DramaCast: Rehearsals

Patrick McBrearty looking thoughtful in rehearsals for Dramacast

DramaCast is an exciting new initiative created by An Grianán Theatre, and Workhouse Theatre Company,  to bring Shakespeare, and Friel, back into the classroom.

With Covid curtailing all live touring it’s been impossible for schools to take their classes to see plays as normal. DramaCast fills that gap by selecting scenes relevant to the school curriculum and filming them here in An Grianán to distribute to local schools.

Under the direction of Michael Kelly from Letterkenny’s St Eunan’s College and Iarla McGowan of Workhouse Theatre rehearsals got under way in earnest last week, in the fantastic studios at Zona Dance in Letterkenny.

The play excerpts will be from Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and Philadelphia Here I Come.

This week the filming will take place on the stage here at An Grianán with Karen Quinn as Director of Photography.
