On Wednesday a group of clients went to the Nottingham Playhouse to see a performance of the Pantomime, Cinderella.
It may be coming towards the end of the run but for the clients it was a great experience! There were lots of jokes, dancing, music and drama. We were made to feel especially welcome by some of the adjustments made, as the performance was specially designed for people with additional needs including Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome to enjoy.
A visual story with widgit signs had kindly been created by the Playhouse with the help of Nottingham Mencap. It included a fantastic guide to the storyline which helped our clients understand the plot.
Support Worker Elle said “It was a really fun experience and well worth going to!” Our client Jake said “Cinderella was a wonderful show…it was entertaining and we had fun singing along with the crowd and shouting IT’S BEHIND YOU!”
Thanks to Nottingham Playhouse for a lovely time.
