Laois Youth Theatre supports opportunities for new experiences and encourages creativity and skills development. LYT members have the opportunity to travel to theatre shows, to network nationally with other youth theatres, to participate in local festivals, to collaborate with other youth theatre groups locally and nationally, and to prepare and presente an end of year performance. Established for over twenty-six years, many past LYT members have gone on to study and pursue careers in theatre nationally and internationally. New members are always welcome so If you are interested in drama, making plays, learning creative skills, and meeting new people, this is the opportunity for you.
Mountrath Youth Theatre was founded up in 2017 with the support of Laois County Council's Arts Office. The aim of MYT is to provide a safe environment where young people can gain access to the arts through a theatre training programme. The training allows participants to acquire new skills in performance and to develop their confidence and self-esteem. MYT offers its main service provision to young people in Mountrath and surrounding areas.
