Well done to Dashel from the Model School who was cast in a commercial only days after signing up for our Limerick School of Acting database!
Well done to the Limerick School of Acting students, adults and kids, who landed roles on the internet commercial shot in University of Limerick and Adare last week. The Chinese and Dublin agencies were very impressed.
Our Limerick School of Acting database is getting very busy!!!
Two of our young students are auditioning this week thanks to our actors database being used by top Dublin casting agents.
Good luck to Meabh meeting with the producer and director coming over from London this Thursday who are casting for the lead role in an exciting new short filmed being shot in Co. Clare this summer.
And good luck also to Rebecca who is being considered for the lead role in an Irish feature film also being shot here over the summer.
It’s been a busy month for the Limerick School of Acting who have been heavily involved in the casting for short movie Lost and Found filming in Limerick this weekend.
Casting director Gillian Reynolds (Cowboys and Angels, Primeval, Fair City) made extensive use of the Limerick School of Acting casting database while casting for this local movie.
One of our young student’s James Griffin auditioned for the lead part but, despite getting down to the last couple of kids up for consideration, lost out in the final hurdle.
However, a few of the boys will appear as extras in the film funded by the Limerick Film Scheme and directed by Liam O’Neill of Paradox Pictures.
LSA director Nigel Mercier is cast in the role of ‘Jack’.
Our casting database is coming up trumps again this year.
Our latest success is the very talented Alanna from our 12-14 year Saturday class who has been cast in the Quarry Players latest production ‘Moment’, directed by John Murphy, performing in March.
Good luck also to James from the 9-11 year afternoon Saturday class who is on top casting director Gillian Reynolds’ shortlist for a new short movie to be shot in Limerick in February.
Since we started the adult acting course a couple of years ago we have been amazed at how much our students have achieved in such a short time.
For example: Tommy Hourston has appeared on the Belltable stage in Pigtown, played roles on TG4, appeared on Game of Thrones, Vikings and Reign, and landed a Meteor TV commercial.
Many of our students have landed roles in local short movies and local stage productions not least of which are Philip Coffey and Brian O’Regan who will star in a new Irish feature film ‘Cattle Raid’ this summer.
Well done guys!!
June 2013: Two of our 11 yr old boys are presently auditioning for Hubbard Casting in London for the lead role in a major new feature film. Good luck guys!
Three Limerick School of Acting students have been called for a movie audition this January 2013 thanks to our new casting database for casting directors.
We wish them the best of luck!
It’s been an exciting year at the Limerick School of Acting.
To celebrate our twentieth year we have made some cool changes. We introduced adult acting classes with emphasis on film acting that are proving to be extremely popular. We made several top quality films in May/June 2012 and had great fun entering the ‘Film-In-A-Day’ competition. In fact, our school is really making a mark on the local film making scene in a very short space of time with our actors already in demand for other projects.
Our kids are also in big demand with regular requests from casting agents in Dublin as they realise that we have some incredible talent emerging from the school.
So, as we enter our 21st year, our goal is to make our mark nationally and let the rest of the country discover the talent we have in abundance at the Limerick School of Acting!
