Firedoor Theatre run weekly acting workshops focusing on creating a fun and inclusive environment and developing a wide range of performance skills.

Our workshops are run by experienced facilitators and cover a range of themes and techniques. Past workshops have covered Transforming into a Character, Improvisation & Creativity , Chekhov Technique and more.

We also run directing workshops from time to time, and provide opportunities for writers to have new works read and performed.

Summer Workshop

Starting on the 6th July we’re going to work on some good two-hander scenes(about 5-10 mins long) for 3 weeks.

All workshop participants will be assigned scenes to work on with a partner(s). Those scenes will then be worked on each week and performed with a discussion at the end of each workshop. Ideally everyone will work on a scene, learn the lines and by the end of the workshop bring it to a polished level by the last week, evolving over time.

6th, 13th and 20th July
Time: 7:00pm -9:00pm each of the 3 evenings
Cost: €30 payable in advance for the block of 3 for members/€40 for non- members.
