Kilkenny stars in the spotlight

The local Kilkenny stage school ‘Dramatic Action Stage School’ performed two sold out spectacular shows last Sunday in the Watergate Theatre.

The school runs September to June every Tuesday evening in The Kilkenny Rugby Club by theatre director and actor Rob Murphy. Rob’s parents are both from Gowran in Co Kilkenny and it’s always been a passion for Rob to bring the performing arts to Kilkenny after running stage schools in Dublin since 2007. Rob adores Kilkenny and is delighted to run classes for children in the area. Dramatic Action also prides itself on being extremely inclusive and a place where children can be who they want to be and express themselves through the performing arts in a fun and safe environment.

The show starred over 100 local children from the age of 3 right through to 18 years old and they were all amazing. The children train all year round in dance, drama and singing culminating in this stunning end of year show.
