Stage Production 2024

Would Your Child Like to be Involved in a Stage Production?

Adur Special Needs Project (The Charity) is putting on a stage show on the 6th of July 2024. If you have a child between the ages of 8 and 18 with SEND in the Adur area, then we would love to hear from you.

What Does The Stage Production Involve?

From 20th April 2024, we are running six Stage Production Workshops followed by a Public Show on the following dates in 2024:

Sat 20th April – All Workshops at Herons Dale School, Hawkins Crescent, Shoreham-By-Sea

Sat 4th May

Sat 18th May

Sat 1st June

Sat 15th June

Sat 29th June

Sat 6th July – Public Show at the Ropetackle Arts Centre, Shoreham-By-Sea

Each Workshop will run from 9:30 to 15:30 each Saturday with breaks for lunch and snacks. Participants in the show will need to arrive at the Ropetackle at 9:00am.

The Workshops will consist of three sessions being Music, Drama & Arts and Prop-Making. These sessions will be managed and run by skilled professional workshop leaders under the supervision of Artistic Director, Andrew Quartermain, from the Pro Corda Organisation.

The show will be available for all family members to attend as well as the community of Adur. Admission to the show will be free of charge.

If you would like your child to be involved the Parent /Guardian must apply directly to the Charity. Failure to do this will mean your child will not be admitted.

How Much Will it Cost?

Although Adur Special Needs Project is a charity and the event is being largely funded by us, we do still require a nominal one-off fee for your child’s entry of £180.00 to cover all Workshop sessions. The Show itself is being funded by the Charity.

Please note that this fee is payable in full upon your application being accepted. No refunds can be given for workshops missed for any reason whatsoever.
