No Drama Theatre – “It’s all fun and games ‘til someone loses a line!”
Every once in a while some like-minded individuals with a certain vision cross path and something spectacular happens. No Drama Theatre is one such spectacular thing. Conceived in dusty old rooms and bar snugs back in 2008 to provide a welcoming, easy-going environment for people to practice drama in Dublin city centre, No Drama Theatre, since a toddler, has strived to avoid the ordinary and nurture the extraordinary.
Workshops that delve into everything from characterisation, improvisation, physical theatre to script work take place in Synge St. CBS, Synge St. on Tuesdays from 7 PM – 9:30 PM. There are also structured courses on offer covering various aspects of acting and improvisation.
After 10 years, No Drama Theatre’s passion, vision and momentum are stronger than ever. You can read for yourself what we are all about in our official Mission statement:
We are inclusive
Membership is open to all adults, regardless of experience, gender, race, sexual orientation, disability or religion. Anyone can come to one of our workshops and join us there and then.
We encourage participation
We want our members to contribute and have a voice in deciding what we do and how we do it. As well as getting involved in all aspects of our theatrical productions, either on stage or behind the scenes, we also want our members to have an opportunity to select plays, facilitate workshops and serve on the committee.
We are alternative and open-minded
We find our own ways of organising and developing work and devise our own solutions to the challenges of creating theatre. We are open to all forms of performance.
We seek interesting material
We look to produce plays that are not already seen frequently and produce them to the best of our ability.
We aim high
We strive to be the most professional ‘Amateur’ theatre group out there.
We want to have fun but we want to be great too.
