Panto Camp

We are excited to announce that Panto Camp will return in Summer 2020 and due to demand, we have added a second camp!

We are delighted to welcome back David Doyle (Director/Choreographer), Christine Scarry (Musical Director) and Camp Coordinator/Panto Production Manager, Sarah Brennan who will also form the creative team for our 2021 Panto.

The creative team will consider all camp children for the 2021 panto chorus but there is no guarantee that all camp participants will get a place in the Panto. Nonetheless, we can assure all children that the camp will be an extremely worthwhile experience for all young performers giving them learning opportunities in singing, dancing and acting with a professional team.

The camp will take place on site at the Watergate Theatre so participants will have the added excitement of working in a professional theatre environment for the duration of the camp. Students will also get the opportunity to showcase their work in a mini performance at the end of each camp week.

Places will be offered on a first come, first served basis and are limited to 50 children per camp.

Camp dates:

Camp 1: 29 June – 3 July

Camp 2: 6 – 12 July

Both camps will run from 10am – 2:30pm daily.

To book your place in panto camp, email Sarah at panto@watergatetheatre.com with your child’s  name, age and contact details.

Musical Theatre Intensive

We are excited to announce that we will be running a Musical Theatre Intensive this Summer for students age 13+.

The Musical Theatre Intensive Course will be devised and directed by one of Ireland’s leading professional musical theatre directors and voice coaches, Christine Scarry.

A graduate of the Conservatory of Music & Drama and the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Christine trained in piano and voice, and holds a first-class Masters in Theatre Studies from Dublin City University.
With over thirty years’ experience in professional theatre – as a performer and director – Christine has produced and directed productions at all the major Irish venues, including the Olympia Theatre, Cork Opera House, National Opera House, Gaiety Theatre and National Concert Hall, and in 2018 directed a new musical at New York’s Symphony Space, Broadway, following a short US tour.

She is in constant demand as a director and voice coach in equal measure … her private students are currently playing leading roles on Broadway, the West End and at the major Irish theatres, including the Abbey and Gate Theatres, and on various television shows.
She was a founding faculty member of the first-ever musical theatre degree course in Ireland, where she lectured in voice, acting and music theatre history, and continues to be active as a guest lecturer and masterclass facilitator.
Christine is Artistic Director of Red Alchemy Theatre Company and Founder/Musical Director of the female vocal group, Alchemy, who have just released their debut album.

MTI will take place on site at the Watergate Theatre so participants will also have the added excitement of working in a professional theatre environment for its duration. Students will also be given the opportunity to showcase their work at the end of the week in a mini performance.

Christine will be assisted throughout the week by choreographer David Doyle and coordinator Sarah Brennan

Places will be offered on a first come, first served basis and limited to 50 students per camp.

Dates:
Musical Theatre Intensive: 29 June – 3 July

MTI will run from 3.30pm – 8pm daily.
