Siamsa Tíre

Free Radicals Youth Theatre

Free Radicals Youth Theatre was set up to create a safe space for young people (aged from 15-20 years) to explore the world using the medium of drama. The group is a member of the National Association of Youth Drama (NAYD).

Free Radicals meet every Saturday (during term time) from 4 to 7pm in Siamsa Tíre, Tralee.  Our next terms kicks off in October, so why not come along then and see if this is the Youth Theatre for you?  Our Facilitator is Gerry Fitzgerald - an accomplished actor in his own right!

Free Radicals Youth Theatre follows on from Free Range Youth Theatre, which was officially launched in Siamsa Tíre in September 2008 and was set up by a group of people from Tralee, in association with Siamsa Tíre, who felt that there was a real lack of such opportunities for young people in the area.

The founder members of Free Range Youth Theatre were: Joe O’Brien, Michael O’Halloran,  Bryan Carr, and Deirdre O’Halloran in association with Catríona Fallon and Fran O’Connor of Siamsa Tíre.  Additional facilitators include Sharon Costello.

Free Range Youth Theatre acknowledges the generous support of Kerry County Council's Arts Office.
