Hi Wyn,

Theres a group at The Sherman Theatre called The Sherman Players - they are performing 'As You Like It' in July. You could go along and say hello. Theres also another well respected organisation called The Actors Workshop run by Jamie Lee at Chapter Arts Centre and I run an adult Drama Group at The Talent Shack on Penarth Road  -The current term ends in early July but there are more projects in the pipeline. Good Luck :)

Hi, Wyn. Are you interested in meeting only fellow professionals? If so, Theatr Iolo or Hi-Jinx. Other Companies - Everyman Theatre, Cardiff (Amateur, but with a big reputation), Orbit (Music Theatre), Rogue'z. Hope this helps. Ray Thomas (Everyman Theatre)

Hi all!

National Theatre Wales are looking for a group of men to be involved in an epic huge event taking place this summer.
If your male, 16-41 then look here-…/performing-oppo…

It's be a great opportunity to develop skills in ensemble work and understanding of large scale work.

Deadline to apply is TUESDAY!

E-mailed you if I can help.

Writer wondering if any actors would help.

I have a play that won script slam many years ago and I have now developed further. Next Thursday 16th the script is being read as part of it's development.

I still need an actor or two to help read. The reading will be in Llanishen, Cardiff either mid afternoon or early evening. Probably last just over an hour.

The characters are both male, approx 50,  but any male actor over 30 would be fine for a reading. As I said this is not in line for production yet so this is purely a chance for an actor to enjoy reading and oil his wheels.

Please contact me through this website or at

Reminder of Ignite Theatre auditions tomorrow being held in Newport:


Cat is a young and vibrant primary school teacher, but a false accusation of assault on a child leads her to fear for her self destruction.


A new play that examines the line between education and parenthood. What happens when a parent points the finger at a teacher when their child has a social issue or behavioural problem, and how can this have such a damaging effect on their career?


This play is written for four actors multi-rolling ten roles and so we are therefore looking for the following:


Cat - (F, 24-28)

Kayleigh / Anna / Liz - (F, 24-30)

Joanna / Celia - (F, 30-40)

Rob / Neil / Rhodri / Paul (M, 30-40)


Auditions will be held on


Barnabas Arts House

New Ruperra Street


NP20 2BB


For the audition, please prepare a contemporary monologue that fits with the character and subject matter of the play. You may also be asked to do some in-hand script work and improvisation.


To CONFIRM attendance to the audition please email your name and the character you are wishing to audition for to


Please note: As a young theatre company, we do not currently have the resources to be able to pay actors an up-front fee. However we do work by profit share, where-by the 4 actors and writer will be compensated with 10% each of the ticket sales. We are therefore looking to work with people who are community focussed and able to work as part of a co-operative that will ensure the success of this production.
