Mountmellick Drama Festival has been in existence for over thirty years. The festival is firmly established as the premier event in the Laois and Midland’s Theatre calendar.
The Festival runs in the newly refurbished Mountmellick Community Arts Centre. The Arts Centre boasts a four-hundred and fifty seat Auditorium with a Michael Scott designed proscenium style stage ensuring perfect sight lines with a full view from every seat in the house. Seating is Pullman styled ensuring a comfortable evening for all patrons.
Mountmellick Drama Festival is renowned nationally as the friendliest theatre event on the circuit. The hosting committee will greet you each evening and are available to attend to your every need. You will have the opportunity to chat about the show over light refreshments and the interval and post-show banter that takes place each night is a theatre in itself. It is not unusual to see the audience, performers, adjudicator, and festival staff submerged in discourse long after the final curtain.
