NAYD Young Critics - Applications Are Now Open.

‘Seeing the plays made me more excited about theatre, it made me want to go see more shows and to experiment in the non-acting elements of theatre when I returned to my own youth theatre.’  Young Critic 2013

‘[The Young Critics] Has improved my ability to watch theatre in a critical manner and my ability to write reviews. I met lovely people and made lots of new friends.’  Young Critic 2013

What is The Young Critics Programme?

The Young Critics Programme is now in its incredible eleventh year. One of NAYD’s most popular programmes, it is open to youth theatre members who are interested in watching theatre, discovering how and why theatre is made, and learning how to critically discuss, analyse, and review theatre.

Along the way they will see some incredible shows, make new friends and learn about the art of theatre criticism.

This is a very exciting programme and one where young people are given an opportunity to see quality productions, while developing their critical skills in a safe and encouraging atmosphere. This will allow them to develop their own critical voice and express their views in a confidant and knowledgeable way.

There are only sixteen places available to youth theatre members from affiliated youth theatres around Ireland. If you are in any way interested, we would encourage you to apply.
