Action Ability Belfast drama production group is continuing its partnership with the Grand Opera House Belfast for its fantastic Northern Ireland original scripted production ‘Yeeha I’ll Tell Me Ma”’, which will be showcased in the Opera House on Friday September 18.

With music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and 10s the show has something for all the family. Filled with an eclectic mix of humour, emotion and thought provoking dramatisation it’s a show not to be missed.

The production, which is being performed by people with a disability age 12 to 18+, aims to capture the imagination of the greater Northern Ireland public with its unique characterisation and witty humour amidst the fantastic backdrop of the music from generations past and present.

Joe McNally, Senior project Worker with Action Ability Belfast, gave an insight into the show’s challenging storyline. “The show centres upon religious and cultural division which continues to form barriers within our communities, this unfortunately is something we are all too familiar with,” he explained. “The group have come up with a script that is funny, challenging and thought provoking.”

Actress Grace Tobin, who plays the lead role Belle, added: “The experience we gained from performing Oh Mummy Mia to a full house at the Grand Opera House and working with Tim McGarry was unbelievable, I never dreamt in a million years that I would even be on the Grand Opera Stage never mind perform to a full house.”

Also appearing as very special guests are the fantastic Motown Brothers. Motown Brothers band member Darryl Hendrix commented: “What an opportunity this is for us to perform at such a fantastic venue and work with such a wonderful cast of people.”

Action Ability Belfast aims to promote the social inclusion of all persons with a disability into the social, leisure, economic and cultural life of their community, and works throughout North, South, East and West Belfast.

Tickets for the show can be purchased at the Grand Opera House Box Office on 028 9024 1919 or online at
