The theatre Performance course provides a training in core performance skills. Classes and performances are centred in the college’s unique amphitheatre, and well equipped studio. The teaching practise in Kinsale is underpinned by belief in an ensemble approach to theatre. Classes are taught through practical workshop supported by discussion and reflection.

About The Course
This unique and long-established course has a reputation for being very different from other forms of theatre training. Whilst it provides a complete actor’s training, covering script work, improvisation, characterisation, physical theatre and devising skills, there is a strong emphasis on personal and artistic growth, alongside others, in an ensemble group experience.

The training is mostly practical. An accumulation of theatre skills, explored in friendly, non-judgemental workshops, lead to public performances that are renowned for their originality and extraordinary dramatic vitality. The drama course also integrates other strands of the arts to complement theatre experiences, so students who wish to develop visual, musical, dance or other artistic skills are particularly well-suited to this training.

Classes and performances take place in the college’s unique amphitheatre and well equipped studio as well as in outside theatres and site specific venues.
