Theatr Colwyn holds special memories for me because as a primary school pupil I trod the boards here. It was about thirty years ago when I appeared in a panto, I think it was Mother Goose. Back in those days it was called the Prince of Wales but other than that not much has changed.
It's a nice if slightly small place. It seems to have suffered in recent years following the opening of the North Wales Theatre five miles down the coast in Llandudno but still attracts the odd name or half decent play. It also now doubles as a cinema to keep the money coming in.
Hopefully Theatr Colwyn will be around for years to come.
I also played here when I was at school. picture this; there are seconds to go before the curtains go back, the 'technician' drops the mike on your leg. you raise the ball of your foot to lift your knee and stop the mike falling on the floor. the curtains come back you start to play, with the mike kind of ballanced on your knee. and your leg starts to shake due to nerves. this is amplified terribly but you carry on and finish the song because you are to nervouse to sort it out and start again. man i was a bad performer. but i was young darn it. um anyway, this is a medium sized venue. they also show films in addition to the shows and pantos. a good community vibe. am dram i believe too. go and catch a show. support the theatre. popcorn available.
A quaint little cinema, across from Toffeeworld where one may purchase Sweets and Candies to consume during the performance. Lovely Jubbly
