Hello, I’m Sara, Artistic Director for Head2Head Sensory Theatre. We create accessible theatre for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), from curriculum-based installations, to our own take on well-known stories, to traditional family pantomimes.
During our holiday tours, we are joined at each venue by a young actor-volunteer with special needs. They play a character in the show and work alongside us. As COVID-19 has stopped us touring our new show ‘Come Trot to Camelot’ for the time being, we decided to try something new and filmed it instead.
You can still join in online!
So how does it work? Well, at the beginning of the video there is a list of bits and bobs to get together ready for the start of our multi-sensory adventure. You grab your props and join in the fun! Prefer a treasure-hunt style version? All you have to do is wait until you reach a moment when an actor asks you to find something and invites you to ‘press pause’ – then you can start the hunt. Perhaps you can be our actor-volunteer and become Merlin the Magician!
