What We Do

Practically Theatre provides drama workshops for people with learning difficulties and disabilties and those without access to theatre. We aim to create work that is interesting, exciting and accessible for our performers and our audience.

Practically Theatre performer Kyle says:

“I like drama because I get to meet new people and interact with them. Also, I can express myself in different environments and situations. That is why Practically Theatre is the best for anyone, as it helps with self confidence”.

Practically Theatre offers regular workshops and one-off sessions and performances. Please email practicallytheatre@gmail.com to find out more.
