message from Emily Skeldon

Founder and Artistic Director of In My Shoes Theatre Group.
Our production this evening at the Millgate Arts Centre marks our first debut performance in a theatre setting with kind permission from the creator to perform The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse musical for schools with our cast on a proper stage.

The story of the BMFH feels like the perfect story to bring to life as the message of kindness, acceptance, bravery and not being afraid to show your true self are at the heart of the work we do at In My Shoes. The performance will also create a diverse opportunity for our community to get together to enjoy a performance that raises awareness of disability led theatre, promotes inclusivity, acceptance, and boosts community spirit. We have been focusing on physical theatre and how we can use our bodies to express meaning and storytelling.

I am incredibly proud of our young artists for dreaming, believing, and achieving.
