Shebaa's Adventure to Jopplety How
a multi-sensory show for audiences with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD)
Sheeba is a sheep who has no wool. She spends her days feeling different from all of her other lamb friends and it makes her feel very sad. After hearing about the animal who holds all the answers at Jopplety How, Sheeba goes on a journey she won't forget. Along the way, she meets Harvey the Horse, Pepper the Pigeon and Alfreda the Alpaca who all helps her on her way, before she meets the most intelligent animal in the world...the Wisdom Cow of Jopplety How.
Award-winning theatre company, Concrete Youth are delighted to present Sheeba's Adventure to Jopplety How. Written by Elle Douglas and directed by Belle Streeton, this online multi-sensory production for audiences living with profound and multiple learning disabilities is perfect to ease the boredom of lockdown and open up the imaginations of your little ones.
This show has been designed for younger audiences living with PMLD. However, Concrete Youth's previous productions for younger audiences have always been enjoyed by teenagers and adults living with PMLD, despite younger themes.
The show is a pre-recorded video that can be accessed at any time, anywhere in the world. It is Makaton-integrated, designed for people living with profound and multiple learning disabilities, and involves sensory play through the use of sensory instructions throughout the show. The sensory instructions are designed for you to decide when and how let the person you care for explore the sensory items - these are everyday items from around the house to enhance the audience member's sensory enjoyment of the shows.
The film lasts 25 minutes.
