Teaching special needs youth about theater and giving them a chance to perform on stage will be the focus of a four-day summer workshop sponsored by the Players Guild of Dearborn and the Neighborhood Services Organization of Michigan.
The goal of the four-day Starshine Children’s Theatre Workshop, which begins Monday, August 3rd, is to expose special needs children to stagecraft and performing on stage. The workshop activities and rehearsals will culminate in a performance featuring the participating youth on Thursday, August 6th at 2:00pm at the Players Guild of Dearborn.
The Players Guild of Dearborn and Neighborhood Services Organization are excited by their new partnership, which meshes with the purpose and goals of both non-profit groups. The Neighborhood Services Organization’s Life Choices unit provides services and support to children with developmental disabilities and their families in an integrated community setting. The volunteers of the Players Guild of Dearborn are looking forward to working with the special needs youth from the Life Choices unit as they teach them stage craft and acting skills.
All are invited to attend the workshop’s performance on Thursday, August 6 at 2 pm at the Players Guild of Dearborn. There is no charge for admission, and an afterglow will follow the show.
The Players Guild of Dearborn Theatre is located at 21730 Madison, southwest of the intersection of Monroe Street and Outer Drive. The theatre is handicap accessible. For more information visit them online.
