Drama Workshops - Online

At the core of the work of Waterford Youth Arts is our Drama Workshop Programme.


The workshop programme is broken up into three different age groups. Drama workshops aims to cover all aspects of drama and theatre work including character work, improvisation, story development, ensemble work, working with a script, etc. But more importantly workshops centre around groupwork; the approach places an emphasis on working as a team. Other very important aspects include developing young people’s confidence, leadership skills and making friends and having fun.

Our team of youth drama facilitators includes James Rockett. James Rockett studied drama at the Liberties College of Further Education, James has been working at Waterford Youth Arts for over fourteen years. He has worked extensively in theatre as a director, workshop facilitator and more recently a playwright.


This term Sinead Hourigan will be facilitating the 9 - 11 and 12 - 14 year old workshops. Sinead is an excellent up-and-comer having previously was the Assistant Director and Costume Designer of Romeo and Juliet.
