Limerick Youth Theatre was set up in 1997 and is a company of young performers, dancers, writers, designers, directors, producers, and filmmakers.

The Celtic Con sure is something you don’t want to miss! Created by the Limerick Youth Theatre (LYT) in collaboration with Honest Arts and Lumen Street Theatre, it is a comedy play set in the medieval period.

It features Mícheál, who journeys through the kingdom on a quest for answers after the sudden death of his twin brother. Along the way, Mícheál encounters new friends and foes. With a druid named Lisín and buffoon King on his side, can he and his new friend Aoife save the village from disaster? There’s only one way to find out.

The Celtic Con runs on August 23, 24, and 25 and is premiering in the Belltable. Tickets are €10 for adults and €5 for those under 18. Be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Director Tara Doolan said of the show, “Working with Limerick Youth Theatre is always a rewarding experience. The members are always committed, enthusiastic, talented and hard working. 

“This year’s production started with a blank piece of paper and after four weeks of dedicated efforts, we had a full script to explore and consider. Thanks to their passion, contributions, and creativity, we have a show that is something they can be very proud of. This will be the first live performance for some of this cast and a most welcome return to the stage for others. Together, this ensemble is going to bring something really special to Belltable with The Celtic Con.”

Limerick Youth Theatre was set up in 1997 and is a company of young performers, dancers, writers, designers, directors, producers, and filmmakers who turn their dreams and visions into reality. People of all backgrounds are welcome to join. LYT runs a two-year training course in theatre and performing arts.
