DYDD GWENER 3YDD MAI - 7.45YH FRIDAY 3RD MAY - 7.45PM

Shepherd Geth Roberts might be getting on in years, but he still lives alone, high in the Elan Valley above the market town of Rhayader. He is a born story-teller who has spent his whole life working his wild and windswept farm, hidden away in the timeless Cambrian Mountains beneath the awesome beauty of the Elan night skies, unpolluted by city lights. But now Geth faces his greatest ever challenge: his sight is failing and if he can’t see then his life has no purpose – he can’t work the farm or carve the exquisite Shepherd’s Crooks for which he’s famous. This one-man show is an emotive, tender tribute to hillfarming communities across Wales and their strength, endurance and determination to survive, even when the odds against them seem impossible. Mae sioe un dyn Peter Cox, wedi’i berfformio yn Saesneg, yn gynhyrchiad twymgalon ac yn deyrnged i gymunedau o amaethwyr mynydd Cymru.

The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (Bond) In C.G. Bond’s version of the old melodrama, Todd has some grounds for his wicked activities: his wife was abducted by the Judge and his daughter abandoned, while he himself was deported on a false charge. He returns to avenge his family, accompanied by a sea captain, Anthony, whose life he saved. Anthony falls in love with a young girl, the Judge’s ward, who turns out to be Todd’s daughter. Todd, meanwhile, sets up with Mrs. Lovett, the pie maker, and provides her with fillings for her pies. He proceeds with his vengeful plans, but the outcome is bitterly ironic. Cyflwynir Coleg Y Drenewydd y ddrama waedlyd hon - Sweeney Todd. Dychwelir Todd i ddial ar ei deulu gyda’i ffrind Anthony.

Having smashed the circumnavigation cycling World Record twice in his career, he now holds this 18,000 mile title in a time of 78 days and 14 hours, averaging 240 miles a day. Over the past decade, Mark’s epic documentaries have taken viewers to over 100 countries, into the Arctic, the high mountains and around the Commonwealth, also surviving capsize in the mid-Atlantic. Showing films and photography, these events are a fascinating insight into Mark’s career of adventure.

Rich Hall’s

‘ONE HOUR OF STONKING STAND-UP AND ANOTHER OF STOMPING HOEDOWN MAYHEM. THAT’S TWO TOP GIGS IN ONE FOR YOUR MONEY’ MAIL ON SUNDAY

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show begins its second leg of touring. There has never been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever. His BBC Four documentaries, most recently Rich Hall’s Countrier Than You and Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match and BBC Radio 4 series Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown have built him a new legion of followers, as has appearances on Have I Got News For You and QI. But if you’ve only ever seen Hall on TV, you’ve short-changed yourself. Amser i ymlacio yng nghwmni Rich Hall, cewch noson o gerddoriaeth, stand-yp a llond y lle o chwerthin! Noson i’w chofio!

The Hoedown begins as a withering dissection of Trump’s America, but ends up being a celebration of Americana. There’s stand-up, improvised ballads, cracking good musicianship, and ultimately a hilarious, foot-stomping, shit-kicking good time to be had by all. Even if you don’t own a hoe.

TELEPHONE Call the Box Office on 01686 614555 (see opening hours above). You can pay by credit or debit card. Reservations can also be made which will be kept for five working days. Hafren regrets that reservations not paid for within this time will be cancelled. Telephone bookings will be diverted to an answerphone for the 30 minutes prior to a performance to allow Box Office staff to serve personal callers. PRINT AT HOME TICKETS We now offer the option for online bookers to print their own tickets at home. You would just need to select ‘Print at home’ when you checkout and you will then receive an email with a pdf link to your tickets. If you click that link you will then be able to view them and then print them. Just bring them with you and walk straight to the auditorium. POST Address: Box Office, The Hafren, Llanidloes Road, Newtown, Powys SY16 4HU. Give the name of the performance, the number of tickets (including any concessions), your name, address and daytime telephone number. Enclose a cheque for the total amount made out to ‘Hafren-NPTC Group’ with the cheque card number on the reverse side. Add £1 to the total if you wish the tickets to be posted to you. REFUNDS & EXCHANGES Hafren appreciates customers’ commitment to the theatre in booking early for events and recognises that changes of plan can occur. On these occasions, if the tickets are returned to the Box Office we will attempt to re-sell them to another customer. This cannot be guaranteed as all of the theatre’s unsold tickets

will be sold first. If successful in re-selling the tickets, the Box Office will issue a voucher to you for use against any future booking. Credit vouchers can only be issued to the original purchaser of the ticket. It is regretted that, in line with most other professional theatres, cash refunds cannot be made on tickets already purchased. DISABLED FACILITIES There are five reserved parking spaces for Blue Badge holders near to the front doors of the theatre. Patrons in wheelchairs should enter via the main entrance. There is level access into the Box Office, Gallery Bar and Auditorium. Spaces for up to 6 wheelchair users are available in front of the main seating. This should be reserved in advance. Bright, tactile signs indicate the location of the toilets, including a dedicated toilet with wheelchair access. Please call the Box Office to discuss our hearing loop system. Headsets are also available on request. A large print copy of the theatre’s events is available on request. HYNT SCHEME If you need support or assistance to attend a performance at a theatre or arts centre then you may be eligible to join Hynt. Hynt is a new national access scheme that works with theatres and arts centres in Wales to make sure there is a consistent offer available for visitors who are impaired in any way or who have specific access requirements. For information on and how to become a member, please visit hynt.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01686 614 555. PARTY BOOKING RATES These are available for most performances to groups of 10 and over. One free ticket is available for every 10 tickets booked. Please confirm with the box office that the party rate applies to the performance you wish to book. For groups over 25, call Del Thomas, Marketing Manager, on 01686 614556 to discuss larger discounts. CASH MACHINE There is a cash machine situated in the foyer area just to the right of the main doors.

FFÔN Ffoniwch y swyddfa docynnau ar 01686 614555 (gweler uchod amserau agor y swyddfa). Gallwch dalu trwy gerdyn credyd neu ddebyd (isafswm o £10.00 ar gardiau debyd). Gallwch hefyd archebu seddau ymlaen llaw a bydd y rhain yn cael eu cadw am bum diwrnod gwaith. Mae’n ddrwg gan Hafren na all y seddau gael eu cadw os na fydd tâl wedi’i dderbyn o fewn y cyfnod hwn. Bydd eich galwadau i archebu dros y ffôn yn cael eu hailgyfeirio i beiriant ateb yn ystod 30 munud cyn perfformiadau er mwyn galluogi staff y Swyddfa Docynnau i ddelio gydag ymwelwyr sy’n cyrraedd. TRWY’R POST Cyfeiriad : Swyddfa Docynnau, Hafren, Ffordd Llanidloes, Y Drenewydd, Powys SY16 4HU. Nodwch enw’r perfformiad, y nifer o docynnau y carech eu harchebu (gan gynnwys unrhyw docynnau mantais), eich enw, eich cyfeiriad a’ch rhif ffôn yn ystod y dydd. Amgaewch siec am y cyfanswm a’i gwneud yn daladwy i ‘Hafren-NPTC Group’ gyda rhif eich cerdyn sieciau ar y cefn. Ychwanegwch £1 at y cyfanswm ac os ydych yn dymuno i’ch tocynnau gael eu postio atoch. AD-DALIADAU A CHYFNEWIDIADAU Mae Hafren yn gwerthfawrogi ymrwymiad cwsmeriaid i’r theatr trwy archebu’n gynnar ar gyfer achlysuron ac yn cydnabod y gall newidiadau ddigwydd o ran cynlluniau. Mewn achos o’r fath, os bydd tocynnau’n cael eu dychwelyd i’r swyddfa docynnau, gwnawn bob ymdrech i’w hail-werthu i gwsmeriaid eraill. Ni ellir sicrhau hyn gan y bydd tocynnau’r theatr yn cael eu gwerthu’n gyntaf. Os bydd y theatr yn llwyddo i ail-werthu’r tocynnau, bydd y swyddfa docynnau’n trefnu credyd i chi am werth y tocynnau, i chi ei ddefnyddio wrth archebu unrhyw docynnau yn y dyfodol. Bydd y trefniant hwn yn gymwys ar gyfer y prynwr gwreiddiol y tocynnau. Yn anffodus, yn unol â mwyafrif o theatrau proffesiynol eraill, nid yw’n bosibl gwneud ad-daliadau ariannol am docynnau sydd wedi’u prynu eisoes.
