Senior Musical Theatre present 'On the Line' at Cork Arts Theatre

'On The Line' marks our Senior Musical Theatre class' return to live indoor theatre. After an extremely difficult two years, the CSS students return to the boards with a very unique piece of work. Using the songs from the student’s favourite musicals, Centre Stage School wish to address the social problems that surround technology and the precarious age of social media in which our young people are growing up. With dialogue written by playwright Katie Holly, this production was a real team effort; Producer Kerry Nyhan, Choreographer David O Connor, Musical Director Carrie Mullane, and Director Danny Buckley really wanted to give these talented students a safe platform to perform, and once again reignite the fire in their bellies to act, sing, dance, and tell stories. Artistic Director Aideen McAuliffe says 'Having such an inclusive and open creative process with these teenagers over the last few months has reaffirmed our belief in their brilliance and the positive effect that the arts can have on their social and creative development'. Centre stage School are delighted to be back and are very proud of their first post-pandemic production 'On the Line’. Tickets are available on for performances on Saturday February 12th at 7pm and Sunday February 13th at 3pm & 7pm.



Lucy has been attending Centre Stage since the age of 4.  I can’t thank the teachers and staff enough for all they instill in our kids; the talent, confidence & camaraderie inside those doors are so important, and it's a privilege for any child to be part of, and something which they’ll carry with them through life.

My daughter Aoibhe Lilly has attended Centre Stage for the past 5 years. The overall experience has been phenomenal. She has always enjoyed the high standard of classes on offer. Centre Stage offers a caring, nurturing environment, where love of arts is encouraged, in a place where children can dance, act, sing, laugh and have fun, making lifelong friends and memories. In Aoibhes own words 'It's my happy place'!

My daughter has been attending Centre Stage School for 4 years. She started with Theatre Tots and moved on ward from there. The musical theatre classes have been instrumental in the development of her self-confidence, as well as her great love for music and dance. The teachers and staff include and encourage all children of all abilities, and each child has a chance to shine. I couldn’t recommend Centre Stage School highly enough. Thank you to everyone there for the amazing work you do!
