A graduate of our prestigious Lyric Drama Studio, Megan McGarry teaches our P5-P7 and Year 8- 10 classes.
Megan also supports our projects throughout the year as Production Assistant during our annual NT Connections festival - where she also facilitates Masterclasses for participants from all across Ireland in Improvisation and Acting Technique. Alongside her work with the Lyric she is currently a classroom assistant for SEN pupils and brings a wealth of technique and a huge amount of experience working with young people to our team.
Mission Statement: The theatre is a magical space in which time stops and play begins. I aim to provide a safe, creative, and inviting space in which young people can be fully immersed in an exciting and colourful world that only they can see inside their mind.
With older classes there comes more of a focus on a young persons’ social and emotional wellbeing, as they navigate the twists and turns of being a teenager. In the world of drama, young people are provided with a beautiful cloak of invisibility that they can wrap around themselves, to allow them to explore their own thoughts and feelings about themselves and the world around them through the lens of the characters they portray.
It is my privileged position to help unlock the creativity of my students, provide them with the skills they need to approach acting and theatre making, and help guide them towards achieving their own specific goals.
