The DH Ensemble is pleased to announce we have been awarded an R&D opportunity by Sheffield Theatres. We are embarking on two weeks of Research and Development for our new show, an adaptation of the children's book Mathilda and the Orange Balloon, suitable for children aged 3 to 8 and those young at heart. We are collaborating with writer/dramaturg Jess Kaufman to develop this show. 

Ben Wilson, Agent for Change at Sheffield Theatres: "This project is run as part of Ramps On The Moon. Ramps On The Moon is a nationwide project run by 6 theatres around England of which we at Sheffield Theatres is one. The aim of Ramps is to make positive, long term changes to how these 6 venues think about access and dis ability. My role here at Sheffield Theatres is to try and inspire and instigate that change."

We are honoured to have been chosen for this opportunity and excited about developing our relationship with Sheffield Theatres.
