SAVVY has ambition on a GIANT scale!
At SAVVY, we believe that every person, irrespective of their ability or circumstance can derive joy through theatre. Our productions are adapted to show members unique abilities and are always lively, engaging and unconventional.
And there are no auditions to take part.
Our members come from some of the country's most disadvantaged communities and groups including adults with learning disabilities, young people with SEMH challenges and people with mental health issues, at-risk of isolation or living in poverty.
Support our upcoming Summer Season of Shakespeare
SAVVY has a history of re-inventing Shakespeare!
Our last sell-out production involved taking over Beddington Park, with audiences following the action through the park that included fairies in trees and lovers sword fighting in the River Wandle.
More recently our show, "Jack & The Beanstalk, A Steampunk Pantomime" became the first post COVID theatre production at Fairfield Hall where we brought members together in a joyous celebration event that re-invigorated the local community.
NEXT Summer our aim is to surprise audiences again with re-invented Shakespeare that play with the stories and create unique theatre experiences. We will showcase a medley of stories such as The Taming of the Shrew as a Drag Show and Twelfth Night as the Acoustic Sessions, with auditions for Macbeth and the return of our lovely Players from The Dream.
For many of our beneficiaries, SAVVY is their only avenue for social interaction and cultural engagement. It helps them to make friends, learn new skills, develop belief in themselves and enjoy their achievements.
SAVVY is a registered charity and relies on project funding, ticket sales and contributions to our various campaigns, in order to maintain and develop our ongoing programme of youth and community work.
We are working towards becoming a National Portfolio Organisation with Arts Council England, to enable us to grow and move away from being solely project funded.
If you would like to know how you can make a regular contribution or would like to discuss sponsoring one of our upcoming projects, please contact our Development Director, Shuba Rao: firstname.lastname@example.org
