Theatr Clwyd announces winter 2017 season

A season of heart-warming theatre and panto for autumn/winter in north Wales

Nessah Muthy's new work Heroine will come to Theatr Clywd in October

Theatr Clwyd, the largest producing theatre in Wales, has announced its September to January programme.

The programme features two Christmas productions: The Snow Queen, which is co-produced by previous Theatr Clwyd collaborators, Paperfinch and Sleeping Beauty - The Rock and Roll Panto.

The Snow Queen, adapted and directed by Joe Bunce, will open in the Emlyn Williams Theatre from 15 December until 6 January.

In the Anthony Hopkins Theatre, a new production of Peter Rowe's Sleeping Beauty - The Rock n' Roll Panto will run from 24 November to 20 January. This production sees Zoë Waterman direct actor-musicians playing rock and soul classics, including "Superstition", "Celebration" and "Every Breath You Take".

Theatr Clwyd and HighTide's co-production of Nessah Muthy's Heroine will run from 18 October to 4 November in the Emlyn Williams Theatre. This follows performances at this year's HighTide Festival at Aldeburgh and Walthamstow. The production will be directed by HighTide co-founder and artistic director, Steven Atkinson.

These shows will join the previously announced productions of Uncle Vanya; a newly adapted co-production with Sheffield Theatres, and a major revival of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.

Theatr Clwyd's ice rink which overlooks the Clwydian Hills will also return for a second year.
