Theater Arts & Music Workshops


Theater Arts & Music Workshops

The Munroe-Meyer Institute’s summer and winter theater camps are held in collaboration with WhyArts, a local arts nonprofit. The Recreational Therapy Department holds the camps, which feature individuals with disabilities and complex health care needs in theatrical roles. Performances are held at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center.

Theater Camp Details

Who: Children, youth and adults with developmental disabilities who have attended other MMI recreational therapy programs.

When: Two three-day workshops annually, one in early January and one in early July.

What: The winter workshop will be led by resident performing artists, local musicians and guest performing arts faculty, with curricula in the areas of puppetry, improvisational acting, movement, melodrama, set design, music expression, song, instrument, voice and dance. The workshops will culminate in an evening performance at the end of the third day. MMI Recreational Therapy Department staff and volunteers will supervise and support participants during the winter and summer workshops.

Why: These workshops are designed to enrich the leisure lifestyle in the areas of the performing arts across the lifespan and to strengthen community bonds with MMI participants and the creative and performing arts community.
