Our National Project To Bring Captioning To Live Theatre Performances For School Children In Year 3 And Above!
We truly believe that the Arts play an important role in a child’s education.
The GoTheatrical! Kids project seeks to bring captioning (English subtitles) to children’s live theatre performances.
We believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience and participate in the Arts, and through captioning, live theatre is accessible to so many children with a hearing loss.
We are delighted that so many wonderful Australian venues and production companies are participating in the GoTheatrical! Kids project. And it’s not too late for more venues to get involved. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn more about the project or join the list!
A complete list of 2012 children’s productions at participating venues will be available within the next few weeks for distribution to schools across Australia. Once the list is prepared, we will be calling for expressions of interest from schools interested in attending one or more of the particular performances on offer.
GoTheatrical! Kids would not be possible without the participation and support of so many venues, production companies and organisations.
We sincerely thank each one of you for making GoTheatrical! Kids a reality:
