we've gone from strength to strength and been incredibly busy performing
revues, concerts and musicals.
started out with just a few members rehearsing in a small room in a
pub and our first shows took place at smaller venues such as The Drama

2010 our membership had grown to over 80 members, we found our permanent
rehearsal venue at The Wesleyan Hall, introduced our Youth Academy and
performed our first production at Theatr Elli, which was the first Amateur
production in South Wales of Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story.
Since then we have performed a number of shows at Theatr Elli including
our 2011 shows the Disney’s High School Musical Junior and The
Producers. We have also written two of our own shows Once Upon A Time
and The Treasures Of Broadway, which proved hugely popular with our
