28/04/13 | Into 2013: Having returned from the Continent after our hilarious excursion to wartime France for 'Allo 'Allo, the Attic Players have been very busy bees, as always! New flooring has been installed in the auditorium and the seat refurbishment (SOS) is just about complete. The theatre is looking better than ever! Rehearsals are well underway for the current production, and in between times many of the Players have been experiencing all the fun involved in film acting, under the careful directorship of Branwen and Suzanne Munn as the principle shooting for the feature film "Tunnel Vision" continues. Most of the film should be 'in the can' by August, at which point the film will move into post-production where Branwen and her trusty computers will weave their magic as the footage is edited together and enhanced with music, sound, special effects and all sorts of wow-factor trickery! Expect more news on "Tunnel Vision" as the year progresses, and watch out for screenings of our masterpiece at the Theatre in early 2014.
27/11/12 | JAGS production | The Junior Attic Group, also known as JAGS, announce a special production to be performed on Monday 17th December at 7pm in the Attic Theatre. The show is called "Pandora's Box" and features a variety of interesting pieces of theatre, all presented by our enthusiastic and talented young people. Please come along and support them!

08/11/12 | News update!:
Very exciting news about an Attic-related project happening during the next 18 months: The Attic Players are teaming up with Branwen and Suzanne Munn's GoldHill Productions to produce a feature length film entitled "Tunnel Vision". Currently in pre-production with shooting planned for summer 2013, "Tunnel Vision" is a supernatural thriller set in west Wales and will involve a large cast, mostly consisting of members of Attic. The film production will culminate in spring 2014 with a special event Gŵyl Ffilm Emlyn Film Festival when "Tunnel Vision" will be premiered alongside other work by local amateur film-makers. Budding amateur film-makers wishing to contribute to the festival can find more information here.
The "Save Our Seats" project is nearing completion. All but two rows of the seats have now been lovingly renovated by the multi-talented Winston Munn. When the seats are all finished they will be temporarily removed (again!) to allow us to install new flooring on the raised seating area before being fixed in their permanent positions. Name plaques will be the finishing touch. A big 'thank you' once again to all the kind supporters of the SoS campaign. We couldn't have done it without you!
30/09/12 | After all the bitter-sweet beauty of "Mixed Doubles", rehearsals are now well underway for the next Attic production. "'Allo 'Allo" by Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft features all your favourite characters from the hilarious BBC TV series, and, if the constant supply of laughter already evident among the cast and crew at rehearsals is anything to go by, will have our audiences in stitches throughout! With a large, talented cast this production celebrates the steady growth in membership the company has enjoyed during the past few years and we look forward to bringing lots of fun to the unsuspecting Newcastle Emlyn public in December.
31/07/12 | Thank to our fabulous audiences for "Mixed Doubles", directed by Erin Kavanagh. A series of vignettes by different playwrights exploring the emotional subject of marriage, ranging from a honeymooning couple through to a silver wedding anniversary and a discussion upon the mortality of love.

10/03/12 | SOS is in operation! Thanks to the generosity of our wonderful audiences during the pantomime, and the charitable donation of £500 from The Emlyn Circle in January, we have already made a good start in re-covering out seats.

21/06/11 | Congratulations to Neil James on his fantastic directorial debut with "The Exorcism" - the play was very well received and proved an excellent experience for all the cast and crew.
