Hi Pamela, Ciara, Sophie, Caroline and Karl 
We just wanted to thank you all for another amazing year at Take 2. Karl and I are so blown away with all the hard work you put into the show. I don’t know how you do it all and we appreciate so much everything you do. They all looked so happy on the stage. 
For us personally, we are beaming with pride that William was on stage and performed the show the way he did. It melts my heart to see him singing away and smiling and the fact that he remembered his moves. He kept it all a secret and would not tell us what he was doing!

Hilary & Karl

Hi Pamela, just a txt to say well done to the Take2 team for putting together such a wonderful show this weekend. Lara’s confidence has grown so much taking part in your stage school. Hats off to all the lovely teachers. We really enjoyed all 3 of the shows 💖💖💖

Hi Pamela

A quick note to congratulate you on an amazing weekend of shows. We went on Saturday night and were blown away by the show. So much talent on stage and more importantly the kids all looked so happy to be up there performing. It’s no mean feat putting on a show like that so huge thanks to you and all the Take2 crew for all the hard work. 

What a fabulous end to a really great year in Take2. 

Hope you can put the feet up and relax today and well done again. 

Huge thanks


Thank you so so much Pamela I really appreciate it and congratulations on the 35 years in the making!! 🙂

Hi Pamela

Well done and congratulations on a fabulous show.  Anna was in her element.  Thanks to all the team. 

Hi Pamela – just wanted to say a huge congratulations on the end of year performance.  We were blown away by each and every persons talent and the clear hard work and organisation that went on over the year and to produce something as professional and brilliant as it was. Jamie absolutely loves Take 2.  I was taking advantage of annual leave that needed to be used and cheap flights to take the boys to Portugal at the beginning of April. Jamie was really excited but when I said it would mean missing Take 2 he said he wouldn’t come.  Ian and I are delighted to see him loving it so much and being so happy it has made a huge difference to him. So huge credit to you on all levels.  we were so proud of Jamie (I saw it twice!) and so so so impressed by Take 2. We’ve seen Matilda in London and honestly Take2s was every bit as good!!! (am going to totally biasedly 😏 say Jamie and Gerry are our very favourite Blood Brothers too!!) but genuinely every minute was fantastic!!! Huge credit to you and your team!!!!

Karen Chamberlain 

Thank you Pamela and the team Erin is over the moon! Unforgettable experience for her and all her Take2 pals. Well done everyone 🥰👏

Hi Pamela, Sophie and Caroline,

I’m only getting a chance to send this now but wanted to say well done on such an amazing show especially with all the little stars ⭐️ on Sunday !! There was so much hard work behind it from you ladies and the biggest thanks for all your kindness to the little ones on Sunday and every Saturday. Eleanor loved it all !! She had the best time, performing and watching the “older” stars especially “Sponge Bob Square Pants” – and she now wants to have a mike and sing next time 😂. All the performers were just absolutely brilliant, it was such an amazing hour. The Hamilton scheme was so well done they were fantastic.

Show Testimonials

Take 2 Performing Arts school are hands down the top performance school in Dublin. It covers a myriad of disciplines, singing, dancing and acting to an extremely high level. It’s hard to believe that some of the members of Take 2 are as young as 4 years.

Take 2 put on a show in the Pavilion Theatre in Dun Laoghaire each years and it runs for two consecutive nights. The energy level of the performers is at a professional standard, the production is first class. It is a well-oiled and smoothly run show.

The interest and the devotion of all who work with the children is extremely obvious in this level of outcome. I feel it is not viewed as a job by all those who work towards the show but as a way of life. Congratulations to all on another brilliant success.

E Phelan

Pamela congrats to you and all your team on a fantastic show. The children were fabulous. I have been to 4 shows in the last fortnight – all adults- and it was so refreshing to be entertained by the children whose energy and enthusiasm bounced off the stage and their diction outstanding- better than any of the other 4 shows I attended recently.

Congrats again- gorgeous costumes, super singing, amazing acting and deadly dancing. Congrats all the take2 team. Enjoy the celebrations when you finish the ‘get out’. Love to all the girls.


Hi Pamela, just a short note to thank you and your team for giving Zara her 5 minutes glory! It has really boosted her confidence and she was shining last night after the show.Again many thanks for a great performance and in particular for making Zara a very happy girl. Kind Regards,


Pamela, I am sure you are shattered today. I just wanted to say many congratulations for the Show. It was truly fantastic. Such a huge amount of work put in by you (and all your team). Well done.

The boys and girls were just amazing. Stuart and I were so impressed at the amount of lines, dance routines, productions, costume changes that they had to grasp – and boy did they! They were really superb. We are of course extremely proud of Emma. She knew everything pit pat and really took to it. A good little dancer I think!!!! She loved every minute of it.I hope you are pleased with the way things went. Enjoy a bit of a rest!!! See you Saturday and many thanks and well done again.


They were fantastic …General consensus was the kids had such a fantastic weekend and loved every minute of it well done to you and your crew…. The show was great but more important the kids had a blast.


Hi Pamela, just wanted to write to let you know I thought both evenings over the week-end were a rip – roaring success. Huge congratulations and I am sure you are very proud of you young actors and your crew. I know Amelia adored it and I did walk away a very proud father. Amelia has thrived on your classes and guidance for I thank you tremendously. Best regards,


Pamela, Therese and all the gang, Congratulations on a fabulous show over the weekend. Really enjoyed it. All the cast looked so happy and full of enthusiasm on the stage. Isabel disappointed it’s all over for this year and looking forward to the next one.


Hi there just a quickie to say well well done, You did a super job with the show, Thought it was great, and most importantly both Lily-Mae & Skye thoroughly enjoyed both nights. Tks a mill,


Many congratulations, Pamela and all your fabulous team another resounding success. Really enjoyed it. Loved being back stage. Have a hugely deserved rest.

Hi Pamela, thanks for everything and the professionalism. Really appreciate how tidy you all left the theatre & delighted it was such a success for you, you’re ‘great’! We have so many dance & drama schools in. But yours is by far the best, because the kids genuinely love it and are having a great time, and that’s very obvious, so well done. Will definitely be recommending your school to all my friends. You’ve created a great team around you, whatever you’re doing – keep on doing it! Was so lovely to meet & work with you.

Simon, Pavilion Theatre

Pamela, well done to you and all your team on a super show this weekend! It was wonderful! Jennifer loved it all! Well done!.


Another wonderful show… Amazing costumes & very clever theme. Well done! Hadn’t heard Amelia’s song in full-a lot better than her kitchen version!
