HANDS-ON THEATRE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
As part of a major community arts partnership, Community CPS Australia and Windmill Theatre, in close consultation with Camp Quality, have developed the Hands-On Theatre program.
Community CPS Australia and Windmill Theatre hosted a group of fifty Camp Quality children at one of Windmill’s October performances of Circus Incognitus.
Camp Quality is a children’s family cancer charity, aiming to create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia through fun therapy.
Artistic Director Rose Myers said this special outing was part of Windmill and Community CPS’ “Hands-on Theatre” program, a set of tailored workshops conducted by experienced Windmill artists to enhance the creative experience and increase the literary skills of young people.
“Community CPS is a long-time partner of Windmill and we are thrilled to enrich its ongoing support of Camp Quality by providing fun therapy through a trip to the theatre. This time the kids will have the chance to get hands-on after the show through learning how to juggle and perform other circus tricks,” said Ms Myers.
