The School of Performing Arts from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David will be bringing three theatre performances to Calon Y Fferi (Ferryside Education Centre) on 27th, 28th, 29th & 30th May at 2pm, 5pm and 7pm each day. All of the performances are created by Final year students from the BA Acting and BA Theatre Design & Production degrees.

2pm – “The Stories of Hans Christian Andersen.” – Suitable for all the family. 

This adaptation by Mike Kenny tells the story of the famous Danish fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen.  Many actors take on the role of Anderson at the same time representing the many sides of his personality.  He struggled with his family, his education and his place within society, he wanted to be a poet, a singer, a novelist, an actor……and throughout this story we see him question the world around him.

The script is clever and witty and interspersed with the storyline about Andersen early struggles to find fame and fortune. Come see some of his best-known fairy tales, such as the Princess and the Pea, The Little Mermaid and the Emperor’s New Clothes, come to life.

5pm – “Wave Me Goodbye” – Audience 12+ 

Extraordinary stories in an extraordinary setting.

‘This place anchors my heart. This place takes hold of you and will not let you go’

Time moves on, landscapes alter, memories fade.

When all is changing what remains?

Join us as we journey through the lives of those who find it hard to leave the air, the sea and the land of Ferryside. A collection of characters (you may or may not recognise…) navigate their way through the site and invite you to listen to their stories.

Written and performed by the cast, Wave Me Goodbye is an exploration of what it means to truly belong.

Directed by Carri Munn

7pm – “We The Jury” – Audience 16+ 

Join the Jury at The Court Of The Spoken Truth. Can you see the Truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

We the Jury is an immersive theatrical experience where the decisions you make affect the outcomes of the trial.

Innocent or Guilty? You decide.
