The Everyman Youth Theatre has been in existence for over forty years.  It currently meets every Sunday at 6:30 –  8:30pm, at Everyman’s home, Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff.  Anyone aged 11 – 18 years of age is more than welcome to join and participate in an inclusive, safe and creative environment .  It performs regularly and often tours to the Willow Globe, RSC Theatre Garden as well as performing an annual Shakespeare at the Cardiff Open Air Theatre Festival: Everyman.  The Youth Theatre were the 2022 winners of the National Theatre’s NT Connections, competing against other youth theatres throughout the UK.

Everyman Youth Theatre specializes in drama ranging from Shakespeare to the latest in new writing.  The Youth Theatre has an impressive alumni, with many former members being accepted into leading drama colleges throughout the UK and going on to establish impressive professional careers at the RSC, National Theatre and the Globe Theatre Company.  Many of whom have stated that their success and love of theatre stems from their experience with Everyman Youth Theatre.

Despite its impressive track record as a seedbed for a professional career in the performing arts, it is not its fundamental reason for being.  The Youth Theatre believes in providing its members the opportunity to gain confidence to communicate in public, work as a team and develop self-discipline as well of course, having fun and making friends.  Arguably the very foundations for any successful walk-of-life!

The Everyman Youth Theatre has been run by Sarah Bawler since 1996, she trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and continues to work professionally as an actor, writer, teacher and LAMDA coach.
