PlayGROUND was a programme of free theatre programme for young people!
In 2022, funded by Cruinniú na nÓg, we invited young people aged 4-18 to join us in a free 7- week theatre programme in Tallaght. Participants were introduced to the world of theatre through performance, script writing, devising, directing, sound design, improv and drama games.
Workshops took place over 7 weeks, from April 30th 2022 to June 11th 2022. We had 4 time slots during which the workshops took place; 11:00 - 12:00 (age 4-7), 12:00 - 14:00 (age 8-12), 14:00 - 15:30 (age 13-15) and 15:30 - 17:00 (age 16-18).
