Theater Arts & Music Workshops


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.
