|contact person||Christine Dukes|
|artistic policy||Formed as a result of a Community Play , this thriving Youth Theatre has gone from strength to strength in the 15 years since it was established. There are now over 50 young people aged 7 – 18 from villages surrounding Rhosllanerchrugog who attend weekly workshops under the direction of Christine Dukes, Artistic Director.
Since its’ formation, there have been only two Directors, a testament to the support the Directors receive from the parents and the community. In 2003, the senior section performed ‘Return to the Forbidden Planet’ not just in their home theatre, the Stiwt Theatre in Rhos, but also in Altena, Germany, thereby broadening the cultural experiences of its’ young members.
It is the resident theatre group at the Stiwt and with its’ junior and senior sections perform at least twice a year in the Theatre as well as community events in aid of children’s charities.
