5  TPS Message Boards (requires ID & Password to post) / Classes & Workshops / Theater of Possibility for youth & young adults with & without disabilities on: September 29, 2014, 10:14:11 PM
Theater of Possibility (“TOP”), started in 2010, is a program for young people to practice relationship skills through acting, improvisation, collaboration and playwriting.   Taught by experienced playwright/director Lauren Goldman Marshall, TOP serves students with Asperger's, autism spectrum, ADHD and other learning differences and disabilities, as well as typically developing peers.

Based on student interest from past years, we’re aiming big this year!  We’re seeking creative, dedicated teens and young adults, with and without disabilities, to develop an original play with music, to be presented in May, 2015.  Participants should register for the fall teen class (see below) and plan to stay on through winter and spring.

In creating this work, we’ll be exploring how we can build understanding and bridge differences between people with and without disabilities. This is for caring youth who would like to be part of the process of building a more tolerant and understanding world through theater! This program is not only for youth with Asperger’s, autism, ADHD and other disabilities or learning differences, but also their siblings, friends, classmates and others interested in being natural helpers. We’ll be celebrating each person’s unique perspective and gifts.

This fall, we will be offering TOP classes on Thursdays, starting October 9, at University Heights Center in Seattle:

Teens & Young Adults, ages 13-25: 4:15-5:45 PM, cost for fall quarter $375 
Kids: ages 8-13, 6-7 PM, cost for fall quarter $300

Partial scholarships and pay-what-you-can available.

Fall quarter runs October 9-Dec 18, skipping Thanksgiving.  The Dec 18 class will go 4-8 PM for a potluck and friends & family showcase.
