The Senior Musical Theatre Company performs a musical theatre production every year. Senior Musical Theatre rehearses on Sunday afternoons in ITW Clonskeagh from 3pm-6pm for 10 weeks only in Term 2 (November though February). Students rehearse with a professional director, choreographer, and musical director. Extra commitment is required closer to the show dates.
Membership of weekly Dance and Creative Drama classes in ITW is essential for students who wish to take Musical Theatre, and a high level of commitment is required. As we get closer to the annual show, a greater degree of attendance at ITW is required as we also make props, paint sets, fundraise, and create costumes.
Senior Musical Theatre takes musical training to the next level with challenging harmonies, dance routines, and character development. We encourage each actor to become a triple threat in dance, voice, and acting, and we work with students to improve both their strengths and weaknesses.
Students in the Senior Musical Theatre Company are expected to research their shows, characters, and composers, and to treat the rehearsal process professionally. Many students go on to work professionally or semi-professionally in the Performing Arts, both while they’re still in school and after graduation.
Recent productions from our Senior Musical Theatre Company include Once on this Island Jr; Hairspray; Urinetown; and Into The Woods Jr.
