Action Ability Belfast drama production group is proud to announce its continued partnership with the Grand Opera House Belfast for its fantastic Northern Ireland original scripted production “Yeeha I’ll Tell Me Ma” which will be showcased on Friday 18th September 2015 at the Grand Opera House.
With music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and 10s the show has something for all the family. Filled with an eclectic mix of humour, emotion and thought provoking dramatization it’s a show not to be missed.
The production which is being performed by people with a disability age 12 to 18+ aims to capture the imagination of the greater Northern Ireland public with its unique characterisation and witty humour amidst the fantastic backdrop of the music from generations past and present.
Joe McNally Senior project Worker with Action Ability Belfast gives an insight into the show’s challenging storyline.
“The show centres upon religious and cultural division which continues to form barriers within our communities, this unfortunately is something we are all too familiar with”.
“The group have come up with a script that is funny, challenging and thought provoking”.
“The story transcends into a hilarious exploration of why our communities are divided and inspires the characters to try to find a solution their own political representatives do not seem to be able to achieve”.
Actress Grace Tobin who plays the lead role Belle says “the experience we gained from performing Oh Mummy Mia to a full house at the Grand Opera House and working with Tim McGarry was unbelievable, I never dreamt in a million years that I would even be on the Grand Opera Stage never mind perform to a full house”.
Grand Opera House Ross Hickey said “We are extremely excited about hosting the new Action Ability Belfast production of
“Yeeha I’ll Tell Me Ma” If past show experiences are anything to go by we should have a full house and everyone will have an evening they won’t forget”.
Also appearing as very special guests are the fantastic Motown Brothers. Motown Brothers band member Darryl Hendrix said. “Wow the Grand Opera House Belfast, what an opportunity this is for us to perform at such a fantastic venue and work with such a wonderful cast of people”.
Action Ability Belfast aims to promote the social inclusion of all persons with a disability into the social, leisure, economic and cultural life of their community.
AAB currently works throughout North, South, East and West Belfast.
DUP junior minister Jonathan Bell said “I am so glad I have had the opportunity to watch the show as I missed Oh Mummy Mia 2 years ago, the Gleease show was fantastic and I am very humbled and honoured to have been invited, well done to everyone involved”.
Action Ability Belfast programme manager Elizabeth Gracey explained “It has been a very long and fruitful journey for the cast, staff and volunteers working on the production, they have all excelled and should be very proud of what they have achieved, a big thumbs up from all of us at AAB”. “We are all looking forward to see what the crew come up with for the next production”
