Using a variety of dramatic techniques, Theatre Horizon’s Autism Drama Program inspires imagination, communication, and interest in personal relationships for individuals on the autism spectrum. Our classes help students develop social skills, verbal expression, empathy for others, and a sense of self worth and accomplishment. Class size is limited to provide a small student to teacher ratio.
Through improv games and creative play, students learn flexible thinking and valuable social skills in an environment that celebrates their unique talents.
This class, a collaboration between Theatre Horizon and Philadelphia Young Playwrights, introduces participants to the fundamentals of storytelling, helping writers and actors develop the skills necessary to communicate their ideas effectively. Class focuses on story structuring, building suspense, conveying emotion, and using voice and body to add layers to the audience’s experience. Through improv games and writing exercises, participants learn to create strong characters, rich dialogue, and engaging story-lines. Class culminates in a showcase of participants’ work.
