The Roxy Star Company is a new opportunity for adults living with complex needs including intellectual, development or physical disabilities, allowing them to participate and perform in theatre related projects. Participants will play drama games, learn acting skills, dances and songs. The aim of the program is to focus on each participant’s individual strengths, culminating in a talent show at the end of the program where participants will get to show off what they’ve learned on The Roxy stage. The Roxy Star Company will create an environment where theatre is inclusive and for everyBODY. This program is open to anyone who identifies as having a physical or mental disability who is over the age of 18.
After registration participants will be sent an additional medical form via email. Please note that for the safety of our directors and participants, those with a history of violence are prohibited from participating. Anyone who requires one-on-one support will need to provide their own PSW.
