Employment Opportunities for Gaelic Speaking Performers 2020

Online Application Form

Fèisean nan Gàidheal regularly provide employment opportunities for Gaelic speakers through plays we produce and tour through our Fèisgoil service. We’re currently recruiting Gaelic speakers for a number of productions touring this year.

The majority of the Gaelic language plays and dramatised workshops we tour are aimed at children enrolled in Gaelic medium education but we also provide a service for primary school classes learning Gaelic as an additional language.

Having experience as an actor/ performer is not essential.

For each of our plays we programme in a development period followed by 5 days of rehearsal before each tour.
