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
