The Senior Musical Theatre Society is for 3rd-6th year students and runs through Terms 1-3 in ITW Clonskeagh on Friday 6pm-7:30pm and Sunday 3pm-6pm. Each term will focus on a different aspect of Musical Theatre. Term 1 will be our production of PIPPIN with extra commitment being required closer to the show dates, Term 2 will consist of workshops and masterclasses with theatre professionals and Term 3 will put all of your new skills into practice with a performance comprised solely of extracts, songs and dances chosen by you.
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 our show in Term 1 and our Showcase in Term 3, a greater degree of attendance at ITW is required as we also make props, paint sets, fundraise, and create costumes.
Senior Musical Theatre Society 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.
