Have you been inspired to try some acting yourself, what with all the Film Fleadh and Galway Arts Festival shenanigans in Galway this time of year? Galway Actors Workshop is holdling a six-week intensive course ideal both for picking up the basics of acting and getting out of the house to meet people. It is suitable for beginners or those who have not acted in a while and are looking to get back into acting in a relaxed, enjoyable, way.
The course covers all the basics through various games, exercises, and improvisations, and the main focus is on developing confidence, getting comfortable performing in front of others, learning how to create characters and settings, and most importantly, having fun. It takes place at the Anno Santo Hotel on Thursday nights from 7pm to 10pm, starting on August 3, and running for six weeks. Cost is €160/150 (student/unemployed ), with an early bird rate of €145/135 if you book before July 27. Call 087 237 3531 or email [email protected] to book.
