DISCO DISCO

Two free drama and theatre groups for adults with learning disabilities and on the autism spectrum, on Monday evenings in Croydon.

PERFORMANCE COMPANY

This is our group for adults with mild to moderate learning disabilities and those on the autism spectrum, who want to create their own pieces of theatre to perform to public audiences.

Each term you will work with a director and other group members to make a piece of theatre to perform in public. This could be at local events, or at festivals and venues elsewhere in London.

This is an existing group and we are looking for new members to join. The group make new and unusual theatre, rather than musicals or plays.

The group is led by our friendly team – a professional director and an assistant tutor.
