About The Unknown Theatre Company

2015 has been a bumper year for The Unknown Theatre Company: we've...

  • performed several shows, including at the Welsh Proms, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
  • won the Glamorgan One-Act Play Festival, and taken two plays to the Wales Final Festival
  • worked closely and performed with an American company - McCurdy Theatre Arts
  • taken a show to the British All-Winners Festival in Woking
  • done a show about nature - in the open air!
  • performed a classic musical theatre show
  • Our junior group, the Unknown YoYos, staged extracts from Shakespeare...

And it's still only November!

We currently have a musical in rehearsal, a full length play, and two one-act plays going on in the background. And there's more in the pipeline!

Unknown Drama
Want to know the kind of plays we do at Unknown? We've cast our current plays, but if you'd like to know more about us get in touch, and maybe come along to one of our rehearsals.

See the Unknown Drama page for more info.

This is The Unknown Theatre Company performing the opening number from Dance of the Dragon at the World Festival of Amateur Theatre in Monaco in 2005.

Many of the cast went on on to study singing or acting at drama schools and music college and are now working as professional performers.
