The most dramatic holiday you'll ever have!
Holiday weeks in July and August.
We have a great team of professional actors, dancers, and musicians to lead the activities - so the approach is very practical - 'don't talk about it - do it...' Yes, we do some Shakespeare - but Hamlet has been hit by a custard pie more than once!
We cover many aspects of theatre - improvisation, mime, choral speaking, working with texts, movement and dance, make-up - and musical theatre is not neglected either. If anyone has a favourite musical instrument, bring it along if you want to... and look out Andrew Lloyd-Webber!
Parents and friends make an invited audience for our fabulous end-of-the-week show, when everyone gets his or her moment 'centre stage'.
(We even have our own Oscar ceremony - Matt Smith and Nathalie Portman were said to have been devastated last year when neither won!) - where *everybody* wins!
Children can come for a week, week-end or even on a daily basis. Courses are residential and non-residential. The children sleep in comfortable accommodation, children and staff eat together, and we create a friendly holiday atmosphere. The breathtaking locations allow lots of space for informal outdoor activity - and we usually manage a trip to a nearby beach - in spite of the Irish weather!
We look forward to seeing you here
