Tolkien, Shakespeare, eraill …a chi! | Tolkien, Shakespeare, others …and you!
Yng Nghanolfan y Celfyddydau, Aberystwth ar Fawrth 15fed, 2019.
In Aberystwyth Arts Centre on March 15th, 2019.

Bydd Ian McKellen yn dathlu ei ben-blwydd yn 80 y flwyddyn nesaf drwy godi arian ar gyfer theatrau, gyda sioe un-dyn newydd bydd yn cael ei pherfformio ar 80 o lwyfannau ar draws Prydain - gan gynnwys Canolfan y Celfyddydau, Aberystwyth!

Ian McKellen is to celebrate his 80th birthday next year by raising funds for theatres, with a new solo show which will play on 80 stages across the UK - including Aberystwyth Arts Centre!

Mae bob dim yn cychwyn ym mis Ionawr 2019 gyda thaith o Lundain o’r National Theatre i’r Theatre Royal Stratford East, yn ogystal â pherfformiadau yn y West End a chyffiniau Llundain. Yna, ar draws y wlad, bydd Sir Ian yn ymweld â theatrau bach a mawr sydd gyda chysylltiadau personol, gan gynnwys grwpiau amatur oedd e’n nabod fel plentyn a theatrau nodedig perfformiodd ynddynt fel actor proffesiynol dros yr hanner ganrif diwethaf.

Bydd tocynnau wedi’i phrisio’n hygyrch ar gael ym mhob man. Bydd yr holl elw yn mynd at achosion penodol ym mhob theatr.

Mae ei sioe agos yn gymysgedd o hel straeon ac action, gan gynnwys Tolkien, Shakespeare…a chi yn y gynulleidfa.
It all begins in January 2019 with a Tour of London from the National Theatre to the Theatre Royal Stratford East, as well as performances in the West End and Outer London. Then, across the country, he will visit theatres large and small with which he has personal connections, including amateur groups he knew as a child and notable playhouses he has played in as a professional actor over the last half-century.


Accessibly priced tickets will be available everywhere. All profits will benefit specific causes at each theatre.

His intimate show is a mixture of anecdote and acting, including Tolkien, Shakespeare, others...and you the audience.
Mae Ian McKellen yn dweud... | Ian McKellen says...

“I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.

Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I’ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions. Sean Mathias, the director and I have worked together for stage and screen, many happy times.

My childhood holidays were usually in North Wales and in the South, I’ve often appeared in Cardiff and Swansea. This will be my first visit to Aberystwyth. Better late than never! Profits go to the Arts Centre’s programme of theatre for young children and families.”
