In their next production, The Wolds Wonders Theatre Group for adults with learning disabilities will be showcasing works they developed and performed as part of the Royal Philharmonic Society (RPS) 2018 Awards.
The Yesterday and Tomorrow People will be performed in Pocklington Arts Centre on Wednesday 25 April at 1pm.
The story is about a group of ramblers who explore a waterfall and accidentally enter a mysterious, whirling time vortex that takes them on an exciting and often frightening journey through time.
The initial idea and the storyline was developed by Wolds Wonders members assisted by professionals from the world of drama, music and dance and the performance promises to be a thoroughly brilliant afternoon’s entertainment.
The songs in the production, including the catchy title song, In Our Time Machine were composed by Wolds Wonders members with the help of classical composer James Redwood and members of the Sinfonia Viva classical orchestra. Wolds Wonders singing will be accompanied by a recording of Sinfonia Viva produced specifically for Wolds Wonders.
This was part of the Classically Yours Programme, Orchestras Live in Partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council, which has just been shortlisted for the RPS 2018 Award for Audiences and Engagement.
The Orchestras Live in East Yorkshire involved a series of workshops with community groups and was aptly entitled Music in Motion.
It took place between June 2017 and January 2018 with a concert in Pocklington Arts Centre in September 2017 and a grand finale concert at Bridlington Spa in January 2018.
It involved two other local groups: Stamford Bridge Community Choir who composed and performed a moving and complex song called Time to Breathe; Stamford Bridge Primary School who composed and performed a lively, imaginative song imploring us to join in with their Space Party.
