Story

Musical theatre gives children an opportunity to express themselves, be exposed to difficult situations and how to manage these situations in a creative way. Through the art of dance, acting and music they learn new forms of communication in a range of unique ways. Exposure to the arts can help improve children’s academic performance and develop their self-expression and social skills.

I am passionate about musical theatre because I love music and it is a powerful platform to tell stories that are not always easy to tell without judgement or offending. Musical theatre makes you form a connection with people and impact their lives by conveying the message through the emotion of the songs. Evadne Bygrave, Artistic Director.

The production is based on Dido Belle, one of Britain's first aristocrats of African descent, the daughter of Maria Belle, an enslaved African and Sir John Lindsay, a British naval officer. Dido grew up as gentle lady at Kenwood House under the guardianship of her great uncle, William Murray, 1st Earl of Mansfield.

This project will give children and communities who are underrepresented in theatre, an opportunity to be part of community musical production, while raising awareness of individuals who have made important contributions to British history.

      A lovely production bringing children together around their shared story with many community, personal and health benefits for children engaging in the arts. Very worthy project.
