Amateur theatre companies in Carmarthenshire

Updated: Feb 27, 2018

In Carmarthenshire there are lots of theatre companies that people can take part in a proper theatre production. One of these companies is the Carmarthen Youth Opera.

One of the companies main aims is to bring out talent and confidence of disadvantaged youngsters by getting them to perform and act in a professional, amateur production.

The company originally started up as a youth club in the late seventies but it wasn't until its groundbreaking production of Jesus Christ Superstar in 1986 that it really made an impact in Carmarthenshire. From then on, it won lots of awards and performed in theatres such as the London Palladium.

It is one of the most successful companies in Carmarthenshire and Wales as it has been responsible for launching the careers of people like Mr Go Compare Wynne Evans, Mark Evans.

For their next production, the Youth Opera will be performing Guys and Dolls which will be at the Lyric Theatre in Carmarthen during half term week.
