Established fine artist and therapist Carmelina Mosher, MA, LPC developed a unique Expressive Drama program that for over 25 years now, has engaged wide and diverse participation throughout the state of Connecticut.
Due to a widespread interest in having this and other expressive arts programs available to those with special needs (Downs Syndrome, Autism Spectrum, etc.), Carmelina formed the Play with Grace Musical Theatre program, which serves this community of extraordinary people, some of whom are nonverbal.
Play with Grace offers two terms:
"Songs of Life" in the Spring
"Taking Flight" in the Fall
This innovative expressive drama and music program provides participants a unique opportunity to discover new interests and talents, and to build on talents, skills and self-confidence.
Our mentor and participant partnerships encourage individuals to learn from and support one another in their personal and collective goals.
Stars will choose archetypes to portray and will perform an original song based on their character and personal message to the world.
Our Stars need your support. As mentors and community volunteers, you can help boost their confidence and courage so they are comfortable enough performing in front of a live audience.
Rehearsals and performance are all outdoors in our Play with Grace Garden theatre, cabaret style with catered dinner.
We currently have an outdoor garden theatre in Hamden, Connecticut
