Well good afternoon!
I'm Rhian, and today's my first day at National Theatre Wales as Communications Assistant, and it's also my first day actually living in Cardiff!
For the past 18 months i've been a part of the team at Sherman Theatre just over the road in Cathays. I wore a number of hats over there from Digital Marketing Assistant to Ticketing and Reception assistant to Development Assistant. The varied role i held there has really helped me in learning more…Continue

I’m Dafydd Lansley but you can call me Daf. I’ve been a part of National Youth Theatre of Wales for over three years now and each year offers a new challenge to be faced. This is the first time we have ever remounted a production and on top of that we’re doing it in three days. Weirdly enough, it all came back to us pretty quickly on the first day. The wonders of muscle memory, eh?
We spent two days in the amazing Arad Goch Theatre and now we’re treading familiar ground in the…Continue

Hey Hey Heyyyy.!!
Katie and Naomi here!!
National Youth Theatre Wales Wooooop! And a a little bit of Ouch…. AKA today the bodies are a little bit achy.
So guys we did our first proper run through yesterday, exciting times! We got used to our foot patterns, Trolleys, Props and then added more to our dance sequences. We are just about to go into the theatre to tech the show after only two days! It has been tough but also amazing to be back into this madness.

Rhys’ Blog – dead born grow
WE ARE BACK!! This is the first time that I’ve ever remounted a show and its proving to be a real challenge…but still very exciting. 7 months since we last performed the piece its interesting how quickly everything comes flooding back…the body does remember (something Frantic assured us of last summer).
We started by recapping and re-remembering the major movement sections of the piece…which was simple enough to do…but finding the detail…Continue

Runners Up were BEDS a company from Bangor University with a play called One Flew Into Wonderland a weird and wonderful piece of…Continue

Festival under way and performances good. Majority of entries made up of new writing which is great and much appreciated by the adjudicator.Last night saw two completely different styles, first were a group called Pakala Productions with Washed Up which told the story of an author who was finding it difficult to separate fact from fiction. This was followed by an all female company called Offshoots with After the Flags and Bands about a group of young women who become friends at the…Continue
