Get yourself on the road to stardom at the Gaiety School of Acting

As mentioned on The Graham Norton show last Friday, Colin Farrell hasn’t graced the stage as a panto star but he has been through our doors, and you can too.

The Gaiety School of Acting – The National Theatre School of Ireland is now accepting applications for its Two Year Full Time Professional Actor Training Programme. The Gaiety School of Acting (GSA) has been training actors for 27 years. The two-year, full-time professional actor training course prepares actors for the theatre, television and film industries, so is perfectly tailored to those who are serious about becoming an actor.


This intensive programme gives participants a solid foundation in technique and an array of tools for beginning the extraordinarily rewarding journey toward becoming an actor. As well as Colin Farrell, graduates also include Charlie Murphy, Aidan Turner, Caoilfhionn Dunne, Stuart Townsend, Colin O’Donoghue and Olivia Wilde to name but a very small few.

But there are tons of other courses on offer for all levels, from complete beginners to experienced working actors. Term 2 of The Gaiety School of Acting’s 2013/2014 programme includes the return of well-loved favorites such as Introduction to Drama, TV Presentation Acting for Camera 1, 2 & 3, Page to Stage, Advanced Page to Stage and Stand Up Comedy.
