Clwyd Theatr Cymru is Wales’ major drama producing operation, originally built as a Regional Arts Centre.
It is the home of a highly acclaimed producing company, which also presents much of its work on tour throughout Wales and the rest of the UK. The company produces mainly in English, but also in Welsh. There is a fully integrated Theatre for Young People department which uses the same performers, technicians and creative staff to achieve the same high production values as the mainstream product. The theatre also hosts a variety of touring drama, dance, music and a community Festival in the Summer. There are around 900 public performances per year. Clwyd Theatr Cymru is supported by the Arts Council of Wales and Flintshire County Council
Created through the vision of the old Flintshire County Council and its Chief Executive Haydn Rees, Theatr Clwyd was opened in 1976. Located a mile from Mold town centre in North East Wales, the building incorporates five performance venues: The Anthony Hopkins Theatre (580 seats), Emlyn Williams Theatre (250 seats), Studio 2 (120), multi-function Clwyd Room (up to 300) and Cinema (120). There is also a bookshop, a restaurant and three art galleries.Previous Artistic Directors have been George Roman, Toby Robertson, and Helena Kaut-Howson.
Terry Hands accepted the post of Director on 2 May 1997.The name changed to Clwyd Theatr Cymru in 1998 to reflect the theatre's new national identity and remit following the changes brought about by Local Government Reorganisation in Wales. In 1998 the theatre won the Barclays/TMA Theatre of the Year award and in 1999 was designated a Welsh National Performing Arts Company by the Arts Council of Wales
