Welcome to CATS

A Class Act Theatre School

Class Act Theatre School (CATS) teaches children and young people the performance skills involved in drama, singing, movement and theatre arts. Being a CATS member, however, is more far reaching than that as ‘life skills’ including confidence building, team work and mutual respect between staff and students provides an excellent basis for our young people grow. We encourage every child in our care to achieve their very best and in doing so, develop a lasting love of Theatre.

The CATS ethos is based on quality, fun, innovation, inclusiveness, loyalty, discipline and strong ensemble performances.

Overseen by well-respected Founder Principal Jill Williams, CATS is one of the most highly regarded theatre schools in South Wales. Kayte Walsh is the Principal of Neath and Baglan CATS and Gareth Mitchell the Principal of Cockett and West Cross CATS. Jill directs the Pontardawe CATS students – but you will very often see this strong, dynamic team of three supporting each other in classes and during Production preparations. All part of the CATS team work ethic!
