Firedoor annual membership costs € 30 (€ 20 for unwaged).
It can be paid in person at a workshop or via PayPal, by clicking the “Donate” button below. Please choose the option “Send Money to a Friend.” when making a Paypal payment.

Patrons can also make a one-off donation this way, no matter how big or small.

- Access to weekly acting workshops
- Opportunity to be involved in Firedoor side projects — readings, small productions etc

- Insurance coverage during shows and workshops
- Umbrella benefits of Firedoor’s membership of Drama League of Ireland (access to their play catalogue for instance)
How Long is Membership?
Where Does The Money Go?
Paying for facilitators, paying for workshop space, paying for rehearsal space, paying for venues, technical expertise relating to shows, props, sets etc.
Does this Cover Workshops?
No, you will still need to pay weekly/monthly for your workshop attendance.
How Strictly will this be Enforced?
Fairly strictly. Newcomers obviously won’t be expected to fork out for membership until they’ve got a feel for a group. However if the committee feels an attendee is taking advantage (e.g. attending multiple workshops without a paid membership) then they will be excluded from the group until their membership is renewed.
What do you mean by ‘First round casting’?
Our aim when putting on a Firedoor production is to fill all roles with members of the group, and the initial casting process will only involve group members. However, under circumstances where a match for a role hasn’t been found within the group, Firedoor may invite outside actors to participate in a second round casting.
