Beginners Acting is a fun, gentle introduction to acting, improvisation and a little voice work. Nothing scary. You will learn basic principles of acting and the emphasis is on fun and getting out of your comfort zone. The group is usually comprised of a good mix of ages ranging from 20s up to 60s and everyone gets on like a house on fire! We usually go for a drink after the 3rd class and the last night of the course. If this seems like it is up your alley you can guarantee your place now.

Improvers Acting is a step up. As well as diving into our usual fun improvisations, each participant will bring a piece of text they wish to work on and we will spend six fun weeks bringing it to life. If you’ve done our beginners class or have some experience at acting, this is the class for you if you want to up your game.

  1. Hi,
    I’m interested in your beginners acting class but would just like some more information on class content. I recently attended a youth drama group which concentrated on games like movement to music, be an inanimate object, etc..without learning about acting techniques or improving skills. I hope your class can provide the relaxed learning environment I’m looking for.
    Thanks in advance,

  2. Hi, am looking at doinga beginers course in acting, and would it be possible to send me any information on how to go about doing it as an evening course.

    Many thanks

  3. Hi, any class in July or August? Can you please het in touch to let me know price, timetables, etc.

  4. Hi There,

    I stumbled upon your site as I was Googling for inspiration. I’m an actor & workshop facilitator based in Fermoy Co. Cork. I am hoping to host some improv workshops in my locality for adults, with an emphasis on mental well-being. As I said, I was googling for inspiration and was delighted to find you. What you are doing looks fantastic, and is pretty much what I have in mind! My hope is to build it up over time if I can get a bit of funding. I’d love to speak with someone from your group to get a bit of background on Act The Maggot, and maybe use some of your models to get my own programmes up and running. Could I possibly please have a contact name and number for anyone who can offer me some insight?

    Kind Regards,

    Kevin McCormack
