Get Changed is thrilled to be leading a drama workshop at D'ArtsFest on Saturday 9 July. This is your opportunity to come and have fun with props and costumes! You will even have a chance to give a mini performance during the day!
Here are all the important details for the fun weekend ahead:
Get Changed entertained audiences with their Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland -inspired show at Castle Drogo on Saturday.
Their drama piece, The Queen’s Garden Party... and the Case of the Missing Tarts!, was performed in collaboration with Petroc Community Link Drama Group from Tiverton and other newly invited participants with learning disabilities from around the locality.
The National Trust Castle Drogo provided the perfect setting as the play was performed on the croquet lawn and featured all the much-loved characters from Lewis Carroll’s book.
Members of the audience praised the performance and said that it was "superb and inspirational".
Jules Walker, the Artistic Director at Get Changed, said, “In 2015 Get Changed launched an 18-month project to tour the South West telling Alice’s story using a variety of art forms. I‘m so proud of the participants: they have created and rehearsed unique performances for several events and festivals and we’ve had a great time performing across Devon and Cornwall.”
Get Changed participants in collaboration with Petroc Community Link Drama Group will be performing The Queen's Garden Party... and the Case of the Missing Tarts! at Castle Drogo this Saturday. This will be the final chapter of their Alice's Adventures in Wonderland -inspired project, so please come and see all the much-loved characters from Lewis Carroll's book.

Get Changed performed two contemporary dances over the weekend, first at the Exeter Respect Festival on Saturday and then at the Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration in Okehampton on Sunday. Both performances were loved by the audiences.
A member of the audience on Sunday said, “I was very impressed with the Get Changed performance. The Company did a brilliant job and are a very talented bunch.”
Another member of audience commented, “What a fantastic job you do! Loved it!”
Here are some photos taken at the Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration:
Reuben Cooke, Technical Manager at Redrow (West Country) commented, “The tournament was a fun event all round – everyone was smiling and to know that we’ve made Get Changed £2,500 better off is a great feeling.”
We would like to thank Redrow and everyone who was involved in the football tournament. As Get Changed Chairman Christine Munkenbeck says, “We’re so grateful to all those who came along to support Get Changed and we can’t thank Redrow enough for the positive effect that their continued support has had on our charity.”
We will be performing contemporary dances at two events this weekend: on Saturday we'll be at the Exeter Respect Festival and on Sunday we'll perform at The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration in Okehampton.
We've been busy rehearsing for both events, this week being the last opportunity to perfect our moves! You can see some rehearsal photos here:
