Inclusive Theater Companies

Barrier-Free's inclusive theatre companies follow a multi-step approach where actors with disabilities, staff, and mentors come together to create original one-act musicals to be performed at the end of each season.

Inclusive theatre companies (ITC) are for adults (18+) with intellectual/developmental disabilities, down syndrome, and/or autism.
