The Christmas Wish

Waterford Youth Arts is proud to present our annual Christmas Play for this year, The Christmas Wish. 

The play will be performed by the 15 to 19 year old members of WYA under the skilled guidance of Martina Collender who is the director and writer of this fantastic piece.

These talented young members are burning the midnight oil to give the performance of a lifetime, going to rehearsals three times a week to perfect this performance and countless hours of practise at home. Martina is a skilled playwright in her own right and very experienced in her field as she wrote for Red Kettle Theatre and the Comeragh Mountains Festival before joining WYA.
