Our Background

We’re proud of the reputation that Musical Theatre Academy Nenagh has gained throughout the years - a place where students and instructors alike can thrive and make the most of their talents.

The Musical Theatre Academy Nenagh was founded in January 2016 by Stephanie Browne. 

We have over 350 students coming from Tipperary, Limerick, Offaly and Clare. We tutor children and teenagers from the ages of 3-19 in acting, singing, dance and acro. When Stephanie came home from London she could see the need for formal musical theatre training in Tipperary, so decided to open the academy. Classes are designed to instil confidence, passion and resilience in our students while also learning about all aspects of musical theatre in a fun, safe environment. 

All students take part in our end of year show and once of age, lots of students take part in competitions and performances. Here are some of our achievements:
