Bow Street Set To Launch New Courses At Open Day
20 Mar 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Bow Street has announced that they will be launching a number of new courses at their upcoming Open Day on Wednesday, April 11th.

The Open Day will include a tour of the schools facilities, an introduction to the upcoming courses on offer at Bow Street, and an opportunity to pick the brains of Bow Street’s Creative Director Shimmy Marcus at a Q&A session on the day.

Some of the courses on offer include the 6 month Part-Time Screen Acting Course designed to complement the much in demand Full Time Programme for Screen Acting. During a tour of the facilities, graduates past and present will also be on hand to answer any questions interested students may have based on their personal experiences of studying at Bow Street.

Graduates of ‘The Programme’ have had great success in the last several years and ‘The Programme’ has gotten a reputation as a good casting resource for Casting Directors. Recent graduates Ann Skelly, Fionn Walton, Niamh Algar and Fionna Twamley Hewitt all received acting nominations at the IFTAs this year.

Shimmy Marcus, Creative Director at Bow Street said:

‘It is fantastic to see our graduates continue to make their mark on our TV and Cinema screens every year which is the ultimate testament to our training. We have 12 Alumni in the upcoming Black47’, 9 in Kissing Candice and 6 in Michael Inside. 2017 was also a busy year with 9 appearing in The Drummer and the Keeper, 7 in Cardboard Gangsters and 8 in The Secret Scripture.”

Marcus also commented on the success of their Young Screen Actor Workshops and Summer Camps with past participants Jordanne Jones (‘Metal Heart’), Dafhyd Flynn (‘Michael Inside’), Rob McCormack (‘Professor and the Madman’), and Lara McDonnell (‘Artemis Fowl’) all going on to build exciting careers for themselves.

“All the staff and tutors have worked really hard to build a home for Screen Acting in Ireland, nurturing upcoming talent while developing broader partnerships with the likes of Screen Training Ireland, Screen Directors Guild of Ireland and Spotlight. It’s great to see it come to fruition now.”

The Bow Street Open Day will take place on Wednesday, 11 April at Bow Street, 12/13 Bow Street, Smithfield, Dublin 7 from 1.00pm to 2.30pm and 5.30pm – 7.00pm
