Ennis and County Clare are world famous as the home of Traditional Irish Music with year round music festivals and trad sessions throughout the town and county.

Testimonials

"Thank you so much to you all who did such wonderful work with Ella and all the other kids. We were so impressed and moved by the production and Ella was full of stories and excitement which has been missing from her life for a long time. It was the best therapy she could have had, worth every penny" Lucy Bingham, Parent, Dublin, July 2017

"This summer school is creative, fun and exciting, Well thought-through, artistically, educationally and administratively as a joyful learning experience for teenagers! I wish you every possible success with it, as I'm sure it will be! Lucky participants, something to really enjoy and look back on with pleasure and a sense of real achievement"

"Elena, 13, was the only Italian girl on Dublin's Teenage Stage 2017 and it was her very first experience abroad by herself.

She got to meet lovely new friends from Ireland and greatly enjoyed both rehearsals and free time.

The final show was just amazing and one cannot help wondering how those kids could prepare it in just one week.

It made us love Sweeney Todd, a musical that we had never properly appreciated."

Gianluca Di Lorenzo, Parent, Italy, July 2017

 "Sadhbh has been filling me in on every minute detail. She had a wonderful experience with you and benefited hugely from the opportunity to be part of the production of Sweeney Todd. The entire experience from start to finish (every detail of which has been shared in last 48 hours) was nothing short of superb. Less than 51 weeks to next year!  I'll be checking out the website for Teenage Stage 2018 and Sadhbh's name will be added to list as early as is humanly possible" Edel Meaney, Parent

 

"Emily had a great time and couldn't stop talking about the camp, rehearsals and her friends.  It was a big step sending her away and it was brilliant! We will be interested in next year so please keep us posted. We also enjoyed the show very much, it was great to see all the talents but most of all we are grateful that Emily was part of the group and felt included all the time" Izabela O'Brien, Parent

I would like to congratulate all at Teenage Stage. My daughter Holly had the time of her life and made fantastic memories and friends for the rest of her life. The staff were extremely supportive and friendly. I can not recommend this camp highly enough. Holly had no previous acting experience apart from school plays like most kids but felt at ease with others who obviously had a lot. There was no agenda and they all seemed to gel very well together even from 11 different countries. The show itself was amazing considering you had 6 days to put it all together and was as good if not better than some musical society's produce.  Congrats to all again and see you next year!

Bobby White, Parent, Dublin, July 2017

"Congratulations on a fantastic summer school. My son Harvey had an amazing time and is already talking about coming back next year!" Claire Dolan, Parent

 "I have returned from holiday and Sadhbh has been filling me in on every minute detail of her time in Galway. She had a wonderful course and gained hugely from the opportunity to be part of of Sweeney Todd. The entire experience from start to finish ( every detail of which has been shared for the last 48 hours) was nothing short of superb)
 Less than 51 weeks to next year!  I'll be checking out the website for details of Teenage Stage 2018, and Sadhbh's name will be added to the list as early as is humanly possible"
Edel Meaney, Parent, Tipperary, July 2017

"Natasha had an excellent summer school, it's done her the world of good and the production was brilliant, especially impressive as you only had seven days with them, thank you" Annemarie Walker, Parent

"I want to say a big thank you and congratulations for the fabulous week Emily had. She was happy from the moment she arrived and met her room mates right to the end of the production. She talked a lot about the whole week afterwards. She really enjoyed it and appreciated working with such a talented cast. Thank you for the work you put into making it such a successful week and amazing to think you achieved this in such a short time frame" Michele Royliston, Singapore

"Thank you for the email and opportunity for early booking. Nyika was so enthusiastic last summer, she really wants to participate again this year. I have sent in the booking form for her. We were equally impressed with the whole organisation, supervision and support of the summer school and have no hesitation to recommend it to friends" Rita, Parent, Carlow

"Cameron really enjoyed the concept of putting on a show in a week and had never done anything like this before! He was thrilled by the experience so thank you to all the very professional and caring team" Iris Campbell, Belfast
