This specialized program gives participants avenues to express themselves.
Performing Arts serves as a venue to allow individuals greater independence opportunities in decision making. Approximately fifty program participants are taught life skills through the performing arts including acting, set and costume design, music, and dance.
Our program truly defines what it means to make dreams come true. Each year, Performing Arts presents productions to family, community, and other OPWDD agencies. Past productions include “West Side Story”, “Grease”, “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Mary Poppins”. We have also written original works based on the characters from “The Addams Family” and “Little Shop of Horrors”. A completely original production, “Sensorielle”, took audiences on a journey through the senses.
