Drama programs and workshops for youth and adults on the autism spectrum/all abilities in order to support social and emotional well-being while providing opportunities to practice skills that enhance communication in real life situations. We are now operating 100% online and will continue to do so until it is absolutely safe for all to work in a studio once again.

Programs are for individuals who want to take drama classes and can communicate with teachers and other students. We invite prospective students to take a free class to determine whether they will enjoy participating.

We have expanded our teacher training programs for adults interested in learning the techniques and methods of applied drama for improving outcomes in their special ed, theatre or general classrooms. Inquire at for information about upcoming trainings.
