Young Performers Company

Advanced students can audition to join the Young Performers Company, where they will work with a group of highly motivated young actors, preparing devised and classical/contemporary scripts for performance, under the guidance of an experienced tutor/director. Each term culminates in a scripted performance. This course is suited to students who are experienced in drama and who wish to apply the skills they have developed through focused performance work. All students are asked to come to class prepared and to offer a full commitment to the 10-week term.

Please Note: Entrance is by audition only! .

Young Performers Company

Term Two runs 15th January – 19th March

The next auditions for the Young Performers Company will take place Autumn 2022.

The Young Performers Company is the highest level of actor training at the Gaiety School of Acting for children aged 11-15 years. Every year we audition for new company members. In order to audition, young people must have completed at least one term in another Young Gaiety course.

Auditionees will be informed of the outcome of their audition no more than one week after the audition. Once accepted onto the Young Performers Company, you do not have to audition for following terms. However, if you are a member of the 11-13 Young Performers Company turning 14, you will have to audition for the 14-15 Young Performers Company.

Please Note: Dependent on Government regulations on Covid-19 classes may take place on Zoom. We will update regularly here on GSA’s response to government Covid-19 restrictions. 

Participants of the Young Performers Company can expect:

  • Social, personal and artistic development through the medium of drama
  • Learning commitment and responsibility for the role they play and the contribution they make to the workshop itself
  • Freedom of creative expression in a fun and safe environment
