Theatre

An annual calendar of plays and shows by amateur dramatics and musical societies, presented to packed houses, are synonymous with County Kildare.  The shows rely on a strong voluntary effort and a love of live performance.   The opening of Riverbank Arts Centre in 2001 has extended the platform for performance in the county.

However, developing an audience for original plays and touring professional theatre and the provision of dedicated performance spaces countywide remains a challenge, both in Kildare and nationally.
