A specialist theatre charity is set to air two accessible online shows for families to enjoy during the Easter break

Head2Head Sensory Theatre, a specialist theatre charity for disabled people and their families, is set to present two new online shows, sure to keep everyone entertained over Easter.

Working alongside young people with a wide range of disabilities, Head2Head Sensory Theatre’s projects encourage participants to take risks by working in small groups of peers and with neurotypical siblings to increases confidence and widen social interaction and skills. 

A unique element of all their work is the ability to provide entertainment irrespective of age and/or stage of development, with puppetry, rhyme, rhythm, repetition, and songs, enabling participants to access it in a fully inclusive way.

And this Easter is set to see two exciting new productions land at Head2Head Sensory Theatre.

Stevie Solvesit and the Case of the Spooky Swamp and Blackbeard’s Revenge are sure to get everyone in the family excited and entertained.
