Drama is a fun and creative way to explore, improve speaking and listening skills, and discover new talents. It is a wonderful form of self-expression that can also help with focus and concentration. It helps to exercise the imagination and strengthen cognitive skills. And it’s a great way to use your creativity! Our activities are suitable for people at all levels of physical and mental ability. Those with difficulty memorizing are welcome to read from a script, and we provide large print scripts for those with visual challenges. On top of all this, drama is tremendously fun!
- Picture Storytelling – A special program for people with cognitive challenges. We look at interesting pictures and help you create a story around it. By taking the pressure off of memory and using imagination instead, the program has been found to be a wonderful tool in easing and encouraging communication. (1 hour class)
- Introduction to Acting: Drama Delights – This class uses drama games and non-competitive fun activities to help strengthen creativity, observation, and cognitive skills. No previous drama experience is necessary. (1 hour class)
- Showtime: Perform a Play – Choose from a variety of scripts of varying length and with a varying number of characters. You can choose a one-person play, or we will help you perform all of the characters. Performances can be anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours long. If memorizing is too challenging for you, we can utilize a “Reader’s Theater Forum” where you read from the script during the performance. (Time varies. Please contact us to discuss options and pricing)
- Memoir Performance – A unique way to commemorate your life story. We help you craft a monologue or script from your life experiences. You can act out all the characters, invite others to perform with you, or you can create a monologue. Then on performance night you can invite family, friends, or whomever you would like to watch the show! (Time varies. Please contact us to discuss options and pricing)
