Notice for Abbey School of Acting classes

This notice from Lennox Robinson, Principal of the Abbey School of Acting outlines the structure of the classes undertaken as part of the Abbey School. Classes are mainly concerned with acting but range from breathing and voice production to occasional lectures on Make-Up.

For many this was the route to the Abbey stage but for others their acting ability or knowledge of Irish qualified for an audition, ultimately leading them to the Abbey company. Hear how Ronnie Masterson was spotted by Ernest Blythe at a Feis and how others made their way to the Abbey in Starting Out, a podcast from the Abbey Theatre Oral History Project.
