June 2017 Recipients
The Operating Theatre Trust received $1,500 to take 40 children from Kelston Deaf Education Centre to a sign language interpreted performance of Mrs Wishy-Washy by Joy Cowley.
The theatre ran similar sign language interpreted performances earlier this year and the demand was so great they wanted to offer the performances to more children.
The project directly aligns with the trusts purpose of making theatre accessible to all children and to foster a love for theatre, literature and the arts in children aged between three and eight.
These shows also fill a specific need for children that require special accessible performances so they can have an enriching and fun theatre experience too.
