We have been delivering a series of festive workshops for the lovely Animate Theatre, in Plymouth, who provide drama experiences for people with a variety of disabilities.
Over 5 sessions participants: experimented with puppetry skills like how to express emotions, wrote original Christmas themed scripts, played with lighting effects and music, made their own wonderful puppets, props and scenery.
At the 6th session the air was buzzing, everyone had a part to play, as the Animate Theatre Company performed their four festive stories, to a delighted audience of friends and families.
Participants' and carers' feedback:
"Identified the SU's needs and delivered well"
"A workshop that provides socialising, cognitive, manual skills etc with an outstanding finale in the show"
"We smiled from start to finish"
"Makes me feel better with meeting all people"
