As always, please remember that we are a not-for-profit organisation and that all assistance with fundraising and productions is gratefully received.  Would you like to be a youth theatre volunteer?  We badly need a Man with a Van and childminders during performances (subject to garda vetting).


Once your child has committed to taking part in a production please ensure that they come to all rehearsals and support their active engagement.


Please note that the dates and times above are subject to change.  Please refer to or contact the box office on 063-98727.  Tickets for performances must be booked in advance at Friar’s Gate Theatre.
