Gormanstown Drama Summer School for August 2014 is launched
30 Apr 2014 : Deirdre Molumby
Writer Pat McCabe and director Padraic McIntyre
Writer Pat McCabe (‘The Butcher Boy’, ‘Breakfast on Pluto’) and director Padraic McIntyre (‘The Night Joe Dolans Car Broke Down’) were in Smock Alley Theatre this week to help launch the new Gormanston Drama Summer School for August 2014.

They were joined by Director of The Gaiety School of Acting (The National Theatre School of Ireland) Patrick Sutton and Director of Stageworks, Eamonn O’Donoghue to launch a new partnership between the two schools and a new programme of courses for the drama summer school, which runs from 3rd to 9th August.

This week long programme will have a wide choice of courses on offer in performance theatre and drama, which have been designed to meet the needs of those new to theatre, as well as the more experienced actor. Participants will have the opportunity to train with highly regarded tutors such as Joerg Andrees, Sue Colgrave and Kevin Dowsett to name but just a small few.

Courses on offer will cover topics from musical theatre to the Chekhov technique, improvisation and directing as well as looking at the relationship between the audience and interpreting text. Participants will also have the opportunity to create, from scratch, a One-Act Play that will be performed at the end of the week through Pat McCabe and Padraic McIntyre’s aptly named course, ‘A Play in a Week’.

There will also be a busy social schedule lined up for every night of the week, which will include fancy dress, pub quizzes, dancing and more.

Gormanston Summer School will be supported by years of expertise from The Gaiety School of Acting (GSA), and the experience and commitment of Stageworks. While the GSA’s personnel will handle the booking process, in this new arrangement, Stageworks will still be available to offer a friendly word of advice and encouragement to all participants.

Eamonn O’Donoghue, Director of Stageworks stated: “It is most fitting that Ireland’s leading Drama Summer School at Gormanston and our National Theatre School at the Gaiety School of Acting should come together to form an unique Arts partnership. We are confident that this initiative will ensure the continued success of Gormanston.”

Patrick Sutton, GSA Director added, “It is with great pride that we announce this partnership between the extraordinary Gormanston summer school and The Gaiety School of Acting -The National Theatre School of Ireland. As always Freda and Eamonn of Stageworks and all the old reliables will provide the heart and soul of what makes Gormanston what it has been for the past 30 years. Here’s to the future where booking is a little easier and the word can now be spread via social media to a much wider reach of people worldwide. The magic that is Gormanston will thrive under this new partnership and we promise that participants will not be disappointed.”
