Kelly Shatter has been working as a professional actress and theatre maker since graduating from her performance degree in 2003. She most recently performed in An Triail which toured nationally.

Kelly has also tutored CTYI students in creative writing courses in DCU and these courses are supported by CTYI.
The most important aspect of this Drama and Playwriting course is that each participant feels that they can have fun and be creative in a safe and supportive environment. The drama will involve a lot of improvisation exercises where the material created will then be worked on and developed in the playwriting section of the class. The goal is to encourage each participant to have written a short one act play by the end of the 1st term. These plays will then be presented to family and friends as rehearsed readings.
Please note: There will be a max of 20 in the class so please get in touch soon if you are interested.
