Theatre charity, Head2Head Sensory Theatre, has unveiled a programme to create new opportunities in the performing arts for disabled children and teens by launching drama sessions for summer.
Based on Crowhurst Lane End in Oxted, Head2Head’s new accessible drama workshops provide a welcoming and inclusive environment for children and young people to have fun, make friends and learn new skills in drama, in a friendly and accessible space.
The charity wants to help create pathways into theatre from those of primary school age up to young adulthood and already runs a successful Work Experience programme for young students with special needs.
Anni Rhodes Steere said: “We believe that everyone should have equal access to the performing arts, whether they want a career in arts or just take a class for fun. We also understand how important drama tools can be to awaken the senses, encourage communication, sociability and build self-confidence.”
“We want to give everyone theatrical opportunities in a nurturing environment.”
Suitable for children and young adults aged 7-19+ with moderate learning difficulties and/or physical disabilities, the workshops use drama games, role play and improvisation to allow participants to interact and express themselves in a safe and playful manner.
The venue also has parking on site disabled toilet and hygiene room.
