The Wooden O Drama Course

Kinsale College has established a reputation for providing exciting and innovative Theatre Training, attracting students nationally and from further afield.

The Wooden O Theatre course is taught by professional theatre artists working both in Cork and nationally. The course is designed to offer students the opportunity to explore and develop their creative expression within a group environment that is safe, supportive and fun. Kinsale College has a unique, specially designed and purpose built outdoor amphitheatre providing drama students with a perfect space for rehearsal and public performance. Students also perform, on occasion, in venues outside the college, in Cork. In addition there are often opportunities to take productions on tour. Links are maintained with the professional theatre, both through the permanent staff and by master classes, offered by visiting theatre professionals and course alumni in their areas of expertise.


Core to the teaching practise in Kinsale is belief in an ensemble approach to creating and delivering theatre. Students of the drama course are considered to be part of a Company, where each actor has a vital contribution to make to the creative work of the group.
