What the Ladybird Heard Live: three forthcoming access performances

What the Ladybird Heard is based on the best-selling picture book by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, featuring two crafty robbers, one tiny ladybird, and a whole farmyard of fun!
Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len have a cunning plan to steal the farmer's fine prize cow but, little do they know, the tiniest, quietest creature of all, the Ladybird has a plan of her own. With original songs, live music, puppetry, plenty of audience participation and lots of laugh, this production is perfect for pre-school and school children and their grown ups.

The shows will take place at The Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London, W1D 7ES and the performances are as follows:
BSL Signed Interpreted Performance on Thursday 13th July at 11am:

The performance is open to all and will be signed by a British Sign Language interpreter, Jeni Draper, for families and children with hearing impairments. Our interpreter Jeni will be integrated into the show, so will move around the stage with the performers.
Audio-Described Performance on Thursday 20th July at 11am:

The audio-description by Vocaleyes for the blind and partially sighted is a live verbal commentary providing information on the visual elements such as the movement and expressions of the production as it unfolds. If you book for this performance, you will receive: a CD from Vocaleyes providing details about the production; an opportunity to participate in the pre-show touch tour; and a large print/Braille version of the cast sheet.
Relaxed Performance on Tuesday 8th August at 2pm:

Relaxed Performances are specially designed performances that have been adapted to reduce anxiety and create a supportive atmosphere for people with autism spectrum conditions, learning disabilities, and other sensory and communication disorders.
We are delighted to be able to offer a discounted access rate of £9.25 per ticket (50% off Band A tickets), plus book ten or more tickets and get the 11th ticket free! Additional teacher and carer tickets available on request. To book tickets, please call ACCESS on 0330 333 4815 or email [email protected]
