Sherman Cymru, also known by its previous name Sherman Theatre, is a performing arts venue in the Cathays district of Cardiff. It was built as a twin-auditorium venue in 1973 with financial support from University College, Cardiff.
Within the premises are two performance spaces: the main auditorium with 468 seats, and the studio / arena which seats between 143 and 163 in the round. The Sherman Theatre Company and Sgript Cymru merged in April 2007 to form a new company, called Sherman Cymru, based at the Sherman Theatre.
It was announced in June 2009 that the theatre would be undergoing a £5.4m refurbishment, with £3.9m of that being awarded by the Arts Council of Wales. The building closed in 2010 and re-opened in February 2012, internally reorganised and with a new metal-clad facade. The redesign was led by architect Jonathan Adams of Capita Symonds Architecture.
