Sligo Youth Theatre - Like A Mammy at a Feis

Sligo Youth Theatre present Like a Mammy at a Feis.

A lighthearted, witty and good humoured look at the competition element of the feis cheoil from the perspective of an Irish Feis Mammy. She is chauffeur, hairdresser, make up artist, choreographer and therapist. She carries her pins, glue, spare socks and energy bars but she has forgotten to brush her own hair or to eat a breakfast.

Like a Mammy at a Feis is a funny look at this hothouse world and the women who are the backbone of the competitions.

Shows from Wednesday 13th -Sat 16th August at 7pm. Extra shows on Fri & Sat at 3pm.

13 - 16 August
Venue:
Sligo Youth Theatre, Lower Quay Street.

NYT Lab

Would you like to take part in the NYT Lab this summer? NAYD is seeking applications from twenty senior youth theatre members who will participate in a week of drama workshops to develop material that will inspire the National Youth Theatre production in 2015. For the first time, we are also offering an opportunity for those who would like to develop their interest in theatre design.

In an exciting new partnership between NAYD and the Abbey Theatre, the national theatre is commissioning a play for young ensembles that will be premiered by the National Youth Theatre in 2015. The NYT Lab is the starting point in this process and the work developed in that week will provide inspiration for the writer who will also be one of the theatre artists leading the NYT Lab.

Fully funded by NAYD, this is a tremendous opportunity to take part in a week of youth drama, experimentation, creative risk-taking and friend-making at the end of summer 2014.

Find out how to apply.
