JOINING AAODS COMMITTEE

It’s no secret that theatre and amateur dramatics have played a huge role in my life and are one of my biggest passions. I spent every year from age 8 to age 18 in a local theatre society and since moving back to Abergavenny after uni, it has been something I have wanted to get back involved with. Last year as I eased into my life as a graduate, I decided to just participate in Pantomime whilst I found my bearings but missed the experience of putting on musicals greatly.

MUSICALS AND ME

Apparently today marks National Theatre Day and seeing that pop up on my newsfeed this morning just made me smile! I mentioned in my previous post that some stuff has being going on recently that has made me feel pretty defeated and down – a lot of the situation revolves around my theatre society and some problems we’ve been having. However, reflecting on all the wonderful experiences and memories that theatre has given me throughout my life has helped motivate me continue and rise above the negativity that is surrounding me at the moment.
