Herts Inclusive Theatre had 30 days to raise money for our adult theatre group Acting Up to put on an all inclusive performance of Hairspray the musical in Spring 2020!
By providing the adults with the opportunity to take part in the workshops, rehearsals and the final performance it helps to give them life skills that they might not be able to access otherwise.
The performance will give adults with learning and physical disabilities the opportunity to perform the professional version of Hairspray the Musical.
The theme of Hairspray is very much about inclusion and diversity so by doing this particular musical we are reinforcing and tackling inclusion and diversity from a different angle. Hairspray as a production has a number of secondary roles, as well as the leading ones, this will enable each and every cast member to show their talents and have more ‘stage time’ than most productions.
