Exciting Spring News!


King Lear hits The Crucible Theatre

KING LEAR RETOLD HITS SHEFFIELD THEATRES

We are so proud that our Monday theatre group are taking their adapted version of King Lear to the prestigious Crucible Theatre stage in July.

The show is their modern interpretation of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy.  Mixing the language of today with the physicality and ritual of a world now deceased, King Lear Re-told shows us the violent and tragic consequences of trying to quench an insatiable thirst for power, reputation and love. 

Tickets are £7 and available from Sheffield Theatres box office


LEARNING DISABILITY WEEK – MONDAY 17th to 23rd JUNE

On Monday 17th June you can join us between 11.00am and 1.00pm to see our fabulous Monday singing group perform with the Shared Lives project on Sheffield Moor.

We will update you with our full list of activities on our website and social media platforms nearer to the event.

ONE OF OUR FABULOUS ACTORS TO APPEAR ON HIT DAYTIME SOAP OPERA

Massive congrats to Ian Troops from our Monday theatre group. 

Ian bagged himself an extras slot on the hit daytime TV soap ‘Doctors’, and went to the BBC Studios last month to film.  Here he is with Rhuma from the cast.

The show will be aired on Thursday 6th June on BBC1.  We will be shouting about it A LOT, so you are unlikely to miss it!


NO CRUEL SUMMER FOR UNDER THE STARS AT MUSIC IN THE GARDENS!

We are delighted to have been chosen as one of the official charities for music in the gardens this year!  Look out for us at the Bananarama gig on Friday 5th July as we sell programmes and pass the charity buckets.  All money collected across the three nights of the concerts will be collated and split between six worthy causes.

We would love to see some of our fabulous Under the Stars tribe at the event.  Tickets are £35 each, but if you book directly with us you won’t need to pay a booking fee for any of the concerts this year.



Get in touch at claire@underthestars.org.uk before Friday 31st May if you’d like to order tickets.
