Autumn at Theatr Clwyd

Poster for Shake It Up's improvised Shakespeare show

Theatr Clwyd will welcome a range of touring shows to its marquee theatre this autumn before home-grown guaranteed hit Mother Goose, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto opens on November 23 for its long run until January 19.

Shakespeare hasn’t written anything new for an age, so ShakeItUP gives him a hand. The Improvised Shakespeare Show (August 30-31) uses his language, audience suggestions and several overactive imaginations to create a new Shakespeare play live on stage – complete with live music, songs and plenty of laughs.

Back due to popular demand, Locomotive for Murder (September 6-7) returns with a completely improvised murder mystery.

Families won’t want to miss Claytime (August 20) suitable for ages 3-6, a play made with clay, with the audience invited to join in.

Familiar face James Roland returns with James Roland Dies at the End of the Show (September 14). If you had an hour to live, how would you spend it? This is the third and final part of a trilogy that

began with the highly-acclaimed Learning to Fly and Piece of Work

Grist to the Mill and Red Dragonfly bring you the real heroine that inspired Disney’s Mulan, in The Ballad of Mulan (September 17). Shôn Dale-Jones returns with his show The Duke (September 25), a funny and poignant show about the fate of a family heirloom.

Victoria Wood fans will enjoy Looking For Me Friend: The Music of Victoria Wood (October 5). In telling Victoria’s story, Paulus The Cabaret Geek unfolds his own, the story of a 1970s childhood and what it means to find your tribe. The evening is filled with Victoria’s best-loved songs, including the iconic Ballad of Barry and Freda (Let’s Do It).

The season also features lots of comedy and music: a Family Arts Festival (August 3-4) is a low-cost, high-quality boredom-busting weekend full of shows, workshops, arts and crafts and music.

Join The Noise Next Door (September 8), in which the quickest wits in comedy take you on an improvised tour; or the theatre's Comedy Club (August 18-September 22), which features a host of established and up-and-coming jokesters (there's also a Welsh language version on September 15.

Music includes Acoustic Tones (September 4) with mellow tunes from singer-songwriters – all powered by bikes!
