Opportunity Summary:

The NC Acting & Theatre Performance course was launched at Moray College UHI in partnership with Out of the Darkness Theatre Company in the 2012-13 academic year and has been a great success already, with many former students progressing to HNC and degree level courses at other universities. The NC course is delivered by experienced theatre professionals and supported by a range of visiting directors and producers who bring with them a wealth of knowledge gained in acting and drama in Scotland and beyond, and provides a great springboard for those who wish to consider further study in acting and drama, or employment in the theatre or related industries. Creativity, self-awareness, communication and teamwork are just some of the skills developed in a realistic setting. In the first intake, four individuals with autism successfully graduated from the course and have gone onto further training. If you have a disability and are interested in accessing this course, please contact Leigh-Anne Hepburn, Development Officer, on 07870 581132 or

Organisation Information:

Out of the Darkness Theatre Company (ODTC) was founded in 1992 in Moray in the north-east of Scotland as a well supported voluntary organisation. Since then the Company has progressed into an independent full time professional theatre company with charitable status. We are committed to combating social exclusion by demonstrating through all activities that the diversity which inclusion brings contributes to development, increases creativity and innovation, heightens awareness, promotes understanding and harnesses unique skills and talents. As a professional performing company of disabled and non-disabled performers we continue to devise new work for performance as well as using available texts. We also perform issue based work by invitation at conferences and events using the power of performance to benefit the host organisations agenda.
