We believe every student is “dramatically unique” and that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the arts.
This class is designed to empower students with unique needs by providing a safe and nurturing environment where they can learn the basics of theatre before transitioning to another class or taking part in a production.  Students will also be given the opportunity for socialization, to learn communication skills, and to practice situational coping skills.
Each student will have the opportunity to participate in at least one performance each season.
This class is graciously sponsored by Angie Cotton-Jones of Go Realty.
