We know the beauty of our venue and how proudly we show The Chrysalis to the outside world. We all also know the important role that our theatre is playing in the inclusion of people with special needs.
To include adults with special needs into day-to-day running routine of our theatre, the theatre needed to form a platform that allowed them to discover, learn and to practise skills that enable each individual with special needs to feel as adequate and helpful as any other member of the theatre staff.
And so that The Backstage Workshop has been formed
The Theatre Backstage Workshop is a small team of theatre enthusiasts who are active & productive as The Chrysalis Theatre can host many different events, from conferences to concerts, through lectures, theatrical plays to political debates.
The Content of The Backstage Workshop is aimed to adopt practical skills and use them, on own judgement, whenever possible. The workshop is a small group of maximum 6 people taking a part.
