The course is designed for young people aged 16 - 21 who have a passionate interest in performing, who may be thinking of applying to The Lir or a similar drama academy or have an interest in theatre and who would like to explore the craft of acting further.
The programme introduces young performers to the reality of intensive training, replicating two weeks in the life of a full-time acting degree.
The course will also provide an introduction to the skills required to become a professional actor.
Classes focus on the core modules of Acting, Voice and Movement and are led by The Lir’s core teaching staff. The course also prepares students intending to audition for drama schools covering audition technique, and the choice and delivery of audition monologues. Mock auditions will take place at the end of this course.
