NEW Sunday Classes at The Lir

Performing Arts Courses at NPAS

This year at the School we are introducing our New Performing Arts Courses. These courses will be directed and programmed by Jill Doyle and Eamon Farrell the directors of the school. There will be a panel of teachers involved in the course, changing from week to week and subject to subject. The 1.5 hour class per week will include classes in Dance (Contemporary, Jazz and Tap), Musical Theatre, Drama and Singing. These courses will enable children and young people to benefit from everything our school has to offer in a smaller space of time and on a Sunday at the amazing studios at The Lir Academy. There is a huge amount of interest in these courses and they will have limited numbers and book out early. Students who take the course will be put in for Musical Theatre Exams with The Irish Board of Speech and Drama and will take part of the end of year show at The Olympia Theatre. The Courses will run for 3 school terms.

Teaching Panel
Nassim Missaoui, Emma O’Shea, Sinead Rowan, Aoife Dunne, Andrew Dawson, Hannah May O’Connor, Louis Maxwell, Lauren Walsh, Clodagh Forde.

Cost per 10 week Term of 1.5 hour Classes €155

Students must be available for full day rehearsals on Saturday April 27th, May 6th, May 11th and May 18th. For the singing audition please learn a verse and chorus of the song ‘Come What May’ from the Musical and Moulin Rouge. For the Acting Audition for 6-13 year olds please learn by heart the following Piece.


“I’ve always dreamed of being a hero. I’ve tried everything to become super.  I let a spider bite me… no spider powers; just lots of itching.  I tried standing too close to the microwave oven hoping the radiation would change me.  Nothing.  And I got in trouble for making so many bags of popcorn.  But I took it all to school and had a popcorn party.  I was a hero that day. So I guess it kinda worked.”

Thanks everyone, and good luck!!
