OpenSpot Theatre-Winter 2023
We're so excited to be back partnering with our friends at OpenSpot Theatre. OpenSpot Theatre’s mission is to provide a fun, creative, and inclusive arts experience that is accessible to all people. Through their rehearsal and performance process, students will experience personal affirmation, empowerment, and build important life skills.
For 6-weeks our participants will explore the three pillars of theatre (singing, acting, and dancing), theatre games/activities, and for our younger students, life skills (eye contact, manners, etc).
Each class is led by trained theatre professional and culminates in a live performance for family and friends at the end of the 6 weeks. The process of learning about the theatre and rehearsing a live show promotes teamwork, cooperation, belonging, work ethic, memory, leadership, social skills and maybe most importantly; it’s fun!
This program is open to individuals with Down syndrome ages 10 and up. Each session will take place at the Crosby Conference Center, located at the Toledo Botanical Gardens (5403 Elmer Drive, Toledo) and begin at 6pm and end at 7pm.
