You may have noticed a new shop pop up on Rhyl High Street over the last few weeks and you may have seen some theatrical goings on in and around the town and beach. It is all part of a new production coming to Rhyl by the National Theatre of Wales called Lifted By Beauty: Adventures In Dreaming.
The result will be a walking production inspired by local 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 as part of the performances from the 31st March to 2nd April.
Point FM’s Craig K spoke to Artistic Director, Kully Thiarai and Community Associate, Jan Millar about what to expect from the production that is take place over 3 days in Rhyl.
Point FM volunteer Lizzie was part of the cast for the walking production around Rhyl, she played a Goddess of the Sea in the finale of the show. Lizzie who is fairly new to the area tells us how she became involved with the production, you can listen again below:
