What we stand for

A place where you belong
Based in the heart of Cardiff, Sherman Theatre is Wales’ only Theatre of Sanctuary. Everyone is welcome here. We want as many people as possible to enjoy and take part in theatre, and we work hard to break down any barriers stopping that from happening. Our impact starts on our stages but continues way beyond, throughout Cardiff, Wales and the world. By empowering our communities to tell their stories we become a force for empathy, compassion and unity.

Your city. Your stories. Your theatre.
We exist to offer the people of Cardiff enriching emotional experiences that deeply resonate. We work with a diverse range of Welsh and Wales based artists to tell stories that reach and represent a broad audience. Sherman Theatre tells local stories with global resonance.

The engine room of Welsh theatre
We are a centre for artistic excellence, creating bold, bilingual and exceptional contemporary theatre. Through our industry leading outreach work, productions and artist development we are helping to build a dynamic and resilient Welsh theatre sector: an engine room of Welsh theatre fuelled by the creativity of our communities.

Changing the storyteller
We passionately believe that storytellers are the key to diversifying who is enjoying and participating in theatre. If we can change who tells the story then we can change the story itself. And if we can change the story then we can change the world.
