SameSkin is coming to Caboolture – register now!

SameSkin performer at Government House in June 2013The one-of-a-kind SameSkin program is celebrating its success by introducing a second location at the Caboolture PCYC Community Shed, Toovey Street, Caboolture.  The new weekly workshops will commence August 1 and run from 1:30pm until 3:30pm.

SameSkin inclusive theatre workshops benefit young people with and without disabilities through the mediums of drama and dance/physical theatre and will aim to:

  • Encourage friendships, teamwork and networking opportunities.
  • Allow participants to experience the pleasure of creativity.
  • Provide quality training in drama and dance/physical theatre.
  • Create performance opportunities.
  • Provide employment and/or personal development for participants.

Participants will have the opportunity to perform in their very own theatre production at the end of the course; a play written and directed by our very own Angela Witcher.  They may also have other exciting opportunities, like that of the Redcliffe program, where workshop participants became roaming performers at Government House in June this year (pictured).

By working closely with organisations offering lifeskills and networking opportunities to people with disabilities, we work towards building a strong involvement for our participants, leading to increased audience capacity and further employment opportunities for both the disabled and arts sectors within our community.

FREE workshop in Redcliffe!

InsideOutside’s SameSkin project is about to enter its third term and we would like to invite anyone who wants to come and have fun learning something new to try out our workshop for FREE on Saturday 20 July. If you are 13-99 come and give it a go – you might surprise yourself!

Our current members are aged from 13 to 50+ and many have physical or intellectual disabilities but they are working together as a company to create some truly exciting theatre. This year, they performed alongside professionals at our Variété show delivering a new piece of theatre based on the Macklemore hit ‘Wings’ and delivered a winning performance as roving characters from a Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Government House Open Day in June.  In September we hope to perform at community event ‘Is Everybody Here’ in Caboolture and in December all our members will be part of our children’s Christmas show.

We have now moved to The Redcliffe Cultural Centre from 10am until 12.00pm.  To sign up for a free session on 20 July just email your details to angela@insideoutsidetheatre.com or call 0415 070015 for more information.
