Theatre group making stars of autism

Belfast arts group, Star Theatre is coming to Liverpool with their Titanic show "Built In Belfast" at the ‘The Black-E’ on November 28th supporting autistic artists. The company was started to help autism people’s skills in mixing with the community. The show has it own unique brand of comedy and drama. This makes it easy for the actors to build their conference to entertain the crowds. Star theatre has made ‘Built in Belfast’ the show as equally entertaining to the crowds as to the autism cast. Has light hearted jokes, original new songs, plus some classic old ones.  This makes a great time for everyone, and for all the family.  

 The story is set in the time of the ‘White Star Line’ ship the Titanic.  Character ‘Granny Lily’ takes a trip down memory lane back through her life’s journey from Ireland’s Ards Peninsula to the smoking big city. She tries to make her way in the linen mills to her family in war torn France.  For Lily, it was a very different world with coal heating, gas-lit streets and thousands of low paid but jolly workers.

The Victorian building was picked for the show, helping visitors to be transported back in time. 

Original music was written and produced by Ruan McCready from Belfast/Liverpool. Singing performances are from ‘Lily’ played by ‘Camden festival’ actress, Charmain Wohlmann from London.

Miss Marion Kenny, Star’s fonder gave her views ‘"Built in Belfast play is Star Theatre Company a NITA member, first flourish with collaborative theatre pieces by autistic disabled writers and actors.”, and “The group's aim is to promote and produce new ideas and skills in the arts especially among the young, disabled and educationally disadvantaged Northern Ireland communities for the artist's personal development through drama and movement.”

Doors open for the ‘Built in Belfast’ show at The Black-E on Friday November 28th at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10.

Tickets are £10+£1.25 admin/postage from
