Course Description

Study script writing, text analysis and character development – all vital elements for effective performance. Page to Stage focuses on the devising process and developing scene work for performance to a high level.

This course expands on the skills developed in the Gaiety School of Acting’s Acting for Beginners course –  or who have had similar drama class experience.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn to approach and work with text creatively – plays are meant to be performed
  • Be trained in how to approach text from the performance perspective
  • Experience the investigation, repetition and emotional and physical exploration that is part of rehearsal
  • Rehearse with scene partner: Imperative performance training – acting is a group activity
  • Gain a better understanding of the actor-director relationship
  • Bring scenes to performance level – and perform for an invited audience
