Mayo Youth Theatre (MYT) will have an open evening on Tuesday 10th of September from 6 pm to 8 pm in Ballina Arts Centre, Barrett Street for anyone between the ages of 14 and 22 who would like to be part of the theatre troupe.
MYT meets every Tuesday in Ballina Arts Centre between 6-8pm, members participate in specially designed drama workshops, specialist technical and performance workshops and of course trips to the theatre! But most importantly it is a high-energy group work and great fun!
The Youth Theatre is aimed at anyone aged between 14 and 22 with an interest in any aspect of drama, whether it is acting (for theatre or film), music, dance, sound, lighting, production management and scriptwriting. Established in 1999, MYT not only aims to facilitate the enjoyment of drama but also aims to promote, develop and support high-quality youth theatre.
It emphasizes personal and social development equally with the attainment of artistic excellence. In youth theatre, personal and social developments are as important as artistic quality.
The Youth Theatre aspires to create an environment where young people have the freedom to explore their imagination while developing their creativity and expression.
They will be exploring subjects important to them through creative expression while learning drama techniques.
It allows young people to develop their communication and artistic skills in a concentrated group with an experienced tutor.
