Tell us about your interest in the performing arts?
I have always loved singing, dancing and drama. I have been a part of multiple shows such as the Wizard Of Oz , Grease , Back to the 80’s and a number of performances with steptacular stage school

What is your role in the upcoming Stagecraft musical?
Miss Honey in Matilda, Narrator 1 in Aladdin.

What is your favourite bit about performing?
My favorite thing about performing would have to be the feeling I get when I’m on stage. After months of hard work it all finally coming together. The feeling of accomplishing something amazing that makes everyone happy.

Would you like a career on stage or behind the scenes?
I’m not sure yet. I definitely would love a career on stage but I don’t know if I have what it takes but I will definitely keep doing musicals even if it isn’t as a career.


Stagecraft Musical Group was set up in 2017 as a summer musical project by South Dublin County Partnership, in conjunction with Crosscare Youth Service Clondalkin, and supported by Lucan and Clondalkin Credit Union. The aim was to offer young people aged 14-18 in South Dublin free, high quality training in singing, dancing and acting.  This weekend at the Civic, they stage ‘A Night at the Musicals’ bringing  you on an epic journey through some of the most well loved musicals of our time with unforgettable scenes and songs from Matilda, Aladdin, High School Musical and Sister Act. A show which promises to entertain the entire family.
