Cascade Educational Theatre Company

Modern life can be brutal for many disadvantaged children, older people and people with illness or mental health problems. That’s why in 1995 we formed the charity Cascade. We focus on helping people build the self esteem, confidence and life skills necessary to take back control of their lives.

We primarily use drama and theatre techniques but utilise a wide variety of arts disciplines to help communities grow and individuals develop skills, have fun and achieve their potential. We draw on twenty talented individuals with an arts and theatre background; all trained in group work, facilitation skills and training techniques. We are passionate about helping people grow and achieve their dreams.

In Cascade Workshops and Training Sessions,using techniques specifically chosen to enable our clients, we create a safe atmosphere in which people can develop parts of themselves which have lain undiscovered. We use cutting edge discoveries about how the brain works to enable people to maximise their potential, take a few risks and try approaches they may never have dreamt of before. Everything we do is aimed at helping people unleash their full potential and - we get results! All this is in a supportive, fun environment where participants will be learning without even realising it. No embarrassment, no discomfort, just an inspiring way to make positive changes to their lives.

‘I can’t believe just how much you have revived the community and to see what those children have achieved is amazing. ’
