Theatrix Theatre School is an acting, singing and movement experience for 4 to 16 years olds. It brings to children the magic of Dahl, Dickens, Lewis Caroll, C.S Lewis and many more. See them sing, act and dance through performances of all the great musicals and watch them grow in confidence. From pre-schoolers to our youth drama class we build in progression to ensure all children develop at every age.

Theatrix has been bringing acting to the stage since 2000 when our children first performed in St Johns Theatre in Listowel. Many years on with a broader geographical reach and with a reputation based on fun, inclusion, respect and creative directing we continue to do what we love – bringing the magic of theatre to children and teens.

Term & Class Times

The year is divided into a spring, easter and winter term with end of term performances for all classes. Classes are divided by age, with added flexibility for siblings. Weekly classes are held after school. End of term productions give the children the opportunity to perform to a supportive audience of friends, family and to the general public.
