I am a member of Ella Performance Group. This group is made up of people with and without a learning disability and each year we work towards putting on a production. This years show was Oliver The Musical we were privileged to have a live orgistra. We worked on this project for over a year. I played the character of Old Sally she was a important part of Oliver as she noticed the necklace that was worn by Oliver's Mum, an important clue in the identity of the child.
There are quite a few characters which I enjoyed they were Nancy, Bill Sykes , Mr Bumble, Widow Corney, Fagin, Dodger & Oliver because of how well they were protrayed.
I like to think that I learned about hard work & restdiance just by listening to the guys through the tannoy.
