Miss Saigon a hit with Theatre Group!

Our regular blind and partially sighted theatre group had a great night out in Edinburgh this week when they went to ‘see’ Miss Saigon.

The show was at the Festival Theatre and everyone praised the welcoming and accomodating staff. Before the show, Theatre Group members were invited backstage to feel the props and discuss the different scenes that would be on stage later.

On taking their seats, everyone was given access to an audio description which detailed the actions and set changes as well as the dialogue of the play.

The trip to Miss Saigon was the latest show for the Theatre Group which typically meets several times a year when a new show comes to town. Past shows have included; Jersey Boys, Wicked, Beautiful, The Steamie, Sister Act and Mama Mia. The next show will be An Officer and a Gentleman in July followed by Calendar Girls in October.

Trip organiser Alison Gall said:

“A huge thanks to the staff of the Festival theatre for being so good with our group. It was a fantastic show and everyone had a great time.”
