Kilmeen Youth Theatre is a new and exciting branch of Kilmeen Drama Group, catering for young people aged 14-20 years. Fledgling amateur actors will rehearse and perform short plays, skits and sketches, as well as getting involved with designing sets, props, costumes and lighting.

The weekly meet-ups will involve the exchanging of thoughts and ideas, with collaboration at the core of each session; there are no teacher-student relationships, simply young people creating their own work in a safe, creative space.

Kilmeen Youth Theatre will provide an opportunity for young people to gain valuable experience in performing, designing, stage management and working as part of a company. Furthermore, it aims to build confidence, improve communication skills and encourage freedom of expression whilst fostering a respectful, friendly environment.

Being involved with Kilmeen Youth Theatre is something that will stand out on any future CV. Drama can often be an expensive hobby but to join Kilmeen Youth Theatre all you need is €5 and a good attitude – everyone is welcome, regardless of previous experience.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
