SINCE September 2021, The Local Creative Youth Partnership (LCYP) based at Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board, has been working with a very dedicated team of young people to develop Kilkee Youth Theatre.

This performing arts initiative offers young people in West Clare a taste of performance and production for stage and screen and is presented in partnership with Clare Arts Office, Cultúrlann Sweeney and St Joseph’s Community College. For spring 2022 a new series of taster workshops has been organised.

For 9 to 12 year olds the workshops will take place from 11.30am to 1pm in Cultúrlann Sweeney, Kilkee Library on February 26, March 5, 12, 26, April 2 and,9 with the final session in St Joseph’s.

The 13 to 17 year old workshop is from 1.30pm to 3pm in Kilkee Community School on February 26, March 5 and 12,, to be extended subject to demand.
Facilitators for the youth theatre include Moyasta native Fiona Claffey-Kelly, Ennistymon resident, Jacinta Sheerin supported by a number of Clare based theatre artists each bringing a wealth of theatre training and expertise to group sessions.

Monica Spencer, Local Creative Youth Partnership Coordinator with Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board outlines, “As society embraces a return to social activities in the coming months, Kilkee Youth Theatre members look forward to sharing their work with audiences in West Clare. Young participants in the youth theatre will experience the creation of a new, short piece of theatre and become involved in some or every aspect of a production from performance, writing, improvising, directing, costume and make-up to poster design and publicity.

“Kilkee Youth Theatre offers an excellent opportunity for young people to enjoy a group activity that builds confidence and communication skills while having fun as we emerge from a period of little or no creative group activity.”
