At The Rose, we believe theater is for everyone! Theater has been shown to spark creativity, self confidence, social interaction and positive self-esteem in all children – including those with special needs. We encourage families of children with exceptionalities to discover the many different opportunities we have available for them.
To learn more about classes for students with exceptionalities, please view our class listingsand select “Sensory-Friendly/Accessible” in the “Interests” drop-down menu, OR see the information listed below.
Classes for Students with Exceptionalities
Classes for children on the Autism Spectrum
At The Rose Theater, we believe everyone deserves a chance to step into the spotlight. While a standard Rose classroom experience can be rambunctious, noisy and not well-suited for all students, our classes for children with exceptionalities give all children the opportunity to explore their creative side and take a journey of imagination in a safe, supportive environment.
Classes for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders are available on Saturdays and on select weekdays.
Classes for children who are Deaf or hard of hearing
The Rose offers several classes that are ASL-intepreted for students who are Deaf or hard of hearing. Drama classes for children who are Deaf or hard of hearing are generally offered in the spring (March-May) on Saturday mornings. Scholarships are available for students in need of financial assistance. For more information about these classes, please email the Class Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Classes for children with Down syndrome
Families with children who have Down syndrome are encouraged to contact the Class Coordinator at email@example.com or (402) 502-4617 to determine the best class fit.
