Youth Theatre Company
Advanced Acting Course for young people in Temple Bar, Malahide and Bray
The Youth Theatre Company is the most advanced and intensive training for young people in the Gaiety School of Acting. Admission to the company is by audition for students who have attended at least one other course in the GSA programme. There are Youth Theatre Companies in Temple Bar, Malahide & Bray.
Throughout the year members of the company will not only expand their acting skills but also learn and experience first hand running a theatre company and creating a piece of theatre. Each year the company produces a showcase of new work created by the members from scratch at the end of term one and a full length production at the end of term three. Members will be involved in all aspects from fundraising to publicity, from writing to acting, from sound design to costume design and much more.
The Youth Theatre Company is led by theatre professionals and every year specialist professionals are invited in to do workshops with the members. Therefore it is a great stepping stone for young people who are serious about theatre. Many of our past members are by now themselves professionals in the business.
Participants of Youth Theatre Company can expect to:
- Experience first hand the running of a theatre company
- Experience all aspects involved in this from fundraising to writing, designing and acting
- Expand their acting skills by creating their own piece of theatre to be publicly performed
- Take part in a full length production in a professional setting at the end of the year
Students must audition for a place in the Youth Theatre Company. Auditions for the 2020 – 2021 Youth Theatre Company will take place in September 2020! Further details to be announced soon.
