unquestionably the best summer camp I have ever had the pleasure of letting my kids participate in. It is not only my own opinion, also my kids gave it a 10, Food, location and people. During the camp, they were focused, attentive and enthusiastic.

My 11 yr old just spent a week with your team this year, fantastic week from start to finish. First time away from home and she loved every minute. She is already talking about next year. Well worth it on so many levels, hard work, team work, confidence building and most importantly lots of fun. Thank you.

some recent Testimonials

"Thank you for the wonderful experience Niamh had on your ‘Singing in the Rain’ camp. It was the undisputed highlight of her summer holidays; a blisteringly busy week of fun, laughs and very, very hard work! It was so well organised and the pastoral care team were great at supporting and cheering on the students so they got the most out of the experience. I’m amazed at how much you managed to accomplish in such a short space of time and the show at the end of the week was a testament to that. Niamh is looking forward to next year’s camp already!" Niamh McCann, Parent, Dublin 2018

"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

 

"I just want to thank you and the team as Luke had an amazing time on your programme last week, he can struggle socially at times and the film course has been incredible for his confidence" Suzanne, Parent, Dublin, July 2018

I would like to congratulate all at Teenage Stage. My daughter Holly had the time of her life and made fantastic memories and friends. The staff were extremely supportive and friendly. I can't recommend this camp highly enough. Holly had no previous experience apart from school plays but felt at ease with others who had a lot. There was no agenda and they all  gelled well together even from 11 different countries!. The show 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.  See you next year!

Bobby White, Parent, Dublin, July 2017

"Wow, Sarah had a incredible time at your Acting For The Screen and Film making camp and has learned so much from the experience and your films in the on-site cinema on final day were top class! We will see you in 2019"

Erica, Parent, Malahide, Dublin 2018

 "I have sent three of my teens away on courses and always seen benefits but nothing to match yours in all honesty. The Gealtacht is lovely but three weeks is a long time and on reflection, your only young once! and Teenage Stage has a lovely balance of hard work and entertainment for them! Your show was amazing also! Thank you" Deirdre O'Brien, Dublin

"I had the most incredible time at Teenage Stage. Our teachers and directors took great care of us and were so friendly. Our year did  Into the Woods ". This was my first ever musical and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I've met life long friends from this experience. It takes hard work and dedication to pull off one hell of a show and without the help and support of our teachers we couldn't have done it.Not only do you do a show but there are loads of other activities and outings. You have karaoke, talent show, quiz night etc. Last year we went to see a fantastic Circus group in the Black Box Theatre. Thank you to everyone for a wonderful experience that I'll never forget! Emma McDonnell, Student

"I want to say a big thank you 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 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 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

We are now back in Venice after a wonderful time!
Emma and Nora have loved every single moment of the week they spent with you. They have enjoyed the company, the learning experience, the incredible team work and efforts in making 'Singing in the Rain jr' which was a marvellous show!
There were many tears shed on the day of departure and many, many: "see you next year"! 🙂

We wanted to thank you once again for the extraordinary experience you have offered them!
Francesca Niisi, Italy

"Wow! what I can I say, this was my first trip away from home and I appeared in a full musical theatre production, made fantastic friends and the evening guest workshops are even better than daytime if possible! Unforgettable" Lynn,  age 16, Student, Switzerland

"Thank you so very much for everything you have done and have come to mean for Lily – I cannot begin to explain how much she has gained from Teenage Stage. Just a couple of years ago she came to this country a shy and unsure girl. The confidence, teamwork, passion and ambition that you have helped nurture in her, is invaluable" Lisa Christopher, Parent
 I just wanted to to thank you and the staff at Teenage Stage for giving my Son a wonderful new experience. Benjamin  stepped out of his comfort zone to do this one week camp and was hooked by the end.
He describes it as "far better than I ever expected and I want to go back next year" So well done to you and the team. See you next year!
