Oxted-based charity Head2Head Sensory Theatre has unveiled a series of summer drama workshops that will create new routes into the performing arts for children and teens with disabilities.
Suitable for children and young adults with moderate learning difficulties and/or physical disabilities from 7 to 19+, the workshops will use drama games, role play and improvisation to encourage the participants to learn new drama skills, make friends and have fun in a friendly, accessible and safe space.
Head2Head founder Anni Rhodes Steere believes that everybody should have equal access to the performing arts:
“We understand how important drama tools can be to awaken the senses, encourage communication and sociability and build self-confidence. We want to give everyone theatrical opportunities in a nurturing environment.”
The workshops are the next step for the charity on their mission to create pathways into theatre for children and young people with special needs. They already have a successful work experience programme for young students.
The drama sessions will take place every Thursday in August at Drewshearne Barn, Crowhurst Lane, Oxted. You can book your child’s place here.
