Kids In Control

The KIC All-Ability Physical Theatre programme at the Lyric Theatre is open to all young people, regardless of disability.

The theatre has exemplary disabled access and is committed to equality of esteem in its programming. The criteria that apply for any theatrical work at the Lyric also apply to this programme, the principal one being the striving for artistic excellence.

KIC’s work at the Lyric offers young people a quality encounter with an artistic team that specializes in authentic integrative theatre practice. Students from mainstream schools who have undergone training in support for disabled youth performers support the team each year. The resulting production at the Lyric will be a celebration of the natural gifts of each participant.
