Mousetrap Theatre Projects
We know that a number of charities use and love our service, which inspired us to launch our ‘Addison Lee For Me, Addison Lee For Them’ Christmas campaign. We strive to be at your service, but we want to be at their service now, more than ever before. For every app booking made in the month of December 2016, we donated our services to charity, allowing the twenty chosen charities to use our services for free during 2017.
MTP is a theatre education charity dedicated to bringing the magic of theatre into the lives of disadvantaged young people, believing London’s world-class theatre should be open to all young people irrespective of their cultural, social or economic background.
They take over 15,000 young people to see a top London production each year, enhancing the experience with education programmes in schools and communities, using theatre as a catalyst to explore ideas, learn new skills, develop creativity and offer new perspectives.
Mousetrap Theatre Project has been using Addison Lee’s services this summer to bring families to and from their Envision day at Half a Sixpence at the Noel Coward Theatre. Envision is one of 20 various programmes they run with young people, whereby visually impaired young people spend a full day at a West End theatre. Activities included a pre-show drama workshop, a tour of the set, plus meeting several of the cast members and seeing their costumes.
The families then took their seats for an audio-described performance of this award winning musical. By being able to provide taxi’s removed the difficulty of families bringing their visually impaired children on public transport, and allowed everyone to simply enjoy the magic of the day.
“It was brilliant, (my son) loved it and he gets so much out of the workshops to then help bring him into the play, and I could cry because it also allows the rest of us in the family to just sit back for a short while and enjoy a little bit too.”
