Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

Learn as much as you can in any situation that presents itself. Never be afraid to try something even if it scares you to do so. And give it all you have. Be a good listener and a good communicator and be fair.

Creative?
Creative
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art at Trinity College Dublin

Application Extended for Diploma in Stage Management and Technical Theatre

Application process for the Professional Diploma in Stage Management and Technical Theatre at The Lir Academy has been extended until 2nd May 2016.

 

We are still accepting applications for the two year level 8 diploma in Stage Management and Technical Theatre at The Lir Academy.

Applications are not through the CAO and we do not work on a points system.

Students are asked to matriculate as per the requirements of Trinity College Dublin but experience, talent and attitude are more important than qualifications for all courses at The Lir Academy and exceptions can be made when students don’t quite reach the matriculation requirements.

This course does however require at least six months experience either working in a theatre, on school productions, community productions, festivals, concerts or other outdoor events. Students will be trained in stage management, lighting, sound, prop making, scenic art, wardrobe and stage design and construction.

This is a practical course where learning by doing is the mantra. Students will work on 10 productions per year, one short film and one opera brief as well as gaining experience in one of Ireland’s leading theatres.

It is an extensive course that requires commitment and dedication.

Further information can be found here.

 Applications need to be in by Monday 2nd May 2016
