Theatr Yr Ifanc Rhos 1990 Youth Theatre

Theatr yr Ifanc/Rhos 1990 Youth Theatre is a vibrant Community Theatre based in the heart of the Community. It takes members from all parts of Wrexham County Borough from the age of 5 – 21. It was formed as a direct result of the success of a Community Show ‘Half Year End’ which was performed amongst the, then, ruins of the Stiwt, the Miners Institute in Rhos. As a result of a huge fundraising effort by people within the village, the Stiwt was rebuilt and a Youth Theatre formed in 1990 and was privileged to be part of the reopening concert.

Since then, the Youth Theatre has grown and gone from strength to strength under 4 Artistic Directors in its history since 1990 – Paul Drake (7 years), Christine Dukes (14 years), Lisa Van Der Horst (2 years) and the current Artistic Director is Rob Stevens, like all three before him, well known in theatre circles within Wrexham, Chester and Shropshire. Rob is assisted by Leah Tyson and former TYI member, Dan Shenton.
They have a strong partnership with BSV Spielmannszug, Drupplingsen, Germany and have visited them four times, with the band making four return visits to Rhos.

The group meets every Thursday during school term time and is split in to three sections:
