Galway Youth Theatre (GYT) was established in 1991 to provide drama training for young people between the ages of 15 and 26 from Galway City and County.
GYT provides a two year performance programme that aims to give participants training in various performance disciplines. Past participants include Tommy Tiernan and Paul McClusky.
GYT actors have gone on to work in theatre, advertisements and TV programmes such as Game of Thrones and Ros na Rún. GYT also runs an outreach programme in County Galway, where professional directors and actors travel to schools and work on tailor made programmes for post-primary students.
GYT is an excellent programme for young people to make new friends, develop their communication skills and build their confidence. Presenting two plays a year, participants work hard together to accomplish their goals in a supportive and rewarding environment.
