Sharing Joy is a theatre show especially created by Vamos Theatre for those living with Dementia, professional carers, home carers, and families. Everyone is invited!

“You bring us noise and laughter, and make us feel alive”. Doris aged 102

Sharing Joy is a huge celebration of life and all its joys, using music, dance, nostalgia, masks, puppetry and laughter, to bring pleasure and meaning to everyone involved.

The show is set in the 1940s and 1950s. We’ll meet courting couples, wartime nurses, a singing dog, and even Elvis himself – who may make an appearance as a special guest! There’s plenty of music to bring back memories, dancing to enjoy or join in with, swinging dresses and best suits. It’s a playful and joyous show that encourages everyone to take part and to express themselves.

Vamos Theatre is the UK’s leading full mask theatre company, taking its funny and fearless brand of wordless theatre across the world since 2006. Vamos Theatre’s style marries full mask with strong visual design and original soundtracks. At its heart, is the belief that the wordless skills of full mask theatre, can encourage empathy and understanding in all of us.

This performance is supported by Arts Council England, and Crich Area Dementia Friends.

Attendance is by ticket only (£7.00), and can be booked through David on 01773 853 260. Priority will be given to those living with Dementia, and their immediate carers.

A 2-course hot lunch will be available after the show to those who want it. Lunch tickets must be pre-booked, no later than Wednesday 4th July, at a cost of £6.00 per person. Please mention this when booking.
