Acting and Drama Lessons 

Our Drama class is a wonderful mix of skill development and fun. We will be working to engage students in imaginitive play, theatre games, story enactment and improvisation, all of which will help to develop confidence, creativity and foster talent.

 

This year students will be learning the craft of acting for film, as in term one students will be making their own short movies. In term two and three we will be focusing on acting for stage in our annual full scale Musical production.In addition to this, students will have the opportunity to enter themselves for examinations with The Irish Board of Speech and Drama.
