UCC Youth Theatre  

After a BUSY summer with UCCYT members writing a radio play, taking part in Graffiti Theatre’s ReadON project and hosting the Midsummer Meet UP with Cork Midsummer Festival, UCCYT had a great Autumn semester with over 14 new members joining in online for weekly theatre workshops.

UCCYT is very much looking forward to planning and producing a performance piece in 2021 and we open to new members joining in Jan 2021 who would like to take part.
