This program is designed for people aged 13 to 18 with an appetite for self discovery and a passion for acting! If this is you, then why don't you join us?
A great team
Sinéad Handy and Jay Origan have been involved in the arts for a number of years. Both are members of local theatre and musical societies. They have performed on stages all around the country, have also appeared on TV. So you can expect dedication and professionalism as well as a few good stories!
Under the guidance of these highly skilled facilitators, the participants will explore their self- esteem, self-reliance, self-worth, confidence, broader social skills, and tolerance in a safe and friendly space.
Some amazing creative output
The 8 FREE drama workshops that are at the center of this Youth Theatre programme are meant as a safe space to foster creativity and individual expression.
We want to encourage ensemble playing and experimental performance based on existing material as well as original content created by and with the members during the workshop.
It's not our first rodeo / workshop
90 young budding actors and directors have already taken part in the Youth Theatre program. Take a look at some of our workshop from past alumni of the Birr Youth Theatre and the Offally Youth Theatre.
