Youth Theatre Ireland

Young Critics Panel

The Young Critics is one of Youth Theatre Ireland’s longest-running and most innovative programmes. It gives young people the opportunity to see quality productions while developing their critical skills under the mentorship of international theatre critic and academic, Dr. Karen Fricker, and Youth Theatre Ireland’s expert facilitators. Our Young Critics come from 15 different youth theatres across the country and have worked together over the past six months. They have come together to participate in online workshops, visit the Cork Midsummer Festival, and now Dublin Theatre Festival to see some amazing shows, make new friends, and learn the art of theatre criticism.

For ages 12+

This Youth Theatre Ireland programme is funded by the Arts Council and the Department for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth.
