THEATR NA NÓG / CYNHYRCHIADAU TNN PRODUCTIONS
Theatr na nÓg is on a mission to ignite the imagination of the nation. They 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, they create original theatre in English and Welsh that inspires and engages audiences of all ages across Wales and beyond.
Their name means ‘theatre of eternal youth,’ and they bring this energy and passion to creating excellent new work that is both authentic to their home in Neath, and is effective at connecting to audiences wherever they tour, from Swansea to Singapore. Their shows are of the same high quality, artistic ambition and professional standard for every audience – children or adults. Theatr na nÓg love bringing to life the stories of ordinary people who achieve extraordinary things. They work with, and create original productions for young audiences and schools, and they are also a provider of main stage work with appeal for a wide range of ages.
Theatr na nÓg’s most notable recent success was with their production of ‘TOM the Musical’ A story of Tom Jones which toured to 12 venues across the UK, played 83 performances to over 41,000 people. Theatr na nÓg was founded 35 years ago to meet the needs of the community in West Glamorgan. They’ve come a long way since then, but their ethos has remained the same. They believe that people of all ages and backgrounds should be able to experience accessible, live theatre of the highest quality.
As a registered charity, they rely on the support on the Arts Council of Wales, private companies and other funders to make their work possible. Every year more than 16,000 young people and their families attend their educational performances.
Theatr na nÓg are an associate company to Wales Millennium Centre, and enjoy dreaming up exciting collaborations outside of the theatre world. Their growing list of collaborators includes the Natural History Museum (London), The National Museum of Wales, The National Botanic Gardens of Wales, and Singapore Science Centre.
