Auditions for Siamsa Tíre’s training academy are being opened up to teenagers and adults for the first time.
Every year they search for traditional singers and dancers aged 7 to 12 years for the National Folk Theatre Training Academy.
For the first time, they’re inviting teenagers and adults; the auditions are by appointment only from June 13th and 15th.
The successful candidates will train in Irish music, song and dance, with the potential to become a cast member of the National Folk Theatre of Ireland.
The auditions will take place by appointment only on June 13th at Teach Siamsa Finuge, June 14th at Teach Siamsa na Carraige, Dingle, and on June 15th at Siamsa Tíre, Tralee.
Applicants must have a song and an Irish dance piece prepared for their audition and need to demonstrate some previous interest in Irish music and/or dance, as this training is not for complete beginners.
