Youth Theatre - Leader call out for 2017-8 season

This year, NWTC celebrates the 10th anniversary of the creation of its Youth Theatre Group, and we are very proud to add this year’s “The Hobbit” to our long list of rewarding events so far:

2017:    The Hobbit

2016:    A modern take on five fantastic tales - stories from around the world

2015     What a song and dance
2014:    Peter Pan
2013:    Just Another School Shooting
2012:    Not So Fable
2011:    Moments of Emotion
2011:    Proserpina's Promise
2010:    Just Eat It
2009:    A Child's Christmas in Wales
2009:    The Battle for Peace
2008:    Showcase        
2007:    Dream 2007

Our Youth group has indeed gone from strength to strength since 2007 and benefits from a solid organisational structure and a formalised youth policy, with each new season based on a democratically chosen concept for workshop, show case and/or fully fledged performance.

A healthy waiting list has already formed for the coming year, so we need to determine the concept which is to apply to the forthcoming season as soon as possible.

The committee now invites all candidates to come forward with a concept for the forthcoming season (starting October 2017).

While our club constantly strives towards upholding its spirit of members mutually serving members on a volunteer basis, and the first priority would of course go to a volunteer based project, your committee is equally aware of the absolutely huge time commitment, responsibilities and personal expenses involved as well as the importance of keeping a youth offer going. The committee would consequently not be averse to considering a hybrid or a temporary non-volunteer fee based solution in the event that the alternative is to have to cancel the youth season for a year.

So, please do come forward with your proposal for a concept, whatever its characteristics may be, by latest 20 May 2017, by writing to A wealth of details on how our youth group operates and on what it has so far achieved is available on our website:

The early deadline will enable us to secure a venue for the new period.

On behalf of our theatre hungry youths, thank you.
