Designed by Roger Evans, The Lir Academy’s Director of Short Courses and delivered by The Lir Academy’s Short Course tutor team these Saturday acting classes will focus on the core elements of acting training delivered at The Lir Academy.

The course will cover key elements of actor training including Voice, Movement and Improvisation. As well as stage acting the training will also include an introduction to screen acting.

The training will also introduce participants to classical and contemporary play texts, using both scenes and monologues to hone your craft, improve sight reading and how to break down a script into its component parts. This course aims to provide young actors with a taste of drama school training at conservatoire level whilst offering a broad foundational understanding of acting techniques.

The Lir Youth Academy will run over each academic year from September to May and will
be split into 3 terms:
• Term 1: September – December 2024
