The Billie Barry Stage School
Parents and Students of the Billie Barry Stage School:
As per the Government guidelines and the initial announcement made on 12 March by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, the Billie Barry Stage School will remain closed until 29th March 2020.
(This date has since been reviewed by Government; pending announcement of a specific re-opening date for schools generally, the Stage School will remain closed until further notice).
We encourage all of our students to use their time wisely and keep up with daily practice. We’ve covered so much during classes in preparation for our Gaiety production so keep up the good work.
Stay safe everyone and take care! Please keep in touch with our Instagram and Facebook pages for updates.
