Loughrea Youth Theatre is a performance-based group for ages 7-18. In addition to studying acting, singing and dance, LYT places a strong focus on team work, fun, personal development, self-respect and self-confidence. Each student is encouraged to reach their personal best in all areas and not in comparison with others.
There are no examinations or assessments throughout the year, but we do present several awards throughout the year.
Loughrea Youth Theatre strongly fosters an atmosphere of warmth, belonging and family. This is one of the reasons why LYT has been fully booked throughout its 21-year history and why many students do not leave until they grow too old!
There are two annual productions - a WinterMix concert in January and a fully-staged musical in July.
