CO/LAB Theater Group is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing Creative Opportunities without Limits And Boundaries. CO/LAB exists to offer individuals with developmental disabilities a creative and social outlet through theater arts. 


Through our programming, we encourage the actors to collaborate as an ensemble, as well as discover their individual voices. We create a safe and judgment-free environment that provides participants the opportunity to express themselves both in class and on stage. We seek to honor and celebrate the individual, transcending the label of a disability.

CO/LAB held its first class in the fall of 2011 with just 13 actors. Since then, we have become an established non-profit, reaching over 500 individuals with developmental disabilities through 400 theater workshops. Our team has worked with actors in four cities to create over 20 original shows. With our crew of staff, volunteers and supporters, we continue to come up with new ways to improve our programs and grow the organization.

All of our programming is offered at little to no cost to the participant. We aim to provide access to all those who need us, regardless of financial background.

What an amazing talent you have for bringing out insights and art from people who often don’t get the opportunities to show what they can really do.
