The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

All-abil­i­ties ac­tors from Hor­sham district will have the chance to per­form in the­atri­cal pro­duc­tions as part of a new Art Mat­ters project called Soap Box The­atre.

Soap Box The­atre will op­er­ate as a the­atre com­pany and pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for ac­tors to play a key role in Hor­sham’s Art is… fes­ti­val.

Pro­fes­sional ac­tor and the­atre maker Jim Law­son, whose unique the­atre-mak­ing cel­e­brates each per­son’s in­di­vid­ual in­ter­est and con­tri­bu­tion, will lead Soap Box The­atre.

Hor­sham Ru­ral City Coun­cil com­mu­nity ser­vices di­rec­tor Kevin O’brien said Soap Box The­atre was de­signed to help ad­dress a need for a pro­fes­sional per­form­ing arts pro­gram in the Wim­mera.

“It’s a pro­gram that al­lows peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity to have equal ac­cess to ex­press their dis­tinct tal­ents for the stage, cul­mi­nat­ing in an en­sem­ble pro­duc­tion dur­ing this year’s Art is… fes­ti­val,” he said.

Soap Box The­atre starts on April 19 in Hor­sham’s Jubilee Hall in Roberts Ave.

It will run weekly on Thurs­days be­tween 10am and 2pm.
