Auditions for DramaCast

DramaCast is an exciting new initiative created by An Grianán Theatre to bring Shakespeare back into the classroom.

With Covid curtailing all live touring it’s been impossible for schools to take their classes to go and see plays live as normal. DramaCast is our attempt to fill that gap by selecting scenes relevant to the school curriculum and filming them here in An Grianán to distribute to local schools.

We’ve engaged local teacher Michael Kelly from Letterkenny’s St Eunan’s College to make sure the project is relevant to the curriculum while Iarla McGowan of Workhouse Theatre will direct key scenes for us.

We are looking for some local actors to play some of the roles.
