Rusty Frog is WCAC's Youth Theatre for teenagers. Led by theatre facilitator Rónán MacRaois, the youth theatre is all set to produce original, high-quality and exciting theatre. The programme includes: weekly training workshops in acting, improvisation, stagecraft, voice, script work, street theatre, puppetry, physical theatre, clowning, dance, percussion, devising, writing, directing and technical skills. It also includes an Annual Theatre Production, Theatre Trips and participation in the national Youth Theatre Festival. Youth Theatre is a unique blend of youth work with a professional theatre approach - it builds confidence, creativity and communication skills. The YT programme focuses on the development and empowerment of its members as well as developing their theatre skills. No experience is necessary, just commitment.
Here is what some of our members have to say:
"Personally I love youth theatre. It offers me a chance to make new friends and I know I can express myself without getting judged"
"I really really enjoyed it, Its a safe space for acting and just expression in general"
"Its very fun and rewarding. I can be myself"
"I loved Youth Theatre. I felt it was a really great space to be in."
Rusty Frog Youth Theatre is supported by the Arts Council and Cork County Council.
