Curtain up on Capita's Cardiff theatre revamp

  • Comment

The Sherman Cymru theatre in Cardiff has re-opened following a £6.5 million refurbishment overseen by Capita Symonds

The revamp of the 1973 twin-auditorium venue included a new shell, redesigned foyer space, improved rehearsal space and a dedicated room for writers’ workshops.

The scheme was led by architect Jonathan Adams at Capita Architecture, who also designed the Wales Millennium Centre.

Theatre director Chris Ricketts said: ‘[The architect] has cleverly combined areas of new build with older parts of structure, transforming the building and giving us an inviting social space offering excellent and accessible facilities. Sherman Cymru has a special role in Wales to commission and develop work from the rich pool of Welsh writers and this next step in our history will be all about producing and presenting great theatre, telling stories that have a real resonance for the widest possible audience.

‘Our commitment to both English and Welsh language theatre and participatory events for young people continues and Sherman Cymru will be a special place to be for years to come.’
