Workshop -10 November 2020

Howyia Hansomes!

With the upcoming auditions for our next production: Seminars, we thought it was only appropriate to evolve this week’s workshops on auditioning!With the way the world is at the moment, and everything being very much virtual, it is now more important than ever to get your self-tape auditioning skills on point!

No better woman for the job than No Drama’s very own, long time working actor, the wonderful Sorcha Herlihy!

Sorcha has been working in the acting industry since 2002, with her very first-ever acting role in feature film “Evelyn” alongside Mr James Bond himself, Pierce Brosnan, since then she has been in many feature and short films, TV shows and commercial campaigns, and playing many roles in theatre, one of which was her favourite, leading lady Miss Hallie Jackson in No Drama theatres “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” (2018) this was Sorcha’s introduction into No Drama Theatre, and she is now part of the committee as our very own PR/Marketing Gal! (Hence a lot of lady gaga references lately😅)

“This weeks workshop will be considerating on the art of self-taping, and how important it is (now more than ever) to execute it to the best of your ability, giving you the greatest chance of getting that callback, or in the room with the director! We will also look into the things that hold us back most when auditioning and how we can use different skills to overcome the fear and struggles that come with putting yourself out there! We will do activities on getting to know a character quickly when necessary and getting the job done, as sometimes you are only giving a few hours to prep for last-minute auditions, especially in this industry!”

We also may have a special guest at the end of this workshop👀 so make sure and get yourselves on that zoom call 7pm tomorrow evening!

Join us on Tuesday on Zoom at 7pm! Link below ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

Introduction our winter production “Seminar” by theresa rebeck director Corinna Reichle

Its all go here at No Drama Theatre dear friends!Corona ain’t stopping the creative trian that we are on! As you know the wonderful Corinna Reichle will be our winter production Director, so here you are, let us proudly introduce to you all…..

The next No Drama production will be “Seminar”, a dark comedy by Theresa Rebeck that was first performed in 2011.
The play is set in present Day New York and follows four aspiring writers – Kate, Martin, Douglas and Izzy – who have paid $5,000  each for a ten-week writing seminar with international literary figure Leonard. Leonard’s unorthodox teaching style soon pits the classmates against each other: some of them flourish under his version of tough love, while others flounder with self-doubt. As tensions arise and romance falls, they clash over their writing, their relations, and their futures.

Keep an eye out on our socials regarding our upcoming auditons for Seminar and also for the announcement of this weeks workshop which is sure to be alot of help in terms of new world auditioning!

Exciting stuff!

Have a glorious Sunday evening

the next director

Good evening beautiful people, just in case you missed our winter production announcement at our Shindig after-party- here it is…in writing!

A woman of such talent, wit, humour, intelligence and comedic timing like no other needs no introduction, but here it is anyway because dammmn we are beyond excited for this! This year’s winter production, will be directed by the one and only – Corinna Reichle! Hi – it’s me. she’s natural.she’s approachable.she is just like one of you.

Corinna has been a member of No Drama Theatre for the past 4 years. She started out as a loyal workshop-attendee (and the pub-after-goer… remember the pub after a workshop?); then soon began helping out backstage at No Drama Shows.

She has written, directed and performed in several of the Shindigs and the (BYO) Monologue Nights and had the pleasure of facilitating a couple of the No Drama Workshops. In 2018 she developed her 10-minute Shindig piece „Insomnia“ further and took it to Smock Alley Theatre’s Scene + Heard Festival.

Outside of No Drama Theatre, Corinna has worked as (Assistant) Stage Manager and Assistant Director for several productions around Dublin and just came back from Assistant Directing two plays in Berlin. Before they locked down.

She finished the Advanced Performance Course in the Gaiety School of Acting and an Introduction to the Meisner Technique and is currently in her third and final year of studying Theatre Performance in Inchicore College for Further Education.

After having been Assistant Director for No Drama’s last main production „Gaslight“ in winter 2019 she is now super happy to have been selected Director for this one. In such strange and unprecedented times, too.

It’s going to be a bit different, but she is up for all the challenges the Corona-Pandemic will be throwing at this production and is looking forward to get her amazing crew and euphoric cast assembled.

There you have it folks, get excited, get involved, get READY.

Because we definitely are 😉

The show will in fact, go ON!🎭
