Theatr Soar – Building a Creative Community
Theatr Soar offers a stage to a community, a resource to realise ambitions, and a space where the professional and amateur can captivate an audience.
Theatr Soar is part of Canolfan Soar. Canolfan Soar houses all the Welsh language organisations in the area, Caffi Cwtsh, Siop y Ganolfan and, of course, Theatr Soar, which is a bilingual, community Theatre.
Theatr Soar’s doors were officially opened in June 2011 with a launch event full of performances. Theatr Soar was a hub of community performances when local groups took to the stage throughout the Saturday afternoon, performing in both Welsh and English. Dafydd Iwan, Amy Wadge, Katell Keineg and local musicians performed and the first term as well as every term since then has been full of drama, dance, music, film, concerts, comedy and workshops.
Our termly programmes prove Theatr Soar’s aims and objectives – to open creative doors to everyone in Merthyr Tudful, whatever their linguistic background and to demolish the linguistic and cultural barriers that exist.
Discover your voice through the arts, whatever your language may be.
