Danny DeVito addresses acting students at The Factory.
The Factory on Barrow Street has announced the deadline for applications to its year-long screen actor training programme this Friday 3rd May, following a successful inaugural year that featured visits by a host of Hollywood celebrities.

The programme is based on a curriculum devised by acting coach Gerry Grennell who has worked in the past with such actors as Heath Ledger, Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Sean Penn and Natalie Portman.

The full-time syllabus covers all areas of performance for camera and development as a screen actor - with access to experienced professionals, shooting and screening facilities in the 13,000 square feet of studio space in the Factory, overlooking Grand Canal Dock.

According to Ms Muireann O'Neill, nearly half of year one participants have already been cast in productions including ‘How to be Happy’, ‘Love/Hate’, ‘Raw’, ‘Deception’, ‘A Thousand Times Goodnight’ starring Juliette Binoche, ‘Quirke’ starring Gabriel Byrne, and Ken Loach’s ‘The Secret Life of Phillip Lee’.

The first year of the course, which concludes this May, boasted such instructors and acting luminaries as Danny DeVito, Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Saoirse Ronan, Simon Delaney, Nick Dunning and Stephen Rea.

At the directing end of the scale, students got the opportunity to meet Jim Sheridan, Juanita Wilson, John Carney, Kirsten Sheridan, Lance Daly, Shimmy Marcus, Rebecca Daly, Ian Power, Damien O'Donnell, Dearbhla Walsh, Steph Green and Tom Hall among others.

Applicants should submit a hardcopy cover letter, CV and headshot to The Programme, The Factory, 35a Barrow Street, Dublin 4 – with an application fee of €30 before 3rd May.

The Factory will also be holding an open day on 7th June from 3-7pm, ahead of its late application deadline of 10th June.
