Disney’s Aladdin the Musical
This month, Disney generously awarded KidsOut with complimentary tickets to see ‘Aladdin’, the new West End musical at the Prince Edward Theatre in London. 29 children and 21 adults visited the theatre to see the production earlier this month. The theatre is something a lot of children might take for granted – be it for musicals, pantomimes, dance shows. The children KidsOut support have rarely had the opportunity to visit these sorts of attractions, and so the charity strive to ensure that disadvantaged children are presented the same opportunities as their peers. This trip will provide a positive memory to look back on, and, equally as important, KidsOut’s work continues to mean we can provide something to look forward to. Not only that, it also gives disadvantaged children something positive to talk about with their peers and classmates, increasing confidence with social bonding.
The feedback from this trip has once again been wonderful:
“The theatre had a great impact on the mothers and children. It was a night of laughter. For some it was the first time visiting the theatre and they said it was a good time to bond with the other children in the refuge. Some mothers said that they are happy that it wasn’t just for the children but for the mothers to enjoy as well.” – A refuge worker
