Stage Beyond, The theatre company for young adults with learning disabilities, are getting ready to host the first ever Strictly Come Dancing competition in the North West where all dancing participants have disabilities.
In just five weeks time, this determined young bunch will be donning their dancing shoes to raise money for their upcoming production of Rashomon which will be performed at the Millennium Forum.
Choreographers Katie Harkin and Harriet Scott agreed that "Dancing is for everyone". Stage Beyond's facilitator Kate Guelke added “I know this group, with their fierce commitment and their big personalities, they will put on a spectacular show. We've got a lot of different numbers ranging from golden oldies and chart hits to musical theatre and Disney.”
Outreach Facilitator Margaret Carlin who is organising this event concludes “I want the City to see how amazing our company are as all-round performers and how dedicated they are to helping secure future success of Stage Beyond as a theatre company.”
As well as the various Strictly performances by the Stage Beyond members, the audience on the night will be treated to group dances, a DJ set from local Students from the Tuned In Project and also a raffle with some great prizes up for grabs.
The Stage Beyond does Strictly" themed fundraiser will take place at Pitchers Winebar & Restaurant on Sunday 13th of March at 7.30pm with tickets priced at £10 which will include light bites.
