Out of the Box Theatre Troupe Performance

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until May 13, 2017

The next “Out of the Box” performance is May 12 and 13 at 7:30 pm. Admission to the open seating event is FREE.

“Out of the Box” is Lakeland Community Theatre’s “troupe with unique abilities.” This theatre troupe for special needs adults consists of over eighty members… of all ages. Working with the troupe are 20 teenage volunteers, 6 instructors, and countless parent volunteers. These very unique and talented individuals share a passion for theatre, and they have a blast getting to do what they love!

The group was formed Fall 2011 by LCT staff, parents, and volunteers. They meet once a week at Lakeland Community Theatre, located in the Lake Mirror Complex. During class, they work on improvisation, scene work, dance, poetry, music, social skills, and more.

Twice a year, the troupe performs a one act musical production for the community. Every troupe member has a specific character with their own lines, and they all participate in singing and dancing in the musical numbers. This free program helps special needs individuals to find a purpose and feel the rush of performing the same way any other actor does – one of the most beautiful experiences anyone could ever imagine!

“Out of the Box” is currently sponsored by the GiveWell Community Foundation and the George W Jenkins Fund within the Foundation. For more information on the troupe, please contact Education Director Maureen McGowan at mmcgowanlct@gmail.com.
