Supporting Artists

Jamie Beamish - Artist in Residence

Jamie Beamish – Artist in Residence

Jamie Beamish, a Waterford native, has been named the Theatre Royal’s first ever ‘artist in residence.’
Join Jamie Beamish live from the Theatre Royal as he talks about his highlights of 2021, including the massive success of Bridgerton, a return to Derry Girls, and becoming the first ever artist in residence at the theatre where he was first bitten by the acting bug, almost 30 years ago.

In the summer of 2021, Jamie started to create a new piece of theatre for and about Waterford. Jamie will also participate in an engagement and mentoring program with second-level students in Waterford during his nine-month stay at the Theatre Royal, passing on his expertise and experiences to the next generation of local theatre practitioners.

Your Visit

In the 220 years since the establishment of the Georgian playhouse which was subsequently adapted in the late nineteenth century to become the Theatre Royal we know today, Waterford has been renowned for its local musical and dramatic traditions.
The Theatre Royal, often referred to as “The People’s Theatre”, has been the traditional venue for this creative activity down through the generations.

As such, it is the home for long established amateur societies and has hosted the Waterford International Festival of Light Opera since its inception in 1958.
The Theatre Royal, as the premiere venue in the South East of Ireland, plays host to the best national and international touring artists and companies and, with the support of Waterford City Council and The Arts Council, is also firmly committed to supporting artists in their professional practice.
