For over twenty years Spotlight Stage School has been nurturing the artistic talent of countless young people from all over the mid-west region, and it is recognised today as one of Munster’s premier training grounds for the next generation of actors and performers.
Founding directors Margaret Hough and Judy O´Connor have carefully overseen Spotlight’s development over the years, and the success of their diligence is borne out by the fact that a large number of current pupils are the children of past pupils. A valuable artistic tradition is being passed down from generation to generation, with Spotlight leading the way for pupils to develop self-confidence, self-expression and personal development through the medium of dance, drama and singing.
While training and performance play a key role in the running of classes, Judy and Margaret also place particular emphasis on the social aspect of the school. Throughout their years in Spotlight, many pupils have built up long and lasting friendships.
Each year the school stages an annual production in Limerick’s Concert Hall. This is the highlight of the school year and affords the opportunity for all the pupils to perform on stage. Students are also afforded opportunities to audition for local productions, film and television work.
SPOTLIGHT STAGE SCHOOL has two working terms in the year, Mid-September to mid-December, and mid-January to the end of May. Located right in the heart of Limerick city at number 97 O’Connell Street, Spotlight is a shining example of a thriving and successful business, meeting and overcoming the many challenges of our modern economy.
