About Blue Apple Theatre
Founded in 2005, Blue Apple Theatre provides opportunities for learning disabled people to develop performing skills and to present theatre, dance, singing, and film performances to public audiences.
Notwithstanding recent progress, learning disabled people still face barriers to participation in society, suffering exclusion, stigma and isolation. Performing builds confidence and self-esteem, encourages creative expression, promotes social integration and opportunity for connection.
High quality drama productions are presented at UK indoor and outdoor venues – including London’s Globe Theatre – and internationally in the US, Czech Republic, Poland and Italy.

As an ACE National Portfolio Organisation, over the next three years, SPD will create a Bharatanatyam repertoire company, deliver an innovative programme of classical Indian and contemporary dance and dance theater, talent development, community programmes and digital work.
We are a diverse led organization that has strong values around equity and inclusion.

The Executive Director will work closely with the Artistic Director and the team to build an exciting company and to deliver the artistic programme and develop partnerships nationally and internationally which will see SPD as a major influence in the dance sector.

Trustees and Chair by Rachel Hepworth
ThickSkin is seeking to appoint three voluntary Trustees to our Board.
We welcome applications from everyone, and particularly encourage applicants who are usually under-represented in the theatre industry. We are looking to compliment the skills and experience of our existing Board members and are keen to hear from individuals with any of the following expertise:
- Chief Executive / Executive Director experience
- Executive experience in a producing and touring company

Extraordinary stories told in unexpected ways
ThickSkin is reinventing theatre for the next generation. We are reimagining what theatre can be and looking to share human stories through quality, future-facing, multi-disciplined formats. We’re developing 360° artists of the future for a hybrid world where physical and digital collide in more ways than ever before.
The company was founded by Neil Bettles and Laura Mallows in 2010 and quickly established itself as one of the UK’s most exciting theatre companies, producing multi-award-winning productions, commissioning new writing and touring worldwide. We have recently been invited to join Arts Council England’s National Portfolio and with a new base in Wigan as a Resident Company of The Old Courts.
