As Wales’ largest producing theatre, we make our own work. We are one of only four theatres in the UK to have all our making departments on site- in the company of the National Theatre, RSC and Birmingham Rep. This means that we can develop a show from the seed of a writer’s imagination. We also know how important it is to share these skills and support the next generation of creatives so that new and exciting theatre making can continue.
From the sets that you see on our stages to the costumes that our actors and actresses’ wear our teams can make them all. These are specialised skills and we are incredibly proud that they can be found in our corner of North Wales. Our work has been recognised by awards such as an Olivier Award and a UK Theatre Award as well as the thousands of people who come to see our work every year.
Developing future talent
The future of theatre and live performance depends on supporting new and emerging talent. Our artist development programmes are designed to give the next generation the support and space they need to develop their craft. From our Assistant Director Scheme to our apprentices backstage we support all areas of theatre making. During lockdown, when our theatres stood empty, George, a soon-to-be Royal Ballet student, practised on our stages as he didn’t have the space to dance at home.
A major outdoor production with a company of 256 people, we took over the streets of Mold to retell this story of Welsh oppression.
From stage managers and writers to knitting groups and stilt walkers there were roles for everyone to take part as we came together to tell this important story.
A donation to Theatr Clwyd helps us to continue to put art on our stages and ensure that more people have access to world class art.
