Thommas received five star reviews across the board for his performance in his play "THE FATTEST DANCER AT ST. BERNADETTE'S" at this year's Dublin Fringe Festival playing the role of 'Julian La Blanc'.

Early December saw him and fellow agency actress Erikca Roe perform in another of his plays with The Breadline Collective "SAY NOTHIN’ TO NO ONE" which ran in The Project Art's Theatre in Templebar. "SAY NOTHIN' TO NO ONE" was awarded the first ever Stewart Parker Development Award back in 2017 having premiered in Dublin's Theatre Upstairs and toured nationally.

Breadline’s second production "WELL THAT’S WHAT I HEARD", also written and directed by Thommas, premiered in June of this year to critical acclaim. It is currently in development for the screen.

His other theatre credits as a performer include ‘Otto’ in “SPRING AWAKENING” (Ill Advised Theatre Company), ‘Oronte’ in “THE MISANTHROPE” (Irish Tour), ‘Leyton’ in “MY SECOND SELF” (No Tears Productions), and ‘Bill’ in Lee Coffey’s “TRUE PIRATES NEVER DIE”.

A trained singer with extensive experience in Musical Theatre and dance, Thommas holds an associate diploma of Guildhall, London (ATCL), and is also a very talented voice over artist.

Screen acting wise he made his screen debut in Conor McMahon’s cult horror film “STITCHES” starring alongside Ross Noble and Gemma Leah
Devereux. Other screen credits include ‘Kevin’ in “THE LETTERS”.
