Riverside Theatre Parramatta

Riverside Theatre Parramatta

Beyond the Square is a non-profit organisation set up for persons working towards creativity with disabilities. Every 12 months around Christmas time, they hold an event at Riverside Theatre in Parramatta.

On Wednesday the 19th of November 2014, RRT helped at Parramatta Riverside Theatre catering for the 400 persons with disabilities and their support personnel.

There was a lot of coordination involved in getting all the 400 people into the theatre, ……  CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE TO READ

    Well done to both RRT & the performers!! I have a family member with a disability and this sort of thing is excellent to see. 🙂

    I admire anyone helping people with disabilities, it must be very rewarding for the carers.

    It’s great to see these people being looked up to with the respect and being treated with the dignity and compassion that every human being should be treated with. As a disabled person myself, it’s very heart-warming to see the PBCC doing so much towards this event. There is often a ‘gulf’ that is hard to ‘bridge’ between those with disability and those without (usually due to a misunderstanding, or simply that a non-disabled person might not know what to say..) and this is a great way to bridge that gulf. Many, many thanks for showing here that the disabled are every bit as human anyone else. This sort of service goes a very long way towards bringing people together, in order for us all to understand each other better 🙂

    Good job! It is very good to see that every human being has special talents, even if they are disabled. Well done actors and their helpers! 🙂

    Also a big round of applause goes to RRT for their, once again, untireless service to the community!! Keep up your hard work RRT volunteers!
