The Group

Prosperous Dramatic Society, from the village of Prosperous in Co Kildare has a treasured history of community-based theatre for over 100 years. The group has a broad membership, ages 7 - 70+, and operates from its own magical 90-seat theatre in the centre of the village producing a number of plays each year and of course, it’s legendary Christmas Panto. The group actively supports many local charitable organisations and often partners with other local groups to bring drama to the wider local community. PDS is extremely proud of its members, many of whom are now All Ireland Award-winning Actors, Actresses, Stage Managers, Set Designers, and Directors, and the accomplishments that they have achieved through the spirit of volunteering and teamwork across generations.
