Out of this world

This program brings joy and theatrical excitement to young people with disabilities and their typical siblings, through theater games, dance, and imagination exercises. Theatre in motion, promotes communication cooperation, self esteem and having fun. Everything from aseop to african folk tales, are performed in a light hearted, joyus atomosphere. Friday afternoons are the highlights of my week, wondering just what we are doing next.

More Fun!

I can tell you from the fun participation of the young people with disabilities, their typical siblings, and family members--all of whom participate--everyone truly enjoys the theatre games, improvisation, drama, storytelling, music movement, and more. We were featured twice in 2017 on PBS/NJ, "State of the Arts." I have to proudly say 5 stars.
