When touring South London and S.E. England we work in collaboration with special school venues offering opportunities to their SEND students.
In addition, participants from across the U.K. work remotely on virtual sessions, rehearsing with a professional actor before performing 3 zoom shows in one day. Each show is attended by 7 families many of whom have commented on how encouraging it is to see a trainee neuro-diverse actor working alongside a professional, neurotypical actor and that it has given them hope for their child’s future.
We also offer stage management, voice over and performance opportunities in film work, both on set and on location, some of which are professional engagements.
From our Oxted base we collaborate with The Orpheus Centre, a specialist performing arts college in Godstone. Their students are encouraged to live independent lives, such as making breakfast and doing their own laundry. Our Work Experience Programme has added a further dimension to their lives with a need to be good timekeepers, to seek clarification of an instruction, to work with new people and to learn new skills.
