Tim Baker, Associate Director of Clwyd Theatr Cymru, has succeeded in obtaining the rights to adapt Gill Lewis’ novel Sky Hawk for the stage, as a musical for young people.
“An edge-of-your-seat wildlife adventure that tells a very human story of friendship, discovery and an incredible journey. I love it!”
Kate Humble, BBC Television presenter and RSBP President
It will play at Clwyd Theatr Cymru in a specially created installation, designed by Ruth Hall. School performances are available from 12 June – 5 July, evening performances on 27 June & 4 July. This project will also be working closely with The Dyfi Osprey Team at Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust.
Tim Baker said: “Sky Hawk has already won many awards and I am thrilled to be able to bring it to Clwyd’s stage and pleased to be working with Musical Director and Composer, Dyfan Jones, to create a new musical adaptation of this wonderful story.”

PRESS RELEASE 15 April 2013
Sky Hawk is Gill Lewis’ debut novel and was published to critical acclaim by Oxford University Press in 2011. It has been nominated for a total of 23 awards to date, including the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, the Red House Book Award and CILIP Carnegie Medal. Sky Hawk has been published in 25 languages.
Gill Lewis said: “I'm absolutely thrilled that Clwyd Theatr Cymru Theatre for Young People are taking Sky Hawk to a wider audience. It feels especially fitting as conservation efforts have encouraged more ospreys to nest in Wales.”
