Welcome to the home of Dublin Central School of Acting.

Dublin Central School of Acting provides a creative space where people who are new to the Industry can learn the craft of Film and TV acting, working with trained and experienced professionals.

DCSA also provides quality workshops for the experienced actor who need to hone their skills for Soaps/Episodic TV and Film Acting.

The school was founded by Casting Director Gillian Reynolds who regularly teaches at the school-along with special guest Directors/Artists.

It was great to have Mitchell Mullen in Filming an online TV series with our students.They loved being part of the scenes. Between him and fellow actor Elizabeth Moynihan and to their Director who was so patient in explaining why certain shots were used- from Masters to over the shoulder and 180 degree angle- all the theory learnt in class became so clear.

Such a good actor! Elizabeth was Fab too!
