Mousetrap Theatre Projects is launching a new theatre audience club for deaf 16-25 year-olds, with offers to some of London’s top theatre productions for less than the price of a cinema ticket.
Members of the scheme, called AccessTheatre4£5, will benefit from:
- £5 tickets to BSL interpreted or captioned performances in London’s best theatres
- Extra events like pre-show or post-show talks with the actors or creative teams
- A Mousetrap representative at each event to greet and support members
- The chance to join Mousetrap Theatre Projects Youth Forum
- Social events
The first event is at Disney’s The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre on Sunday 5 February at 2.30 pm with an accessible pre-show talk with the creative team at 1.00pm.
Only members are eligible for this offer, and future theatre offers. Every ticket holder for each event must be aged 16-25 (no parents or younger siblings) and either a signed-up member or a companion (also aged 16-25). Once members have signed up, they will receive details via email of how to book the latest offer.
