Thessaly Theatre is a new, unique approach to disability awareness training. The training is delivered by young disabled people and makes use of interactive theatre and live performance.

Please watch our introductory video above.

Thessaly Theatre is a group made up of Orpheus alumni. Through interactive performance, which focuses on the issues and challenges our young people have experienced in the workplace, your colleagues will have the opportunity of seeing if they can resolve some of these conflicts. This means that you will be gaining practical knowledge and experience, allowing you to make a tangible difference in your workplace. Our workshops give your company or group a concrete foundation for:

  • advancing equality opportunity
  • tackling prejudice
  • promoting understanding
  • meeting your corporate social responsibility.

The session made me challenge my own ignorance/naivety - it was very thought provoking and humbling.

Susan, Corporate Responsibility Manager, Unum.

We celebrate ability, alongside talking about disability. Furthermore, you will have the chance to ask questions and have conversations with people who have real experience of the issues being discussed.

Thessaly Theatre can provide a number of products. As well as disability awareness training, we can provide a more tailored interactive training to suit your company or group's needs. Read about our recent Internet Safety workshop for a local Beaver Scouts group here.

We hope you consider booking your disability awareness training through Thessaly Theatre. The cost is £50 per head for a two hour session which would be flexible to meet your needs.
