From student to teacher.

If it wasn’t for Theatreworx I would not be where I am today.

Starting at
the age of ten, little did I know how much of an influence TheatreworX would
have on my life. It was very hard not to get lost in all the fun and excitement
Theatreworx had to offer. There was nothing I loved more than attending my
classes every week, learning new dances, singing all my favourite songs, having
hilarious fun with all of my friends in drama and, of course, preparing for our
end of year shows.

I particularly loved when we were given the chance to perform excerpts
from shows such as Wicked, West Side Story, Hairspray, and Les Miserables. Working
on these popular Broadway and West End
musicals opened my eyes to the musical theatre world, learning from a young age
the process of auditioning, taking direction, dancing within an ensemble, learning
dialogue and acting through song.As my love for performance developed, Theatreworx provided many
opportunities to pursue this passion (professional Pantomimes, Musicals, TV
performances, Cabarets and LAMDA exams), nurturing and allowing me to find confidence
in my craft and opening doors for me to become more involved in Ireland’s
theatre industry. Claire has been such an influential and encouraging teacher. Her
guidance in my pre-professional, as well as my professional career, has been
extraordinary. Without a doubt, training under Claire, and alongside many wonderful
teachers throughout my years in Theatreworx, provided me with required skills
for a life in this industry, which I still use today. After Theatreworx, I went on to achieve my BA honours degree in Music
and Performance in NUI Maynooth and furthered my studies in Musical Theatre at London’s Associated
Studios. Performance credits include ; Orange
Girl in Shout the Mod Musical, Laura in The Look of Love: Music of Burt Bacharach, Legends in Concert - The Vegas Show (Stacy Walker, Travis Payne), Ensemble in Elements (Patti Wilcox),  Lead Vocalist in Band on the Run, Soul Rockin
Nights (Norwegian Creative Studios),
backing vocalist for Josh Groban - All
Echoes World Tour, Sharpay Evans
in High School Musical (Midas
Productions), Jewel in Aladdin (Theatreworx Productions), Let it Go Vocalist on the TV3 Toy Show (Theatreworx), Magician’s Assistant for Jorgos Magic in Times Square NYC, Singer/Dancer in Wilde Nights Cabaret (Dial M for Music). I am currently travelling
the world as a Production Cast Principal Vocalist for Norwegian Cruise Line
Entertainment in their headlining production shows. And now I'm delighted and proud to say that I am now the Director of Singing with TheatreworX from which I hope to encourage and nurture students to find the same love for everything TheatreworX has to offer, that I had. 

Loved every second of TheatreworX

I was a student with TheatreWorx for many
years and I loved every second of my time there. The teachers were excellent
and really addressed my needs as a performer. I was given help and guidance
throughout my training and was lucky enough to be presented with the
opportunity to do Helix Chrsitmas panto. I would highly recommend this stage
school to anyone who is considering it as a new hobby or if you are looking to
pursue it farther, as a career just as I did.

Inpiration, encouragement & fun!

funny how as a child our parents throw us into various activities, praying
something will eventually fit. I know my parents definitely did. I think I only
survived about two weeks of karate. But I joined TheatreWorx when I was seven
and something clicked. As cliché as it sounds I kind of found my calling. I
became so in love with performing, being one of those children who constantly
annoyed their parents by putting on silly voices and parading about the sitting
room. I was instantly hooked on theatre. I'm now going into my third year at a
Drama UK affiliated Drama School and loving every moment; every 40 hour week,
tiring rehearsals and stressful show week. I am absolutely living my dream. But
I would have never been able to achieve all that without TheatreWorx. It was
there I got to perform on my first big stage, it was there I was introduced to
The Stanislavsky acting methods and where I got the foundation of my acting
knowledge from. At TheatreWorx the students get the opportunity to do LAMDA
exams, giving them a taste for what an actual Drama School audition is like. I
achieved distinction in my final Grade 8 LAMDA exam and I knew I had to pursue
this career, work my butt off and get into Drama school. I got to tackle
monologues from Shakespeare to O'Casey and I just knew this is what I'd be
doing for the rest of my life. So I wanted to say a huge thank you to Claire
and all the teachers and students at TheatreWorx for all the inspiration,
encouragement and fun. And for starting me on my journey of becoming a
professional actor. I only hope more kids can experience what I did, and catch
that contagious bug for theatre.

Kick started my inner performer!

I am very proud to say that Theatreworx kick started my
inner performer. It was with Claire and the rest of the crew I learned not only
the basic skills required for on stage performances, but also performance
analysis, how to recognise well written monologues and plays but most of all my
confidence grew immensely. Theatreworx broadened my musical theatre knowledge
by teaching us a new and wacky showtune almost every week. Along with the
friendly and welcoming classes, the annual shows are what make it. Claire's
ability to give each student a fair chance on stage, boosts the confidence of
everyone on stage and she never slacks on the amount of effort and time that
goes into preparing the shows. Thanks to Theatreworx and the experience I
received I am now glad to say that I am currently studying Performing Arts in
the home of Irish Theatre, Galway. Where after one year I have so far worked in
the Galway theatre festival, the taibhearch theatre, the ISDA festival and I
also do monthly performances with Theatre Rooms.

Can't recommend it enough!

My daughter absolutely loves
Theatreworx - she used to be quite shy but has really come out of her shell
since joining a few years ago.  She enjoys all aspects of it - the
dancing, drama and singing.  She loves being on stage and gets a real buzz
performing in the annual show in the Helix.  As a parent, I am in total
awe of Claire and her team - they manage to bring out the best in everyone and
every child gets a chance to shine.  Can't recommend Theatreworx enough
for building your child's confidence and self-esteem and most of all a place
for them to have fun and make friends.

Best for personal development!

I studied with TheatreWorx for 6 years and across that time
I had the opportunity to learn from some of the top professionals in the
theatre industry. TheatreWorx not only offers the highest quality class content
but also an open and friendly environment where any child can develop
creatively as well as socially. My time with TheatreWorx provided me with a
springboard to go on to work professionally as an actor, producer and director
across theatre, television and radio. Claire and the TheatreWorx team have
continued to strive to offer the best opportunities for personal development
for every one of their students, without them I would not be the happy,
confident performer I am today! 

TheatreworX is FANTASTIC!

TheatreworX is a fantastic drama/dance school. For over ten years now, my
four children have been students and it has helped their confidence and self-esteem
grow so much. 

The work that the team give is 110% always, from the LAMADA exams to their
yearly show in the Helix, the students are so well prepared for

Nothing is left to chance, their commitment to the students is paramount and
never fallible. 

The team at Theatreworx is rock solid, they work incredibly well together
and I am   constantly blown away by their consistent enthusiasm and
non-stop energy! 

Having helped out back stage at the Helix shows, the amount of work that
goes into each show, is phenomenal, so organised on every front! 

TheatreworX also is one of the most inclusive dramas schools I have
certainly come across and their commitment to this is admirable! 

From a shy 12 year old to Performer

Theatreworx for me was the springboard to the life I have
today. As a shy youngster 12 years ago, Claire and the team introduced me to
experiences, opportunities, a great group of friends and instilled a confidence
in me which has allowed me to pursue what makes me truly happy, performance.
Being a student at theatreworx and being a part of some amazing productions opened
doors to a great many things , both in my early development as a person and professional
work as an actor including my favorite role to date as Reecey in Theatreworx
own production of ''Our House: The Madness Musical'' at the Olympia Theatre. To
this day Claire and everybody I've met through this theatre school have been
the most down to earth, welcoming and fun people to work with and learn from.

Since leaving I have gone on to not only work for Claire
in a professional capacity but was also fortunate enough to be accepted to
train at the Drama Centre London, which I feel is a direct result of having
spent so many years learning and gaining experience from the people and opportunities
at Theatreworx. Most recently I have performed in the London Irish Rep's
inaugural Season in Kilburn and am currently starring in Craig David's latest
music video ,with a documentary web series in post production working with
Replay Media in London. 

I owe a great deal to my time spent as a student at Theatreworx
and am delighted it has continued to grow and provide more and more students
with the same great times that I had growing up!
