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, provide an excellent basis for our young people to 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 respected Founder Principal Jill Williams, CATS is one of the most highly regarded theatre schools in South Wales. Gareth Mitchell is the Principal of Cockett and West Cross CATS. You will very often see this strong, dynamic team supporting each other in classes and during Production preparations. In addition to Jill and Gareth, students regularly work alongside Musical Directors Bethan Marks and Matthew Bawden, Acting Coach James Scannell with additional assistance from Hayley O’Malley, Amber Williams, Awen Jones and Dominique Jones. All part of the CATS team work ethic!

It is not only talent CATS has been nurturing but compassion, support and a positive attitude in their students. And for that, I cannot thank them enough. CATS has truly been the most amazing thing to happen to Mabli but us as a family and the community of Pontardawe.
