During the redevelopment we worked with The Makaton Charity to fully integrate The Makaton Language Programme into Ribbet Ribbet Croak. We feel very fortunate to have worked with two amazing performance tutors, Jenny & Zanna, both of whom were phenomenal teachers and mentors to us, teaching us over 140 signs and symbols!
The Makaton Language Programme is used in many special educational needs schools and centres, as well as by some children's tv stars, such as Mr Tumble. Our aim has been to make Ribbet Ribbet Croak as accessible as possible, and by incorporating Makaton throughout the show, we have been able to reach out to audiences with complex needs.
We have also worked closely with Discover Children's Story Centre throughout the redevelopment and we spent a very happy Good Friday performing twice to two frog-tastic audiences!
The previous weekend we had a great day at Cranleigh Arts Centre, where we were happily reunited with our friends from The Makaton Charity
Last but not least, massive thanks to Arts Council England, who by granting us funding have enabled us to reach out to a wider audience and produce an accessible piece of high quality theatre.
