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.

The Rose offers year-round classes for students on the Autism Spectrum. For more information about these classes, please email the Class Coordinator at classes@rosetheater.org. To better help us serve your child, please complete this questionnaire before enrolling in a class.

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 classes@rosetheater.org.
