  • Poster for The 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre

    We absolutely LOVE the poster that Ste Murray, designer, actor, photographer, obvious polymath, has created the poster and branding for the 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre. As if all that brilliance wasn't enough he even made a video about the process of creating this. He isn't specific about how many hours it took him... :) If you would like to see more of Ste, he'll be on stage at the Abbey Theatre on February 1st as a member of the cast of The 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre. Buy your ticket now and if you go the whole hog and pick up a premium ticket you might even meet him and bask in

  • We love this #TBT from The 24 Hour Plays in March 2014: one of many hand-written thank you cards from a DYT member that was given to each member of the creative and production team, and every audience member at last year's show. Dear Supporter of Dublin Youth Theatre, Thanks so much for coming to support us this evening, hope you're having a deadly night! Your support means so much to us. DYT is like a second home to us. There is no where else in the world full of such amazing people, & without support from people like you, it wouldn't exist. THANKS SO MUCH!! xx Adam, 18, Harold's Cross THIS is what it's all about. Dublin Youth Theatre

  • As our musical interlude in 2014 Camille O'Sullivan, a former DYT member herself, wowed the audience with a rendition of the Ship Song among others. Although we have announced the creative team for 1st February 2015 the musical interlude is always a closely guarded secret. An added surprise and bonus for all you generous people!
