Course Description

Performance Theatre Company (One Year Part-Time)

Gaiety School of Acting, The National Theatre School of Ireland

The One Year Part-Time programme is the most challenging part-time training opportunity at the Gaiety School of Acting. These courses are for the adult student who is committed to the pursuit of excellence in the field of acting.

Performance Theatre Company provides a practical educational experience in the production of theatre in an ensemble company format. The Performance Theatre Company is designed to nurture new performers and introduce the experience of producing ensemble theatre. The course educates students in a variety of theatre and performance styles.

Students will be involved in the onstage and backstage operation of producing each show and will experience the rewarding sensation of belonging to an ensemble production company for the duration of the course. Along with acting in each show, students will contribute to direction, design, sourcing of props, sets and costumes, marketing of each production and the devising of work where applicable.

Although ongoing actor training is provided where necessary, the main emphasis is on the rehearsal and preparation of the theatre pieces to be showcased at the end of each term. As such, the individual’s own artistic contribution to the work is expected and highly valued. Students are expected to commit completely to the ensemble and to apply their skills and tenacity as performers and members of the company.

Entry to the course is by application, interview and audition. Performance Theatre Company takes place from October to June, two evenings a week from 7-9pm. Students are welcome to audition for any level of the One Year Part-Time programme and can complete one level in isolation, or indeed complete the three years in succession.
