Had another wonderful morning at Cast today, this time supporting a performance of Snow Play attended by children from a local special school and members of the public. Such a fun, interactive experience for all!
I was delighted to see how accessible this performance was and it was clear to see that the staff team at Cast had really given so much thought and consideration into implementing the recommendations I had made with regards to how the performance and environment could be adapted to best meet the additional needs of this group of children in addition to the amazing work they already do to make Cast such an inclusive and accessible theatre. The info I had provided had also clearly been shared with the actors who I was able to meet with before the performance began. This was great as they too were so eager to ensure the children’s needs were met so that they could engage with and enjoy the performance.
The way in which the performance was delivered was perfect and everyone present had such a wonderful time. The children appeared to thoroughly enjoy the performance with laughter and looks of sheer delight from start to finish.
A huge thank you to the staff at Cast, the Snow Play production team and actors. It’s been such an absolute pleasure working with you all!
