TICKETS ON SALE AND REHEARSALS START FOR NATIONAL THEATRE WALES’ LIFTED BY BEAUTY: ADVENTURES IN DREAMING CAST ALSO CONFIRMED FOR THIS NEW PRODUCTION CREATED AND STAGED IN RHYL, DENBIGHSHIRE Rehearsals for National Theatre Wales’ Lifted By Beauty: Adventures In Dreaming, whose audience will take a guided journey around Rhyl, start today. Artist Mark Storor and National Theatre Wales have been getting to know Rhyl and many of its residents over several months; from coffee shops to council offices, from book groups to food banks, from women’s centres to the beach, they have been gathering stories from those who know the town best. The result will be a walking production inspired by those people and their stories, including local political activists and mother and baby groups, newcomers to the town and some who’ve lived here their whole life. Walking in groups through the town centre and on the beach, audiences will encounter performances by professional artists including actors, dancers and circus artists, combined with soundscapes and light installations. Lifted By Beauty: Adventures In Dreaming will be a vivid portrait of the real Rhyl, a town on the cusp of regeneration. The production’s professional cast will include June Campbell-Davies, Marco Fiera, Lloyd Meredith, Rhys Meredith, Laura Moy, Francois Pandolfo and Caroline Sabin, all of whom start their rehearsals in the town today ahead of the performances 31st March-2nd April. In the meantime, National...
