The Gaiety School of Acting, Dublin:
The Gaiety School of Acting - The National Theatre School of Ireland is Ireland's premier training facility for actors located in Temple Bar in Dublin city centre. Set up by Joe Dowling in 1986 due to the lack of availability of actor training in Ireland at the time, the school has since gone from strength to strength and now runs a wide range of courses for all ages. As well as it's two year, full time intensive actor training course, The GSA also runs year long part time actor training courses, short term part time courses for adults, courses for kids and teenagers and also a programme of courses for international students.

Full Time Actor Training:

Students of our Full Time Actor Training course will engage in an intensive, two year regime of physical, emotional and intellectual training, a wholesale cultivation of the skills demanded of a fully rounded actor.  Drawing upon a range of 20th Century schools of practice, students are given the opportunity to build a personal technique through an array of core courses.

Part Time Actor Training:

Our part time actor training courses are split into 3 levels, and can be taken in sequence to form a 3 year part time course. These courses represent our part time school at its most advanced level, and are targeted at adult students who are committed to the pursuit of excellence in the field of acting.

Short Term Part Time Courses:

Our short term adult part time courses range from a 10 week Introduction to Drama course, to weekend workshops in Musical Theatre, 8 week Acting for Camera courses, Stage Combat and lots more. These courses are designed to be fun and sociable, while at the same time building up the skills required to go on to further training.

International Courses:

We offer 3 different courses for international students: The Irish Theatre Summer School & The Irish Theatre January Term, which both focus on studying Irish writers for performance along with a programme of cultural outings. The Original Theatre Project is a process in which a commissioned writer and director will work with your students in both Ireland and in your home university to develop and stge an original piece of theatre.
