Leitrim Youth Theatre

As LYTC Carrigallen drama sessions begin preparations for a new season, and heading into their tenth year in operation, numbers are up, currently catering for eighty young people at present.  There are a limited number of five places in the beginners group nine to ten year olds.  Children must be nine years of age on enrolment.  This class starts on Monday, 22 September 2014 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm for eleven sessions.  You can secure a place by contacting Maura at 0879036436 between 6:00pm and 8:00pm in the evenings. Some of the main focus of this work is giving children good communication skills, working as part of a group, plus theatre and performance skills.  In a world where children are so exposed to computers, television, phones, tablets, they are becoming more disconnected from basic communication skills with peers and within group situations, imagination, interaction and physical activity are limited.   Our drama workshops want to rekindle and restore this in children, giving them basic life skills, and set them up, prepared for the world outside.


Carrigallen Library opening hours are Monday 1:30pm to 3:30pm & 4:00pm to 8:00pm; Wednesday 10:45am to 2:45 & 3:00pm to 5:00pm and Saturday 10:00am to 1:00pm. Telephone no 0494339188.
