Artist in Residence features on RTE
The wonderful work that our first ever artist in residence Jamie Beamish is doing with Transition Year students in Waterford featured on RTE recently.
As quoted from the RTE.ie website:
“The Theatre Royal in Waterford is over 230 years old but for the first time in its history an artist-in-residence is in situ at the renowned venue, as part of a programme of work which will continue until summer.
The honour of filling the seat fell to actor Jamie Beamish, who grew up in Waterford city and had his first taste of treading the boards in the Theatre Royal, and the role is one of many he has been filling lately.
Mr. Beamish has just finished shooting the third series of Derry Girls, while his role as Nigel Berbrooke in Bridgerton brought him to new audiences as the period drama was the most-viewed series on Netflix until recently.
Meanwhile, he has also finished work in Canada on a new western series, but his stint as artist-in-residence at his “home” theatre has brought him back to his roots.”
