Fees are based on £3 each session and are required for expenses for the group to operate. We ask that the total sum for each half term is paid at the beginning of the term, irrespective of whether full attendance can be made. As we are a small group it is difficult to budget without this contingency.
Please contact Suzanne Munn if you wish for further information about the group, either by phone on 01239 711856, or by completing the form to the right.
JAGS is the junior section of the Attic Players (Junior Attic Group Section, or Superstars, whichever strikes as the most appropriate!)
The group is for 9-16 year olds, and meets at the Attic Theatre in Newcastle Emlyn on Monday afternoons during term time at 4.15pm-5.45pm.
The emphasis is on interaction within the group and having fun with drama games, improvisation, learning techniques, and sometimes working together to put on a show. There is often an opportunity for those who wish, to take part in the Attic Players productions, particularly the Pantomime in December.
'Act Your Age' is an original and creative play with music written especially for JAGS by Suzanne and Branwen Munn.
Milly and Bree are two year 9 students who, while struggling to prepare a devised piece for their drama class, embark upon a colourful, time-travelling adventure through the history of acting. They meet a spectacular array of characters along the way as chaos begins to build amid the fun. Will they find their way back to their classroom in time to impress Miss Crawford with what they've learned?
'Act Your Age' is currently in production at the Attic Theatre, Newcastle Emlyn, with performance scheduled for 29th and 30th of June 2017 at 7pm (doors at 6:30pm). Tickets are £5 and are available to book online from the Attic Players Ticketsource page or can be purchased in person from Fair & Fabulous in Newcastle Emlyn.
'Alice' was a light hearted entertainment performed in the Attic Theatre in March 2016, and based loosely on the characters from Lewis Caroll's 'Alice in Wonderland' with a script adapted by Suzanne Munn. The production was enhanced by some exciting projections on stage, provided by Branwen Munn utilising the recently acquired state-of-the-art technology in the theatre.
The cast from JAGS, many of whom had never performed in public before, had great fun portraying such random figures as an e-cigarette smoking caterpillar, a cook who didn't know not to feed the baby from a wine bottle, as well as singing flowers. All ended well of course with the Queen of Hearts and her slightly soppy husband getting their come-uppance in the end, but lots of adventures had to be experienced before that.
Although there was much hard work involved in producing this show, JAGS are very eager to repeat the experience.
During May 2014 JAGS went on a journey through the Wardrobe to the magical land of Narnia in this spectacular production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Our audiences were wowed by the energetic and passionate performances by every JAGS member, some of which playing multiple characters. The backstage work was all managed entirely by the cast - an impressive feat considering the complexity of the production! The cast were joined on-stage by senior Attic member John Fenna who played the Professor.
