Good news! An Grianán Youth Theatre finally resumes regular classes again after our long, long Covid enforced hiatus. It’s all change with a new day, new times AND a new location.

All classes – that’s junior and senior groups – will now be on Fridays and we will be temporarily moving location to ZoNa Dance Studios until our new studio space is ready next year.

Our junior classes (ages 4 to 12) will be just after school time from 3:30pm to 5:30pm while our senior classes (ages 13 to 21) will be from 6pm to 9pm. Places on our junior classes are available on a first come, first served basis while we will as usual be holding auditions for our senior classes.

Auditions to join our senior youth theatre will be held on Fri 24 Sept at ZoNa Studios.

We will be holding small Covid safe workshop auditions of 30 minutes –  please prepare a short performance of no longer than one minute. 

You must register in advance to take part in the auditions.

The focus for our autumn term is going to be on getting back to basics. It’s a long time since we’ve all been together in a room so we’ll be learning how to work together as a group again and recapping all those essential skills to get us ship shape for our big 2022 project, a full cast production of comedy drama The Gentleman Pirate, written by senior member Niamh Langan, which will be our show for Cruinniú na nÓg in June 2022.
