THE brand-new Richard Mansworth stage school is set to open its doors in Portlaoise this September.
Following on from the success of his popular summer schools, Richard has decided to open a stage school on a permanent basis. It will provide a platform for students to gain from his extensive theatrical experience.
The school provides a vast curriculum, which includes the highest degree of dance, drama and vocal training as well as individual lessons on production progression and professional insight, and its teachers have a wealth of knowledge in these areas.
The teachers include Richard himself, who is an artistic director, and Mary Byrne of X Factor fame, who has also performed in Menopause the musical.
Full story in next Tuesday’s Laois Nationalist.
