Act Up!


‘Art is the way back from fantasy for the neurotic.’  Sigmund Freud

Come all ye neurotics and let’s Act Up! 

Act Up! was founded in January 2012 as an acting class for the uninitiated and has become a golden reserve for untapped talent. Now, as well as acting classes, Act Up! has a thriving theatre production company and provides a wide range of acting classes for both corporates and individuals. All classes are conducted in a fun and supportive environment to draw out the best of your inherent creativity.

Act Up! moved to Temple Bar in 2013 to accommodate the extra numbers and have done nine productions in the last four and half years.
