Like last year, we'll be live Zooming on Tuesday evenings, until we can return to work together in the same space hopefully later this year! Youth Theatre facilitators Emily Matthews along with Eimear Morrissey will continue to lead the group.

We will continue to work in fun and exciting ways exploring all things theatre, through improvised games, group work and the on-going explorations of themes of interest, just in a social distancing kind of way.  

Youth Theatre gives young people aged between 14-18 years a space to create, express themselves and explore ideas, every Tuesday evening either in person or on line. 

Please Note: D15 Youth Theatre Auditions usually take place in October of each year. Due to the ongoing health emergency and government restrictions, auditions have been postponed until further notice.
