The National Youth Theatre takes place every two years and sees 20 youth theatre members come together to form the National Youth Theatre Ensemble. 16 young people will make up the performance ensemble, and 4 young people will make up the design and tech ensemble.
This is a wonderful opportunity for our senior youth theatre members to work with professionals in the theatre industry, learn new skills, and make new friends.
The ensemble will work together over the course of a year, and the project culminates in a production staged at The Abbey Theatre.
The auditions for the performance ensemble are as follows:
- August 20th, Dublin, The Lab on Foley St.
- August 21st, Galway, Macnas.
- August 27th, Dublin, The Fringe Lab.
- August 28th, Cork, Grafffiti Theatre.
