Waterford Municipal Art Collection

The latter group are taking part in a series of workshops with the actor, designed to give them an insight into the world of theatre and being an actor.

One of the workshops involved Mr Beamish showing students how to make a “self-tape”, record a piece of work on their phones which would be good enough to send to casting directors, for the purposes of seeking auditions.
