Little Theatre for children launches this weekend

A new drama group aimed at children aged six and upwards will launch at Pennyburn Youth Club tomorrow.

The Little Theatre group will offer fun drama classes for schoolchildren - with a view to putting on a pantomime in the city next year. The project is the brainchild of local theatre veterans Edmund and Majella Quigley, Colm Ferry, Aine McDaid and Jim Condren. Registration will take place tomorrow at Pennyburn Youth Club from 1-3pm. Classes will then take place on a Saturday afternoon (6-11 year olds) and on Thursday night (12-18 year olds). The cost is £2.50 a week.
