Let Us Entertain You

What a privilege it was to be back stage and (a little bit!) involved in ‘let me entertain you’.  The organisation and logistics were second to none, and that professionalism filled the kids with confidence & empowered them to nail multiple costumes and some very varied song/dance routines. It was fantastic to see such a positive and fun atmosphere among the kids behind the curtain.  Hats off to Joe & his RATSS team for a fab production.


London for me had to be one of the best experiences I’ve ever had with RATSS. Having everyone, even those who’ve moved on, back together for the entire weekend just brought us all that more bit closer. The musicals we saw on the West End were amazing and I’d definitely see them a second time. But for me the best part had to be, being together and just properly getting to know each other really well. It bonded us all together and I’d have to say it really made the weekend that much more enjoyable.- Adam Dunne

Audition Notices

We're casting for a new RTÉjr show TWO TALENTED and are putting a call out for talented children age 4-9 years to get involved. This is a great opportunity for younger children to get on the big stage, there will be no judges or criticism just family fun. Children can sing or dance and applications can be solos, duets or trios.
This child centred studio entertainment show will feature children performing on stage themselves and then, they will mentor a chosen adult family member to perform with them, this can be Gran, Dad, aunt, uncle etc. The show is all about the child star mentoring the adult, so family members just need to be willing to get on stage with them (not necessarily super talented).

Filming will take place in RTÉ studios Dublin, from July 16th - July 28th 2018. They will need to be available for one of these dates.

I have attached our call out which you can share, and the link to apply is

It's very straight forward to apply, you just need to upload a 40 second clip of the child performing and fill out the application form.

Applications close June 15th 2018

We will be holding auditions over the next few weeks so those interested should apply as soon as they can. If you have any queries, contact me on 01 284 3877 or 083 058 0229
