Be an Angel

Youth Theatre Ireland Angels are a club of individuals who believe in the values and positive outcomes of youth theatre. You can choose to give at one of three levels.

Local Angel—€100 (or €8.30 per month)

Do you think more young people in more towns in Ireland should have access to youth theatre? Be at the heart of what we do and help us to support and grow our network of youth theatres. Your donation will contribute to the cost of providing over 2000 hours of advice, guidance and mentorship to our member youth theatres as well as to new and developing groups each year. In this way your donation is put to work bringing the benefits and joy of youth theatre to young people in communities all over the country.

National Angel—€250 (or €20.83 per month)

Be an important part of the youth theatre community by supporting Youth Theatre Ireland’s national programme. From the annual National Festival of Youth Theatres, to our Young Critics programme, through to the provision of expert training courses for young leaders. As a National Angel you help to ensure that we can continue to provide national-level opportunities at no cost to young participants.

Guardian Angel—€500 (or €41.66 per month)

Be a big part of our future. Help us to dream. Help us to deliver our biggest projects including the National Youth Theatre where we showcase the best of youth theatre on the National Stage. As a Guardian Angel you can help us to provide young people with unforgettable experiences that inspire bright futures.


Along with the satisfaction of supporting Irish youth theatre, in return for your donation you will also receive:

  • Acknowledgement on the supporters section of the Youth Theatre Ireland website and in our annual Youth Theatre Ireland publication
  • Regular updates on our activities via our special Youth Theatre Ireland Angels e-newsletter
  • An invitation for you, plus a friend, to our annual Angel’s reception
  • In addition, National Angels will receive a complimentary ticket to the National Youth Theatre production*
  • Guardian Angels will receive a pair of complimentary tickets to the opening night of the National Youth Theatre and will be acknowledged in the production programme. Guardian Angels will also be the first to receive insider updates on the National Youth Theatre from the start of production to opening night*

*In years where there is a full production of the National Youth Theatre.
