Welsh Youth Performing Academy

The Welsh Youth Performance Academy are embarking on an exciting new project this year, taking place in Bethel Chapel, Maes Y Deri, Rhiwbina. 

After the recent success of 'The Magic Island' at The Gate Arts Centre, we have been commissioned to write a new children's musical 'Spin it to Gold' based on the brothers Grimm tale 'Rumpelstiltskin', to be performed by children aged 6-18 years. 


The piece will be created through a series of innovative workshops, where our cast of children will work closely with the composer, director and vocal coach to create an original piece of theatre to be performed in Rhiwbina.


Workshops will take place every Saturday afternoon, beginning the 13th February, 2-3.30pm for 6-13 year olds. The project will last for 12 weeks, with no rehearsals during Easter, culminating in two performances on the 24th April. 


We would like to invite all pupils to our free initial free taster session which will take place at 2-3.30pm on Saturday February 6th in Bethel Chapel, Maes Y Deri, Rhiwbina.
