Into The Blue is Replay’s wonderful watery adventure performed in special school hydropools, designed for those aged 5-18 with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties and / or Autism. With a sung score by award-winning composer David Goodall, this blissful journey takes its audiences through gentle waves, bubbling whirlpools and out to the open sea.
Based in Northern Ireland, Replay Theatre Company makes innovative, quality work for everyone under the age of 19: from the tiniest babies to the oldest teenagers, for children and young people with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, for school groups, for families, for festivals.
Our audience is at the heart of everything we do and we shape each show through creative consultation with its intended audience, and those who live and work with them.
And from what our audience tells us, the end result is shows which really work. We tour locally, nationally and internationally – taking shows to venues from Belfast to Broadway and lots of places in between. In 2015, Replay’s work toured to three continents – and to every single Sure Start in Belfast.
In 2015, Replay also created the world’s first BabyDay – www.belfastbabyday.com
