The Lir Academy - Young Actors’ Programme (Four Weeks)



The Lir Academy’s Young Actors’ Four Week Programme is designed to give young performers a taste of what it is like to study at conservatoire level. It combines our two-week Young Actors’ Programme with our two-week Musical Theatre Intensive Programme, replicating four weeks in the life of a full-time acting degree.

Designed for young people aged 16-21 the course is suitable for anyone with a passionate interest in performing, who may be thinking of applying to a drama academy or who would like to explore the craft of acting further. The course is led by The Lir Academy’s teaching staff and provides an introduction to the skills required to become a professional actor.

Group classes focus on the core skills of acting, voice and movement alongside individual voice, singing and monologue classes. The course also covers audition technique, monologue and song choice and delivery, ideal for any students intending to audition for drama schools, and ends with a presentation of work to friends and family at The Lir Academy.

Date, Time and Place

This course runs for four weeks every summer at The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art, Trinity Technology and Enterprise Campus, Pearse Street at Grand Canal Quay, Dublin 2.
