Welcome

Gorey Little Theatre Group has been running strong since the 1950′s. During our time we have put on countless performances. We host the annual South Leinster Drama Festival in which amateur drama groups from all over the country come to perform. From our humble beginnings we have undergone many changes in our venue, from our first home in Courtown Harbour to the fine modern 300+ seater auditorium today. We are always looking for new members to join the group and help out, whether it’s acting or backstage that you’re into, we’d love to hear from you.

Thanks

Mrs. Nancy Byrne

- President
