Ant & Cleo – The Musical!
Ant & Cleo – The Musical! was a fun, family friendly adaptation of the story of Antony and Cleopatra by Talking Birds and Orchestra of the Swan, collaborating with pupils from three schools (two catering for special educational needs). Ninety children aged nine to eleven were part of the production, supported by four professional actor/singers as well as an eleven-piece orchestra. The production aimed to develop the children’s singing and musical skills, and to change attitudes towards young people with learning and physical disabilities.
Working with Helen Stallard Communications, I gained coverage, including reviews in the Birmingham Post and Stratford-upon-Avon Herald as well as a broadcast interview on ITV Central News.
