AN AUDIO immersive storytelling project led by The Gaiety Theatre and Audio Story Company is taking place this month in South Ayrshire.

Focussing on communities and groups within North Ayr, Maybole and Girvan, the Happiness Collectors will be taking children on an audio experience transporting them to happy places.

Each Happiness Collector recruit will wear wireless headphones and be led by Special Agent M wearing a bright yellow jacket and encouraging movement and fun in outdoor settings.

Jungle noises, tiger roars, sounds of the sea and more will come from shows specially set up in socially distanced locations to create a unique 20 minute experience of outdoor theatre.

Robbie Gordon, creative engagement director said: “The Gaiety Theatre are delighted to be working alongside Audio Story Company to bring some happiness to children and communities

“This entertaining and inclusive project is one of the many examples of how The Gaiety Theatre has continued to support the arts and develop audiences in other ways throughout this difficult year. We’re thrilled to be bringing some of the most exciting theatre for young people that’s been made during the pandemic.”

Audio Story Company are one of the exciting emerging Scottish arts companies who have been selected for the Gaiety Theatre’s New Scottish Companies initiative receiving a support grant and access to masterclasses.

Calum Paterson, co-founder and creative lead of Audio Story Company said: “Happiness Collectors is about bringing people and communities together, to spread joy and happiness during a time when we need it most.

“Audiences can expect a high energy performance full of fun and silliness. Using the magic of sound and the power of your imagination, audiences are transported around the world to earn their official Happiness Collector Badge.”
