The Integrated Theatre Company Workshop

Local students with autism in Mansfield, Ohio will have the opportunity to participate in a theatre program with their peers thanks to the "Integrated Theatre Company," a collaboration among St. Peter’s Parish and School, the Renaissance Theater and The Zoot Theatre Company.

The program is open to youngsters 9 through 18. It will begin with a five-week summer camp designed to integrate participants while learning the fundamentals of puppetry, theatre and storytelling.

In the second phase of the program, students will attend two eight-week sessions (fall 2016 and spring 2017), consisting of twice-weekly classes/rehearsals. Each eight-week session will culminate in unique onstage performances with The Zoot Theatre Company.
