Maddy and the Invisible Band of Groovers is a hit at theatres across the UK, and is all set to debut in London on November 19 at Half Moon Theatre.
Why not treat your young ones and teenagers (and you!) to a spirited show that won’t break the bank?
Maddy and the Invisible Band of Groovers is staged by Invisible Flash, a new theatre company, that works extensively with schools for blind children. All of their stories are enhanced to improve access for a non-sighted audience.
Invisible Flash also works in partnership with Kazzum, a performing arts company – that received a special GLFB grant – for children, young people and adults with a visual impairment.
Children and adults with sight loss can easily feel alienated and disengaged from the people and activities around them.
The GLFB funds a variety of extra-curricular projects, from theatre workshops to sports programmes, which help boost self-confidence, develop independence and improve one’s overall quality of life.
What’s in store?
Maddy lacks confidence and has had a bad day at school. Her Grandfather has just moved in, the last thing she wants to do is help him unpack his boxes. But, when Maddy opens a very special box, Grandfather lets her into a secret, involving a girl with portable ears, a piano teacher, vile siblings, an old potato and a bus-driving owl.
Full of audience participation and using storytelling, puppetry and songs to celebrate diversity, difference and friendship, the show is performed by four actors and encourages you to believe in yourself. The participatory performance is aimed at children aged six to10.
Grab your tickets and get ready for some top-notch entertainment that is sure to please theatre enthusiasts of all ages.
