Engaging with theatre is a magical experience and can enrich communities and change lives. Daniel lives with his father and younger sister. Last year, the family's lives were turned upside down, when Daniel's mother lost her short fight against cancer - leaving them emotionally and financially stretched. Daniel has found it difficult to cope with his mother's death and his father's subsequent depression. Daniel is just 9 years of age, and enjoying the panto will enable precious family time.Why the community needs us
Unfortunately, Daniel is not alone. There are many families in need across Coventry & Warwickshire,facing significantly challenging situations, that means that a trip to the theatre is a luxury that they simply can't afford. However, enjoying a performance would not only offer them much needed quality time together but would also help to break down the sense of isolation and enable them to experience the magic of Panto this year.Our impact on the community
Your support will enable the Theatre to offer families facing difficult circumstances, with opportunities to experience theatre at the Belgrade - including our pantomime - enabling them to experience the joy, excitement and escapism that theatre can bring.
