GSA Studio Suite

A Part Time Actor Training Programme

Please see our current response to the Covid-19 Pandemic here.

The Gaiety School of Acting has reimagined its part-time acting courses for 2020/2021. The Studio Suite is an audition only course for adults which will be divided into three levels, and three terms. Actors are expected to commit to all three terms of the course for their learning journey to serve them as best it can.

What can you expect in 2020 at the Gaiety School of Acting? Our classes will be smaller to allow for social distancing, and the amount of courses will be reduced. As a result, every course will encompass many elements of the Gaiety School’s whole repertoire. This means students will get the opportunity to experience a large variety of performance training.

Due to smaller classes, we have a strictly limited capacity, thus all classes are now audition only. Auditions will take place online between July and September 2020. The course will begin October 2020. Apply here now! Deadline for applications is September 25th. 

If you are searching for a shorter option for beginners, please see our Beginners course.

The 2 years at the Gaiety were some of the best years of my life. – Caoimhe O’Malley, Class of 2011

For those students who have completed the GSA Studio, it’s time to advance to the Stage. This course is also open to students who have completed equivalent training either at the GSA or in other training schools. The Stage will build on your core acting skills and supplement them with masterclasses from expert tutors in other performance disciplines such as dance, musical theatre and stage combat.
