A NEW performing arts school, the Star Performers College, is being nurtured by Wexford performers and theatricals Suzanne O'Leary and Sharon Clancy, with the aim of enabling students to get a post-leaving ertified course that will help them on their career paths.

'This post-leaving cert course will provide the students with the tools needed to pursue a career in performance or teaching. Star Performers College's training programme is a strong combination of performance techniques and traditional values,' said Suzanne.

Classes will include acting, dancing, singing, audition techniques, stage combat, presenting for TV and many more, as well as diet and nutrition, kinesiology, dance history and repertoire.

As well as being a post leaving cert course, there is also a course for Transition Year students.

Both Suzanne and Sharon have vast knowledge, training and experience in the world of musical theatre. Suzanne is a highly-trained dancer and choreographer, producing over 200 shows to date, and Sharon is a TV actress, and professional TV presenter who has starred on the West End.

Between them it has been their ambition to create a centre of excellence and performance here in the South East of Ireland that will be recognised internationally.

'Our vision for Stars Performers College is one where our students will complete a year like no other, training to the highest standard in dance, drama and singing,' said Sharon.

Joining them as their vocal coach is Chris Holland, straight from the West End production of 'Les Miserables', where he played the lead role of Jean ValJean.
