Welcome to CATS Pontardawe

Pontardawe Arts Centre

A very warm welcome awaits your child at Pontardawe (Ponti) CATS. This beautiful Arts Centre has been our home for 20 years and we are so fortunate to be able to meet here for classes and rehearsals on Saturdays. 

Led by Founder CATS Principal Jill, whose passion for Theatre and Young People has always preceded her, your child will become part of a wonderfully supportive Creative Arts family as they experience acting, singing and movement in a safe environment.

Jill is well known for producing shows of an exceptional and professional standard with every performer feeling valued and respected. So much so that, from July 2019, Jill will be the Resident Director on Disney’s The Lion King Tour of the UK and Dublin.

Jill is delighted that her daughter Amber Williams, who trained at Mountview Theatre Arts, London, will be “acting” Principal at Ponti CATS when term starts on 7th September 2019.

Give Jill a call on 07967 133463 or Amber a call on 07794 862073 to discuss classes and availability.

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

We are delighted to be bringing this fabulous musical to the Arts Centre for a second time. In 2014 we had huge success when we staged this show and many of those cast members are now continuing their training at top Performing Arts schools in London or are embarking on a professional stage career.

"I’ve learnt more at CATS than I ever could have imagined”

I just want to say thank you for moulding me in to the confident performer I am today. I have learnt more at CATS than I ever could have imagined. Your passion and drive for theatre is an inspiration and I will cherish every single memory I’ve made at CATS. Xx
