Swansea Little Theatre Company are a registered charity with a membership of over 150 actors and technicians, all working on a voluntary basis to provide a vibrant and varied theatre programme, while managing the building. The theatre itself recently underwent a major redevelopment to improve its facilities and access, following the award of a substantial Arts Council of Wales grant.
