CTO proudly continues its partnership with the Wales Millennium Centre by hosting the opening performances of the musical Tiger Bay.

Tiger Bay is a riotous family musical set in the docks of Cardiff at a time when coal was king. Filled with rousing music and a cast of unforgettable characters, Tiger Bay is a universal story of courage, reconciliation and love. With Olivier- and Tony-award nominated director Melly Still leading an outstanding British creative team, this short run will be a rare opportunity to be the first to see a major new international musical.
