About the production

You do not need to have any drama experience to become a member of DYT. An Open Day for those interested in joining DYT will take place on Saturday September 24th from 11am to 4pm in the League of the Blind Hall, Hill St, Dublin 1, and auditions will take place the following week.

DYT only recruits new members once a year, each year an Open Day is held for prospective members to meet our current members and leaders and find about about the organisation.

This year the open day is Saturday September 24th from 11am to 4pm and takes place in The League of the Blind Hall, Hill St, Dublin 1.

At the Open Day you will be asked to fill in an application form and after the open day prospective members will be invited to attend a workshop audition, there are normally 15 – 20 young people in each audition where you will play some basic drama games and excercises and be asked why you’d like to join, the auditions are also held in September.

Competition for a place at DYT is quite high with roughly 100-120 young people auditioning for one of 35 places. We try to have a balance of boys and girls, from across the age range 14-22 from Dublin City and County. No experience is nessecary its more important that you have a great personality and are a good team player. You must be 14 by the end of September to be eligible to join.

If you are lucky enough to be accepted you would be expected to committ to attending the all of the first 10 weeks of workshops, held each saturday from 11am to 1pm October to December.

DYT is grant aided by The Arts Council, City of Dublin Youth Service Board and Dublin City Council, this enables us to keep membership fees to a sum of E100 per annum, members are expected to actively participate in members’ fundraising initiatives.
