Included in this video:

Theatr na nÓg 

Theatr na nÓg had to cancel a production this year – Operation Julie. It’s a new prog-rock show which tells the incredible story of Operation Julie. It’s a co-production with Aberystwyth Arts Centre and was supposed to be performed live in July – August this year. Of course this couldn’t go ahead, so instead they had an online R&D and rehearsed the show over Zoom which you can see in the first image of the video! To finish the R&D they had an online readthrough and recorded one of the songs in the show – so make sure to keep an eye out for this in the new year! They would like to give thanks to Arts Council of Wales.

Wales Millennium Centre

The Beauty Parade was performed at Wales Millennium Centre earlier this year, just before the building closed! In this video you will see Festival of Voice, their international festival, which sadly was cancelled this year. 

National Theatre Wales

Hail Cremation! is a musical odyssey through the life of cremation pioneer, Dr William Price – a complex and extraordinary Welshman. Created by Jon Tregenna, this psychedelic fusion of live music, dance and video, will take you on a riotous journey to celebrate the life of one of Wales’ most visionary radicals! The production was due to open on the 23rd March but got pulled a few days prior to opening due to lockdown measures.
