The Roscommon Arts Centre is looking for young people with lively imaginations to join them for ‘Playmaking’, their playwriting adventure for children aged 9-12. Working alongside Maisie Lee and Fionnoula Gygax, they will help make your story into a play.
You will spend two weeks at the arts centre this summer participating in exciting theatre-making workshops, before returning in September to finalise your script. Professional actors will then begin rehearsing the plays, which will be performed at both Roscommon Arts Centre and Backstage Theatre Longford/Aisling Festival in October.
This initiative is part of Backstage Theatre Longford’s 2019 Artist In Residence Programme, supported by Roscommon Arts Centre and Creative Ireland.
