TEAM Educational Theatre Company

OVERVIEW

  • Description

    TEAM Educational Theatre Company was one of Ireland's longest established theatre in education companies and earned national acclaim over 38 years working within the primary and post-primary system. The company produced work for children and young people to high artistic standards, primarily in their own formal learning environment, that: provided an authentic experience which resonated with their own lives; challenged them to feel, think, interact and do within the dramatic context; and opened them to the potential of theatre. TEAM ceased operations in April 2014.
