Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch was founded in 1989 when two of the oldest theatre companies in Wales at the time, Theatr Crwban and Cwmni Cyfri Tri, joined together. The main aim was to create Welsh theatre of the highest standard and that, mainly, for young people and children.
The company produces up to five productions a year – some to schools in west Wales, and others public performances that tour to theatres nationally and internationally. As well as this, at certain times, the company produces large-scale events / projects like Far Old Line Festival and the musical Cysgu’n Brysur. The company’s working language is Welsh.
The company has been on the forefront of developing international connections. Relationships have been made with companies, performers and festivals all over the world and the company founded Opening Doors Festival – Wales’ International Theatre Festival for Young Audiences. https://agordrysau.cymru/. Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch recognises the importance and benefit of working with other companies and businesses; the company has a successful track record of collaborating with a variety of partners.
Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch perform annually to over 24.000 children and young people. As well as this, Canolfan Arad Goch is known as a local creative centre and it is possible to book the building and its facilities for any event.
