About Us

April 4th 1993 saw the opening of the Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny by President Mary Robinson. It was a date and venue that would alter the theatrical scene in Kilkenny, bringing national and international performances to this intimate new venue and providing a significant venue where the arts could flourish.

Since it’s opening in 1993, The Watergate Theatre has staged national, international and world-renowned performances from Theatre to Music of all genres, Opera, Comedy, Dance, Musicals and much more. The purpose of the Watergate Theatre is to both entertain, foster talent and behave as a centre for creative and artistic excellence for those who access it so that their lives are enriched culturally. This will remain at the core of the Watergate ethos in the coming years.

Over the next weeks and months, the Watergate team and Board of Directors will spearhead celebrations to mark the history and story of the Watergate’s first 25 years. We will also celebrate the future which we anticipate will be as great and true to its purpose as the past.
