Theatr na nOg's picture


Theatr na nÓg is on a mission to ignite the imagination of the nation. We believe in the power of outstanding theatre to inspire life-long change, and enrich the lives of people of all ages. Rooted in the Welsh Valleys, we create original theatre in English and Welsh that inspires and engages audiences of all ages across Wales and beyond.

Our name means ‘theatre of eternal youth,’ and we bring this energy and passion to creating excellent shows that truly connect with audiences from Swansea to Singapore. We love bringing to life the stories of ordinary people who achieve extraordinary things.

We work with, and create original productions for, young audiences and schools, and we are also a regular provider of main stage work with appeal for a wide range of ages.

Theatr na nÓg was founded over 30 years ago to meet the needs of the community in West Glamorgan. We’ve come a long way since then, but our ethos has remained the same. We believe that people of all ages and backgrounds should be able to experience accessible, live theatre of the highest quality.

As a registered charity, we rely on the support on the Arts Council of Wales, private companies and other funders to make our work possible. Every year more than 16,000 young people and their families attend our educational performances.

We are an associate company to Wales Millennium Centre, and enjoy dreaming up exciting collaborations outside of the theatre world. Our growing list of collaborators includes the Natural History Museum (London), The National Museum of Wales, The National Botanic Gardens of Wales, Singapore Science Centre and The British Science Festival.
