08 Jan 2020 : News Desk
The Gaiety School of Acting
The Gaiety School of Acting will be accepting applications for their Full-Time Professional Actor Training Programme until January 31st 2020.

The intensive two-year actor training programme is designed to prepare participants for work as an actor in Ireland and internationally. The Gaiety is searching for the finest talent who will dedicate two years to our proven conservatory training programme. Your body, imagination, voice, and intellect will be tested in an environment that is intensive, yet prides itself on giving excellent individual support.

At the Gaiety School of Acting, you will get the opportunity to work with tutors who are working industry professionals and experts in their field, as you are trained in all aspects of performance. At this school, you will be rewarded and challenged, inspired and empowered to make the best possible work you can make. At the end of your time with the Gaiety, the school will position you as close to the industry as is possible, while giving you the skills to make and create your own original and dynamic work.

Full-time students engage in an intensive regime of physical, emotional and intellectual training with a grounding in core courses. The school’s faculty consists of top practitioners who have trained at a myriad of prestigious international institutions. In addition to the core teaching staff, they also invite visiting professionals to host specialist workshops over the course of your two years with the school.

Your training at the Gaiety School of Acting will take in a number of core courses in addition to special projects. Many of these modules will culminate in the performance of public showcases and a graduation play.

First-year consists of ‘learning the language’ of acting: inner and outer awareness, performance principles and a full-bodied preparation for physical, intellectual and emotional growth. Second-year focuses on ‘speaking and practicing the language’: strengthening and tuning the actor’s instrument while maintaining a strong emphasis on performance and beginning to present the work to directors, casting directors and agents.

More information about course modules can be found - here.
