Nenagh Youth Theatre has been our resident youth theatre since 2009 and every year they are here, they bring something new, vibrant and exciting to our venue. Hundreds of local people have either participated or attended youth theatre workshops or shows throughout the years. They have shot short films in our auditorium, used our outdoor area for site specific shows and performed several lives plays and pantomimes on our stage.
Nenagh Youth Theatre runs weekly workshops in our studio space every Saturday morning, 11.30am – 1.30pm. Workshops include acting, writing, comedy improv, physical theatre and lots more to accommodate the many talents and interests of the young people of Nenagh. Drama workshops are a great way for young people to feel apart of a team, its great for their self expression and confidence building.
As an affiliate member of the national organisation of Youth Theatre’s – Youth Theatre Ireland, participants have several opportunities to participate on a national level by attending festivals, workshops, youth conferences and camps throughout the year.
