Spring brings rejuvenation at Theatr Brycheiniog, with the launch of a fresh new programme brimming with stimulating activities and events. With the brand new Corporate Support Club spring at the theatre is a time of fresh activity.

The programme celebrates the power of our relationship with nature at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, and Our Life with Birds, when birds of prey will swoop across the auditorium. The centenary of World War I is marked in high quality new drama, The Wood, whilst the incredible mask work in A Brave Face continues to explore war as a theme.

January welcomes the return of The Westenders with a brand new gem in the form of Aladdin! (20 – 27 January), and in Feburary, mountaineer, wall-climber and winter expedition writer Andy Kirkpatrick (12 February) gives a fascinating Speakers from the Edge talk to coincide with the release of award winning film, Psychovertical. Brecon born Christina Rogers appears as Just Adele (16 February) and Woman of Flowers (20 February) marks the season’s first great Welsh drama as this dynamic production based on the ancient Mabinogion tells the legend of Saunders Lewis’ Blodeuwedd as never before. The first celebrity guest arrives as Jimmy Osmond (23 February) pays tribute to legendary Andy Williams in Moon River and Me and NDCWales return with their atmospheric new triple bill show, Terra Firma, (26 February).

Later in the season Theatr Brycheiniog will be the venue for Stewart Lee, (7 March); The Wood, (8 March) a powerful drama written to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I; and The Circus of Horrors presents Voodoo (26 March).

There's family fun too with There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly (4 & 5 April), the free Family Dance Festival (7 & 8 April) and Our Life With Birds. TV and television actor and Spandau Ballet star, Martin Kemp, talks candidly about his amazing career in An Audience With Martin Kemp (14 April), and Bellowhead lead singer and ‘stand out performer of his generation’ (The Guardian) Jon Boden (17 April) performs hits from his brand new album ‘Afterglow.’ Welsh speakers and learners will not want to miss a stirring adaption of period drama Miss Julie (26 April) performed in Welsh.

The season closes with Vamos Theatre's latest production A Brave Face (28 April). The place: Afghanistan. The year: 2009. Post-traumatic stress is explored in Vamos’ trademark, wordless, full mask style.
