Navan Theatre Group is an amateur drama and theatre group based in Navan, County
Meath. We have a diverse and growing membership.
Since 1991 we have performed a full length play each November and more recently have
performed one acts plays in the spring. We are also committed to developing skills
within the group and this year we have commenced a number of workshops for members.
We rehearse in the Community Centre in Navan and our performances take place in Solstice
Arts Centre, Navan.
We would be delighted to hear from people interested in joining our group and assisting
with all aspects of our productions.
