Shine Out on Saturdays (SOS) is a lively performing arts club for young people with learning disabilities and/or autism. We have 2 different SOS groups: for ages 6 – 12 and for ages 13 – 17. SOS uses drama, dance, comedy, music and art to develop self-confidence and social skills. The project also provides a great opportunity for young people interested in performance to develop their skills through working with professional workshop leaders. SOS encourages creativity in a safe place with a positive and supportive environment.
Every year, SOS create and perform their own show in a Sheffield Theatre. The children take the lead with every aspect of the performance – from the initial idea to costumes, props, the soundtrack and stage direction. You can read more about this here.
