We are delighted to announce that we will have an end of year Show at The Olympia Theatre on Saturday 18th May, 2019. There will be two Shows on the day, a Matinee and an Evening Show. This is a fabulous opportunity for all of our Students at The Lir Academy, and a number of classes at St. Matthews School in Sandymount to perform on what we think is Dublin’s Greatest Stage! Please check back here and School Social Media over the next 3 months and you will be fully versed in everything happening at NPAS! We have listed the Term Dates and Rehearsal Dates for Term 3 which starts Saturday 23rd March. Please note some changes and additions. See you at The Olympia!

For the SINGING AUDITION please learn a verse and chorus of the song ‘COME WHAT MAY’ from the Musical and Moulin Rouge. LINK HERE
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!!
