Aspiring Actors, Wanted!

The deadline has now past for this opportunity.


We are looking to expand our talent pool by inviting aspiring actors aged 18 and over with an intellectual disability to audition for a permanent place within our resident company of artists.

This autumn, a rare opportunity has arisen and we will be holding open auditions for a small number of places, casting the net wide in search of brilliant talent. Previous acting experience is not necessary; many actors come to their careers as diamonds in the rough looking for an opportunity to shine. The successful candidates will join our vibrant, experienced cohort of actors to develop and perform theatre on Ireland’s main stages and beyond. This positive development is part of an overall expansion, aligned to the company’s Strategic Arts Plan (2023-2027).

Interested candidates should go to the Audition page for detailed information (now closed).

Application is via email only or by calling 091 520 977 (Mon to Thurs 9am – 5pm).

Deadline for application  is 12pm Monday 13 November.

Auditions to be held late November and early December.

We’ll leave the final words to company actor , Kieran Coppinger ….

“Be yourself, be proud of the fact you have a disability. When you’re on that stage, it’s a whole different world”.
