Welcome to the Ups and Downs Theatre Group’s new Blog

The goal of this new Blog is to raise awareness to the special talents our young people have. 

Over the past 25 years the club has continued to grow from strength to strength.  We now have 73 cast members, all relishing their moment in the spotlight.  Young people with Down Syndrome  can be funny, frail, musical, mischievous, willful and witty…

…just like everyone else.  

They are individuals with their own strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, hopes and dreams

Putting on a Show

The sheer quality of our performances have audiences captivated and are a tremendous success. This mixed revue / drama combination has been our winning formula ever since.  

With the clever scripts, colourful costumes, wonderful comic timing and well chosen songs, the cast delight in breaking down any pre-conceptions their audience may have had, and succeed in showing a hugely positive face of the disability. 

Fabulous performances from all our actors
