Ian & Beth Saunders
We started writing musical productions for young people whilst running a summer school in the Pontypridd area - our main goal at the time was simply to keep the young people entertained through the Summer holidays! We never thought that a ‘jungle song’ that we wrote over twenty years ago would carve out the rest of our careers - and what an exciting journey it has been!
As well as teaching we have also run theatre schools in both Welsh and English, namely Cwmni Drama Dan 5’, The Penderyn Drama Company, Cwmni Gwen and Brecon Youth Theatre. However we also developed the hugely successful Welsh language multimedia drama groups DAI y Bannau, DAI Pontsenni, DAI Nantgaredig, DAI Glanyfferi and will soon be running a new Welsh Language drama group in the Llanelli area.
Productions that we have directed and produced have been performed in the O2 arena and we have also worked on community art projects that have been exhibited at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff and the Waterfront Museum in Swansea. Our musical productions in both Welsh and English have been performed in numerous theatres and business clients have included S4C, ITV, BBC, Bwrdd yr Iaith and the National Museum of Wales.
