Junior Academy



A tailored programme in acting for talented young actors aged 15-17. Junior Academy is ideal for any teenager who has a passion for all things theatre related and is interested in developing this passion into further training or a career.

The course provides practical experience in voice, acting and movement, the three cornerstones of conservatoire training.

Taught by leading professionals, many of whom also teach on our Foundation Diploma in Acting and Theatre, and the Bachelor in Acting undergraduate courses here at The Lir Academy.

The course runs every Saturday from September through April. A limited number of places are available on this programme to ensure that each student receives the maximum individual attention. The course curriculum includes training in voice, movement, dialect, acting, ensemble work, Stanislavski’s system, and students will take part in a live performance for family and friends at the end of the course.
