The Theater Topics and Theater Topics for Kids programs are a drop off program with a closed door policy. However, there are several needs that our staff does not yet have the bandwith to support. Specific needs CO/LAB cannot independently support include:

  • Bathroom support
  • Medical support (i.e. if a participant has seizures)
  • Behavioral support (i.e. if a participant has any behaviors which may compromise the safety of the room)
  • Language support (i.e. if a participant needs a translator)  

If your actor needs support with any of the needs listed above, please register your actor and reach out to us so that we can work together to create a plan to best support your actor in the classroom.

Your theater opened a door for Steven to walk through and changed his whole perspective on life. It gave him something that thrilled him. I have never gotten such a strong hug from him as when he finished that performance and came to the audience. It was so thrilling to see how excited he was. Wow! I’ve never seen him so excited about anything!
