Award Winning

Theatre Company

Blue Teapot is a multi-award winning Theatre Company, Performing Arts School and Outreach programme for people with intellectual disabilities at the forefront of arts & disability in Ireland. We are committed to high quality theatre, training and the celebration of creativity.

“It’s one of the best companies in the world working with disability and the arts, and it’s in the West of Ireland” Funder

Our mission is to effect positive change in public consciousness concerning people with intellectual disabilities through the medium of theatre, allowing our members inherent talent and creativity to speak for itself.


What we do

We have four programme strands each offering a pathway to a fully realised creative life for people with intellectual disabilities:

 

    • Blue Teapot Theatre Company – We are the only professional, intellectually disabled acting ensemble that trains and performs at the highest level, on the main stages of Ireland’s major arts festivals.

 

    • Performing Arts School – an accredited provider in the West of Ireland of performing arts training with programmes leading to QQI awards at Level 3.

 

    • Bright Soul – an Outreach project that encourages arts participation in a fun and stimulating programme to those whom would find access to a quality arts experience more difficult.

 

    • Sparkle – This new Outreach drama programme is specifically for teenagers with intellectual disabilities.
