Encouraging Children To Unlock Their Potential Since 1983
The holiday was set by ROMA TOMELTY and COLIN CARNEGIE, both of whom come from a professional theatre background, with credits in film and television as well. Staff are drawn from the same background, and the holidays have been running for 40 years, so we’ve a pretty good track-record of providing the right mix of fun and hard work! It’s not unusual to see some faces return year after year, such have been their experiences each summer.
Now Roma and Colin’s daughters, Rae and Hannah are happy to carry on the Summer Drama legacy and we can’t wait to see you next Summer!

Safety Is Always Priority
It is our goal at Centre Stage to ensure that your child has an unforgettable and rewarding learning experience.
Your child’s happiness and safety is our top priority. We pride ourselves in providing children with a memorable experience within an encouraging and safe environment.
We have a great team of professional actors, dancers, and musicians to lead the activities – so the approach is very practical – ‘don’t talk about it – do it…’ Yes, we do some Shakespeare – but Hamlet has been hit by a custard pie more than once!
We strive to provide an encouraging and safe environment for children to discover their creative potential. Our Summer Drama programme is intended to unlock students’ hidden talents and equip them with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in the creative industry.
Terms and Conditions:
The holiday happens in SLEMISH BARN – an exciting new custom-built residential holiday venue in the gateway to the famous nine Glens of Antrim, between Glenann and Glencloy and within the shadow of Slemish Mountain, the first home of St Patrick in Ireland, where he was held as a slave. Slemish Mountain, clearly visible for miles around, is really not a mountain at all – it is the central plug of a long extinct volcano! It also offered protection to the Dothraki’s camp when the nearby bog was used as a location for Game of Thrones.
