A little about Theatr Yr Ifanc...

Theatr Yr Ifanc, Rhos 1990 Youth Theatre, has been providing Youth Theatre classes since 1990. The classes work towards a yearly production as well as offering students the opportunity to engage with other theatrical activities and such opportunities as The Children’s University. Theatr Yr Ifanc is a registered Charity and the Artistic team is supported by the Theatre’s committee of parents and volunteers and new people are always welcome to get involved! The classes run every Thursday evening.

A little bit of history...

Theatr Yr Ifanc was formed as a direct result of the success of a Community Show ‘Half Year End’ which was performed amongst the, then, ruins of the Stiwt, the Miners Institute in Rhos. As a result of a huge fundraising effort by people within the village, the Stiwt was rebuilt and a Youth Theatre formed in 1990 and was privileged to be part of the reopening concert.

Since then, the Youth Theatre has grown and gone from strength to strength under five Artistic Directors in its history since 1990 – Paul Drake (seven years), Christine Dukes (fourteen years), Lisa Van Der Horst (two years), Rob Stevens (10 years) and our current Artistic Director Laura, who has just finished her first year in the role.
