Have you ever wondered what it is really like to be a part of a professional show? studio2stage brings together young musicians, singers and Irish dancers and turns their dreams into a reality! This show experience is like no other, it is a unique opportunity to learn, from the inside how a professional show production works and to gain invaluable experience to help you in your performing career in the future. You will be a member of the elite cast performing on stage for a full scale live show performance in August 2016.
Note for CLRG dancers and teachers: As discussed and agreed with An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha, dancers from CLRG schools taking part in studio2stage are NOT associated with each other. Producer, Jim Murrihy (ADCRG) will however be associated to any of the dancers that pass through the audition process and are performing for the week of studio2stage and the final show. However, Jim will not be adjudicating any world championships, qualifiers or USA feiseanna in the next 2 years.
studio2stage brings together the very best non-professional musicians and dancers and turns their dreams into a reality! Our world class musical director and choreographers will work together to bring out the best in each and every performer to create a full scale live show production. Dancers and musicians will witness first hand, life as a professional performer, experience living away from home, making new friends, immersing yourself in nine days of intense rehearsals and watching a full scale show production come to life! You will also learn about stage production, choreography, line management, the role of a tour manager, the role of a dance captain, musical director, what to look for in your first touring contract and more! Acquiring a sound understanding of the business of performance is an absolute necessity for any modern day performer. This will be an opportunity for those musicians, singers and dancers to have an insight into the world of professional show performance. The knowledge and experience gained of the performance industry will allow you to focus more readily on what is important to you as a performer.
