Ticket Price:

Join the best youth theatre in the north west! We are now recruiting new members to join An Grianán Youth Theatre’s junior (ages 7 to 12) and senior (ages 13+) ensembles for our 2023/24 term. These auditions are for ALL members, both new and returning.

Auditions are on Saturday 2 September
Junior (ages 7 to 12): 11am
Senior (ages 13+): 12.30pm and 2pm


How much does it cost to become a member?
€180 for one year.

How much is the audition?
The audition is a free one hour workshop. You can register here.

When are classes?
Senior youth theatre classes are on Wednesday evenings, junior classes are on Thursday evenings.

How long is term?
Classes run during term time, September to June. We usually don’t have classes during midterm break or school holidays unless we are working on a special project. When we are getting close to show time we sometimes schedule additional rehearsal time in addition to regular classes.

I’ve never taken acting classes before. Can I still join senior youth theatre? 
Yes! Beginners are very welcome.

I’m 12 but already in secondary school.
Which class do I join? We recommend trying out for senior youth theatre.

What should I wear?
Our classes can be very active  – you should wear loose, comfortable clothes and suitable footwear. 

I’ve never had to audition before! What do I do?
Don’t worry – we like to think you are auditioning us as much as we are auditioning you. Our auditions are in the form of a group workshop which will give you a flavour of what a typical youth theatre class is like. You don’t have to prepare anything in advance.

In order to keep the quality of our classes high we like to keep class sizes small (on average between 15 to 20 participants) so sadly we can’t offer a place to everyone who auditions.

I want to know more!
