Welcome to Mischief!

Mischief! has been created especially for people with sensory issues, learning disabilities and/or autism, and those living with dementia. It's a 60-minute interactive performance, workshop and celebration featuring comic out-and-about characters, interactive sensory play, and a special mask theatre workshop.

Learning Outcomes
With tried-and-tested interactive fun for all, Mischief:

  •     Gives everyone involved, regardless of their sensory differences, the opportunity to play, interact and immerse themselves
  •     Enables everyone to explore their capacity for happiness and laughter and the immense benefits these bring to our well being
  •     Models different ways for supporters/carers to encourage improvisation, spontaneity and creativity, and gives permission to explore
  •     Enables schools to ensure they meet arts and creativity benchmarks in their learning
