A mini performance will be given at the end of the six weeks, complete with curtain call. A light snack will be provided. Taught by Debra Leopard, MA who has years of experience working with special needs actors. Line/Lead Therapists welcome to accompany the students. Each child will also be paired with a young acting student from Village Square.
