Newtown Amateur Dramatic Society will be bringing laughs galore to cheer us all up with the first play of the season - Ray Cooney’s 'Out of Order'.

Ray Cooney is recognised as the ‘Master of Farce’, and there’s no shortage of farcical goings-on in this production.

When Richard Willey, a government junior minister, plans to spend the evening with Jane Worthington, one of the opposition’s typists, things go disastrously wrong.

The stage play is the latest production of the well-established Newtown Amateur Dramatic Society which has formed a part of Newtown's cultural fabric for almost a century.


Many of the actors have been members for decades while also showing the ropes to the latest generation of young actors who have fallen in love with stage and the welcoming group.

For the last few months members have met twice a week to rehearse and prepare for the stage play which is guaranteed to get some laughs when the crowds roll in later this month.

It is hoped as many people as possible come along and support the stage play which will be hosted at the club's famous theatre.

You can see the play at the home of Newtown Amateur Dramatic Society at Powys Theatre in Canal Road, Newtown, SY16 2DE, from Tuesday (November 21) to Friday (November 24) at 7.30pm, and on Saturday (November 25) at 3pm.

The play is directed by Charlotte Salter with tickets available for £10 (concessions £9) and you can book online at or by ringing 0777 976 2544 or 01686 623463.

The usual wine bar is available pre-performance and in the interval.
