Llanelli Youth Theatre was formed in 1984 by a group of youngsters, with a view to establishing a theatre company with a professional attitude. It was the result of demands made by young people who wished to present their own productions and work in all aspects of the theatre. Its aim was to present quality drama, while at the same time involving young people.

Since 1984 we have constantly been changing and developing our aims and ideas, but ‘Youth’ remains central to all our functions.

Today the Youth Theatre can boast to be a dynamic and innovative company that encourages young people to accept responsibility as well as to maximise their potential through raising their self-confidence and artistic potential.


We believe that ‘Youth Theatre’ is in a unique position to contribute towards the Personal, Social and Educational Development as well as the Creative Development of Young People
