New! Introduction to Theatre Studies: the Actors Toolbox! Ages 17+ image

This drama program is specifically made for those adults (age 17 and up) with autism and other developmental disabilities residing in Southeast Wisconsin who are interested in flexing your imaginations and stretching your interactive skills in a supportive and trusting environment. By engaging in this creative program, you will develop more flexible thinking while improving emotional recognition and containment. These improvisation exercises, built from personal circumstances, will allow you to devise and create your own unique workshop production. This program is created in conjunction with ACAP (Adaptive Community Approach Program) of Waukesha, WI. By playing theatre games and performing imaginative exercises, our student actors learn to trust others and gain self-confidence as they begin immersion in environments such as college or the workplace. You will participate in lively activities within a supportive, structured environment that celebrates your unique talents, creativity and interests. You will use and develop important recognition and evaluative tools common to everyday environments.
