What are Inclusive Theatre Companies?

In Inclusive Theatre Companies actors develop and perform an original musical. The company votes on a theme, creates original characters, and improvises scenes. Those scenes are scripted to become an original, one-act musical. Each performance presents two of these musicals in a double-bill.

ArtStream performances feature adult actors with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) — including autism — and other social and behavioral needs. Actors, volunteer mentors, and theatre professionals works as a team to create original performances for live audiences.
