In January 2017, MPAC launched classes based on the methodology of The Miracle Project, which uses theatre training a means for children with special needs to find their voice through the performing arts. Nearly 20 students along with peer volunteers participated in the classes over the winter and spring.
We plan to increase the number of classes we have this year to serve more children as well as stage “relaxed” events that modify the performance experience to make our shows more inclusive for those with special needs.
