Quote from AOYT AD Anthony Kinahan:

“We are very excited about the upcoming year here at Act Out Youth Theatre.

Off the back of a very successful show (“deLIBERATIONs” in at the Solstice Arts Centre in April; a week-long residential in Kilkenny with Youth Theatre Ireland in July and a powerful Summer Project about Performing, Emotion & Resilience … our plans for this upcoming year are just bigger & better.

For young people in the Meath area aged 13+ that are interested in theatre, performance or expressing themselves artistically, it’s a great place to come along, meet like-minded friends & have a bit of fun while also being creative.”

Established in October 2017, Act Out Youth Theatre’s remit is to create quality theatre experiences with young people (13+) in the Meath area.  We are a not-for-profit charity, partnered with Solstice Arts Centre, Navan, Co Meath & partnered & supported by Meath County Council Arts Office.

We are also a proud member of the Irish youth theatre community and affiliated to Youth Theatre Ireland.

In the last few years, the members of Act Out have produced original, acclaimed plays (Inception, PROJECTions & deLIBERATIONs) in the Solstice Arts Centre; Stormed the Púca Festival; Had workshops with national experts, like Meath’s own playwright Deirdre Kinahan (The Unmanageable Sisters; Rathmines Road) & Casting Director Louise Kiely (Sing Street; Normal People); Participated in week-long residentials in Kilkenny with youth theatres from all around the country; Had various theatre-trips and much more … & all this on top of usual weekly workshops.

We provide an annual programme of activities, responding to the needs & interests of the young people, & we pride ourselves on our ethos of accessibility, diversity & inclusion.

Our main objective is to nurture the educational, social & personal competencies of our young people ensuring our activities are of benefit to the community, in so far as our work reflects local issues & community needs.

We aim to foster partnerships within the community & to advance the arts, culture & heritage of the area with young people at the helm.
