Under The Stars and On Stage

Under The Stars and On Stage

Members of performing arts organisation Under The Stars will be acting up at the end of this month and the start of next – with two separate shows at the Crucible Theatre.

Freedonia takes place on Tuesday May 31 and The Many Journeys of Maria Rossini the following evening, both in the Studio Theatre starting at 7pm.

Freedonia is set in a dystopian world where your every move and thought is monitored at all times by The Patient Ones. If have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear. You may only read news sources sanctioned by The Patient Ones. Do not dream. Dreaming is forbidden. But In the shadows, someone is planting seeds of hope and passing secret messages.

There will be a short post-show discussion after that performance for the audience to find out more about Under the Stars.

The Many Journeys of Maria Rossini is set in sixteenth-century Sicily, where the population encounters erupting volcanoes, plagues and an overbearing and unsympathetic Baronessa, who rules with an iron fist. However the peasants may have a saviour in Maria Rossini,

Both shows last an hour and thirty minutes with no interval. To find out more and to buy tickets see here.

The Sheffield-based charity uses the performing arts to enhance the lives of people with learning disabilities and/or autism. It is based at Unit 2 – 57 Burton Street, Hillsborough, Sheffield, S6 2HH.

Under The Stars can also be found on Facebook and Twitter

It was also recently featured on BBC Breakfast with its nightclub events, which take place at The Leadmill (7-10:30pm) and are open to people with learning disabilities and/or autism and their friends. All the DJs have learning disabilities and/or autism too.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
