Welcome to Brennan Academy of Performing Arts and Stage Schools (BAPA!) Each term students work on various styles in dance and singing from musical theatre to pop and technique work – in drama-acting on camera, script work, character work and plenty of drama exercises that are a lot of fun, allowing students to be creative. All classes are done in a fun and safe environment, encouraging students to immerse themselves in the performing arts that have many benefits e.g. confidence, social and creative development. We are constantly introducing new material across the board and keep classes fresh & exciting for all!

The Aim of the Academy is to give children and young teens the chance to be the next bright new thing – learning a craft for life or just as importantly to become a more confident, more energised and all rounded young person who makes new friends and learns new skills in a fun and exciting environment.

Our sisters and principal tutors Noella and Laura (both professional actors, singers and highly experienced drama tutors) always speak of the amazing feeling they get from working with young students. "Every class is fresh, new and thrilling. We constantly see students discovering talents, excelling in performance skills and others overcoming shyness or a lack of confidence. Children amaze us with their capabilities and their personal achievements."

Another teacher in our stage schools is the very talented actor/director Ronnie McCann. He's a familiar face to many having been a regular in BBC’s Casualty for three years as well as working on EastEnders, The Bill, Doctors and Taggart to mention but a few. Ronnie is delighted to be leading the Acting for Camera workshops.

Students of our stage schools in Kildare and Meath also have the opportunity to audition for professional work through the Brennan Academy Agency. Please see our 'Student Success' page for a list of credits (ranging from TV productions to international films) that our students have under their belts. We also host annual shows in which students showcase their work over the last year to parents/friends and these are always eagerly anticipated. Each of our stage schools has it's own show so it's always an enjoyable experience for children and audience guests alike.

Brennan Stage Schools are here for you and your children, everyone has a creative side it just needs the opportunity to be unleashed, developed and expressed. We look forward to working with you all. Please feel free to contact us to discuss any concerns or queries you might have about enrolling your children in our stage schools.  We're a very welcoming theatre school and keep our core family values at the heart of everything we do.
