giant but it’s not like the one in his storybook. After Rhys, Jack’s smelly big brother, chops down the Giant’s beanstalk the adventure begins. Can Jack help the Giant get home again and find the strength to become a hero? Along the way, Jack encounters some familiar faces, including the Troll from the Three Billy Goats Gruff and the witch from Hansel And Gretel - but are they really who they seem at first glance?

Theatr Na n’Og have been providing first-class theatre that captures young minds and imaginations for twenty five years. Funded by The Arts Council Of Wales, written by Roger Williams, directed by Phylip Harries, with the musical talents of Greg Palmer behind the compositions, this excellent musical play, based on the well-known tale of Jack and The Beanstalk, is certain to delight five to seven year olds, imparting the added message of friendship and first impressions.

A free theatre shuttle bus is in operation for this production, running between Carmarthen, Llanelli and Ammanford, with local pick-ups en-route. For more information, contact the box office.

Tickets, priced £5 - £6, are available from the box office: 0845 226 3508/09/10
