BARNSLEY Civic and Concrete Youth’s new co-production will have its own West End run later this year.

The new pantomime, Sensory Cinders, is the first inclusive sensory pantomime specifically designed for audiences labelled with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PLMD).

Sensory Cinders is a new sensory pantomime adaptation of Cinderella for audiences living with PLMD, featuring original music that explores themes of identity, self-expression, transformation, magic, personas, authenticity, and connectedness.

It will be performed at the West End’s Soho Place theatre on a strictly limited run from November 1 until November 5.

Anthony Baker, chief executive at Barnsley Civic, said: “All of us at Barnsley Civic are thrilled to be working in partnership with Concrete Youth and to co-produce Sensory Cinders.

“Concrete Youth are an outstanding company who deliver world class work hosting and supporting Concrete Youth on their creative journey with this work is an exciting opportunity for Barnsley Civic to be at the forefront of work created for people labelled with profound and multiple learning disabilities.”

Bella Streeton, director of the pantomime, added: “It’s been exciting to work with such well respected organisations like the National Theatre Studio and Barnsley Civic to extend the awareness and need for sensory theatre.

“It’s been a great opportunity to work with artists from diverse backgrounds.”

Casting will be announced in due course.
