Ever After Theatre presents 'How to Build a Home'

What's your dream home? Does it have a roof top jacuzzi? A man cave? A garden filled with pet dinosaurs? 

How to Build a Home takes you on an immersive adventure into the experiences of 'home' for people with disabilities. This unique and intimately personal performance will shift your preconceptions and open your mind to what is possible. 

For the past year, Ever After ensemble members have worked tirelessly with theatre directors Natalie Rose, Marnie Palomares and Alice Osborne to devise this new site specific work, and we'd love to see you there.

Tickets are available from https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=277089

*Accessible entrance at the rear of the building, on 344 Little Darling Street, Balmain

Another Term beginning for Red Door Arts..!

Red Door Arts is getting ready to start up for another term and there are still some spots left in our wide range of accessible arts classes!

Kids Drama begins again on the 5th May, every Friday from 5-6pm.

The feedback from previous semesters has been immensely positive, with the participants walking away with new skills, confidence and friendships. Our partnership with Drama Scene Players has shown to be both fruitful and constructive, as the children love Stephanie’s positive vibes and fun teaching methods. If you have a child between the ages of 6-12 who you can see acting potential in, feel free to bring them along for a free trial lesson in the first week!

Our Art by Night Music Classes begin to run every Monday from 7.30-8.45pm from the 8th May.

This is currently one of our most popular classes with our regular participants never missing a workshop. They are firing up for a mid-year performance, and I hear whispers of some Louis Armstrong coming our way!
The classes for adults with an intellectual disability are an opportunity for free expression, social interaction and skill building, while also offering respite to family members and carers. The participants thoroughly enjoy themselves while singing along to some of their favourites!

Art and Drama Express classes are continuing to run (& grow in size!).

The new classes have a different focus every month, and are drop in – so no commitment necessary! Upcoming in May is a Working with Masks (3rd May) and Pastel Drawings (8th May). In June, our participants will get the chance to learn how to pull off the singing, dancing and acting coordination involved in musical theatre!

All of our classes are run by professional facilitators, with extensive knowledge in their field and experience working with people living with a variety of disabilities. There is a support worker present at every class, and we are always happy to have a chat about any queries or concerns you may have!

Contact us at Rozelle Neighbourhood Centre for more info and Thank You to all who made the first term for Red Door Arts such a great success!
