Kilkenny Youth Theatre

Paving Paradise – 2011

In May 2011, Kilkenny Youth Theatre with a cast of sixteen asked us what is our responsibility in taking care of our world? Chris has a headache, a migraine, he’s off form and now he has to work with the ’geeks’ of the school on an ‘Environmental Project’, you just know it’s not going to be his week…or is it?


A Vampire Story – 2010

Performed in April 2010 with a cast of eleven, ‘A Vampire Story’ played to full houses and gave Kilkenny Youth Theatre another successful run. The new girl in school Ella, befriends you and tells you she’s a vampire, is 200 years old and has survived by drinking human blood. Do you believe her?


Burying Your Brother in the Pavement – 2009

The story of one boy’s grief and its fantastical and theatrical journey, ‘Burying Your Brother in the Pavement’ ran in The Barn from 22 – 25 April 2009, with a cast of fourteen. With the cast involved in writing an original score, PR and design this production was truly a ‘theatre by young people for young people’.


The Exam – 2008

When KYT restarted after a hiatus The Exam was its first full length production, KYT went on to have an annual production providing ‘theatre for young people, by young people’.
