Just to fill you in on the many events we have already planned for the upcoming year.
Beginning at 7pm this Wednesday 26th September, we will be presenting a Stage Combat Workshop by Paul Burke from the Gaiety School of Acting in Rye Hall Lecture Theatre, next door to the PACR. This is the first of a series of workshops that will be run this year in conjunction with the Gaiety School of Acting. It looks like an extremely exciting event (If you want to get a gander at Paul's workshop in action check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mklzvTBX5RA), However there is a limit of 30 places on the workshop and it will be first come first served, so make sure to get your name down on the sign-up list on the drama society notice-board quickly. Participation in the workshop will cost only €3.
Later on in the semester there will be a programme of 6 acting workshops run by Gaiety school tutors, the first of which will be on the 8th of October at 7pm in the rye hall lecture theatre. There will also be two directing workshops, the first which will be on Wednesday the 10th of October. Again there will be limited places availible in this new initiative, information about this will be availible on Fairs Day and at the A.G.M.
Ah and speaking of the A.G.M., it has been organised for 6.30p.m. on Wednesday 3rd of October the evening of Fairs Day (venue yet to be confirmed). So make sure to be there and catch up on all the drama plans for the coming year. Who knows, there may even be a pre-Fresher's Ball beverage on offer!
