The Lir Academy provides courses for young people through the Academy’s Young Actors Programme. It provides two programmes designed for young people aged 16 – 21 who have a passionate interest in performing or who may be thinking of applying to The Lir or a similar drama academy or have an interest in theatre and who would like to explore the craft of acting further.
The two week programme provides an introduction to the skills required to become a professional actor. The 4 week programme combines the 2 week course with the intensive Musical theatre programme and covers Acting, Voice and Movement. Mock auditons take place at the end of the courses.
