Welcome to the Glenamaddy Theatre Festival's website. We would like to thank you for your loyal support down through the years and welcome you to the current Drama Season. This year's Glenamaddy Drama Festival is proud to hold its 60th Anniversary.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the 2023 Confined Drama Finals which we were honoured to host. The Festival Committee would like to thank everyone who made this such a great festival. To the people on the Committee who worked hard before and during the festival, to our sponsors without whom the festival would not be possible, to our adjudicator Geoff O'Keeffe, to the groups
who participated in our festival and brought such a high standard to the festival and finally to our audiences who again came out in 2023 and supported the festival. We hope that you enjoyed the nine nights of excellent shows.
