Overview

At this acting audition workshop, one of the core acting teachers at The Lir Academy, will guide participants through preparing for auditions, through careful selection of monologues and developing characterisation. This workshop will be extremely useful for those preparing for The Lir Academy auditions and/or any other drama school that participants may be applying to.

Good audition preparation is vital in order to showcase your optimum best within a very short amount of time. Typically drama school auditions last between 10 - 15 minutes so it's very important to be fully prepared and to create a good first impression, this course will offer helpful tips in achieving this.

Please bring monologues with you to this workshop so that the tutor can advise on the most suitable selection for a drama school audition.

While our intention is that all short courses take place in person at The Lir Academy; the health and safety of our staff and short course students is always our main priority. Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, delivering short courses in person is not always possible and in these circumstances, all short courses will be delivered online via Zoom. Please note that, as per our Cancellation Policy, no refunds or offers of deferral will be issued in the event of any short course moving online due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Please note that due to current Covid regulations, we will require short course attendees to present their EU COVID Digital Certificate (DCC) or HSE vaccination record. We also require photo identification. If you do not have a DCC or HSE vaccination record (because you are visiting Ireland from another country for example), you can use an official vaccination record issued by the country where you were vaccinated or tested for COVID-19.

Please be advised that patrons who cannot fulfil this requirement will be asked to step down from the course at this time and join us for a course after the regulations have eased at a later date.
