WOAPA SpecialEffect Flashmob

After weeks of secret rehearsals behind closed doors, Witney Youth Theatre school -  WOAPA - West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts delivered a surprise flashmob performance in The Clarendon Centre, Oxford on Saturday July 21st.

The local-based charity SpecialEffect have been 'adopted' by The Clarendon Centre, Oxford as their chosen charity for the coming year. To celebrate the launch of this partnership, SpecialEffect approached WOAPA to request a one-off performance to mark the occasion.

As well as being able to try out the computer equipment for themselves, shoppers were treated to a medley of songs and dance by over 60 performers from WOAPAs Adult Singing Group and Children's Theatre School.

SpecialEffect is a charity dedicated to helping ALL young people with disabilities to enjoy computer games. For these children, the majority of computer games are simply too quick or too difficult to play, and they can help them and their parents to find out which games they CAN play, and how to adapt those games that they can't.

WOAPA Adult Singing Group recently performed at 'Battstock' and Witney Music Festivals as well as appearing with the children from the saturday morning theatre school at the Witney Jubilee celebrations.
After the performance in The Clerendon Centre, one of the singers was heard to say .. "How on earth can we top that?"
Well ... watch this space!
