Featuring two Waitākere College ISC Students, Harmony and Jarita, this is sure to be a fantastic production! Friday 28th - Saturday 30th July at Glen Eden Playhouse Theatre
Performers from Glass Ceiling Arts Collective’s West Auckland Inclusive Youth Theatre take to the stage from the 28th to 30th of July at Glen Eden Playhouse Theatre for a production that is set to smash the glass ceiling for disabled young people.
“I love the singing,” says Harmony, who plays a cheerleader in the show, her infectious smile lighting up the rehearsal room. “It’s the friendships for me”, says Lily Mae who plays the tough, street smart Rizzo, “ and the love that goes into making shows”. But for Karen Moore who has been a support person for Glass Ceiling since the very beginning it’s about acceptance; “ What I love is seeing everyone become a big loving family! It’s a place where you can be you! And nobody blinks an eye, we all just love and accept each other no matter what we do or say.”
GCAC youth programmes provide weekly sessions at low cost or no cost, employing support workers for those that need it and making sure they use physically accessible venues like Glen Eden Playhouse which is a rarity with a wheelchair lift to the stage and back stage accessible bathroom.
