FAB group’s film premiere

Our Fabulous and Brilliant (FAB) group have been working with the theatre company, Twisting Ducks, to produce a fantastic film all about being cast away on a desert island.

And they’ve just watched the premiere of their production, ‘Weird Twister’, thanks to the wonders of Zoom.

Youth workers, Teresa Bromilow and Rebecca George, joined in the drama alongside young people from the FAB group as you can see in the video at the end of this story.

They worked with actor and drama teacher, Mat Hobbins, on the digital project, developed thanks to funding from the Doyly Carte Charitable Trust.

Mat said it had been a fantastic experience.

“It was great working with the young people. I found them to be incredibly confident, amazingly creative and a joy to work with”

Haydon, one of the young people who took part from the FAB group, said: “I’ve never done acting before and I would definitely consider drama again.”

And Denise, another group member, said:
“The thing I loved most was getting to use my imagination and making up awesome stories. It’s helped me with my confidence. I’ve never had the confidence to sing in front of people before. FAB group has built my confidence.”
The Twisting Ducks Theatre Company was developed by a group of adults with learning disabilities who shared a passion for performing and a desire to create original work that was representative of their lives and the issues most important to them
Their mission is to change lives through theatre by removing barriers to participation and creating accessible opportunities in the community for everyone to explore and develop their creative talents.
