Hocus Pocus are a unique group of actors who meet regularly at the mac in Cannon Hill Park to devise, improvise and develop performance pieces and productions from their own interests and experiences or from ideas that they want to explore.
2014 marks the twenty first year for Hocus Pocus Theatre Group and though they have until now been part of the provision of local government funding, the group find themselves falling between the cracks . If we can raise the funds we wish to widen the groups membership and attract more people with learning disabilities to join from across the city of Birmingham and try and make the group sustainable into the future.
We want to make a new show called "If The Shoe Fits" which will be based on the group members ideas about running, walking, shoes and all things feet. With inspiration from Cinderella and The Wizard of Oz we plan to tour to SEN settings in Birmingham as a celebration of the groups twenty first anniversary. This money here will help with publicity, set and costume and the touring of the final performance.
