The Actables are LinkAble's drama groups. The groups take place on Sundays during term time. The Advanced group meet between 1.00pm and 3.00pm and the Intermediate group meet between 3.00pm and 5.00pm. The drama sessions offer the opportunity to those over the age of 16 to develop their performance skills in a totally inclusive and supported environment.
There are two groups which are run by drama professionals. Those who attend cover a variety of subjects using the medium of drama to help them gain an understanding of social situations with the ultimate aim of performing together in front of an audience. These drama groups have been invaluable in helping our service users to gain confidence as individuals and amongst their peers.
You do not need to have acted or taken part in any drama activity previously to attend the group as activities are adapted to meet the needs of each individual attendee. There are no auditions and the group can be joined at any point during a term.
There is a cost to service users for this activity.
LinkAble receives no statutory funding for its Adult Services and aims to keep costs to service users as low as possible through its fundraising activities.
