We have two community theatre programmes that cater for adults (Bright Soul) or youth (Sparkle) who are curious about performance and the opportunity to participate in fun and fearless creative workshops. Spring & autumn terms of 8-10 weeks each, both programmes can be a pathway into the more formal training environment of the Performing Arts School.
Bright Soul is Blue Teapot’s longstanding arts participation project originally founded in 1996 within the Brothers of Charity Services Galway. Started as a simple creative outlet for adults with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities, today, it maintains that ethos and places an emphasis on fun while practising performance skills.
Bright Soul runs on average twenty weeks within the year and caters for a variety of ages. Some of the original members still attend while younger participants have used this experience as a stepping stone in to the three year Performing Arts School.
Sparkle is a drama programme for teenagers aged 12 – 17 years. And is the basis of a future Young Ensemble, an artistically led engagement and pathway for those who want to access formal training in to our Performing Arts School. Tutors focus on group work, concentration and memorization exercises, exploring imagination and creativity.
Demand for places in both Bright Soul and Sparkle are high but we encourage people to contact us for more information and an application form. Tel: 091 520 977 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
