Clare Youth Theatre (CYT) is an annual theatre programme for teenagers that seeks to give young people experience in all aspects of theatre from acting, to producing, technical experience etc.

CYT is led by the members and responds to their interests and issues affecting them through theatre and drama.

CYT has 20 teenage members who meet from 12.30-2.30 pm on Saturdays in glór, Ennis. In September 2021 a junior youth theatre group is being established catering for 10 – 12 year olds. This will take place in glór on Mondays from 3 – 4.30pm.

We encourage both personal and social development of our members within a safe environment and artistic freedom so members can explore their creative interests

We welcome everyone  of secondary school age. No prior experience is needed to become a member of Clare Youth Theatre. Hundreds of young people over the years have enjoyed their time at CYT and have made lots friends and friends for life while gaining valuable knowledge about the arts.

*A waiting list is in operation for the Saturday group. Places are still available for the Monday group. Contact clareyouththeatre@gmail.com to register your interest
