About us

Ysgol Theatr Maldwyn was established in 2004. The aim of the company is to provide an opportunity for the young people of Mid Wales to learn theatre skills: singing, acting and dance. The junior company meet on a Thursday evening at Banw Community Centre and the older group on a Tuesday evening at Glantwymyn Community Centre. There will be an opportunity for new members to join through auditions that will be held before the end of the summer term.

Since the school was formed, we have produced two original shows, "Crib, Siswrn a Rasel" and "Llwybr Efnisien", written by Linda Gittins, Derec Williams and Penri Roberts. The school has also performed the musicals "Nia Ben Aur" and most recently "Pum Diwrnod o Ryddid". We toured this show in 2009 to theatres across Mid-Wales - Theatr Hafren, Theatr Aberystwyth, Theatr Harlech, Theatr Felinfach and Ysgol y Berwyn Bala.

Here are some of the dramatic photos from our concert "Ar Noson Fel Hon" at the National Eisteddfod held at Bala in August 2009.

The photos can be ordered over the telephone:: 01690 348175.

The school has also performed numerous Christmas Concerts at Churches - Meifod, Machynlleth, Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant, Llanfair Caereinion and Dolgellau. A Concert at The Tabernacl Machynlleth was successful in raising funds for the charity Swazaid. We have also performed at the Milenium Centre in Cardiff.

Does anyone recognise these three?

I wonder what became of them??









Ysgol Theatr Maldwyn is the baby of Cwmni Theatr Maldwyn, which was formed in 1981 to perform "Y Mab Darogan" at the National Eisteddfod held in Machynlleth. Over the next 25 years the company performed various shows in theatres across Wales - "Y Cylch", "Y Llew a'r Ddraig", "Pum Diwrnod o Ryddid", "Myfi Yw", "Heledd" and finally "Ann!" at the National Eisteddfod held at Meifod in 2003. Many of the shows have been televised on S4C over the years.

Members of Ysgol Theatr Maldwyn have also taken part in the TV programme "Noson Lawen". The picture below is of the older boy's group filming at the Barcud Studios near Caernarfon.
