Muncie Civic Theatre is excited to offer the thirdseason of the Barrier-Free Theatre program, providing developmental care through performing arts. Barrier-Free Theatre is a therapeutic arts program, servicing adults with developmental and physical disabilities, by way of the performing arts. The program provides tools to participants developing a play, rehearsing the play, and performing the original production at Muncie Civic Theatre.

Our Therapeutic Arts Director, Tracena Marie, works directly with the participants and volunteers in order to provide a safe, fun, and creative environment. She mentors and assists the participants as they create an original script, which will be performed at Muncie Civic Theatre, May 11th, 12th, 13th. A total of 16 sessions are conducted in the September to December months which will focus on building group cohesion, trust, creativity, self-esteem, and creating ideas for the original play. Over the winter break, the Barrier-Free Director writes and finalizes the script. Another 16 sessions take place in the January to May months where the participants rehearse the script in preparation for the performance in the spring.

This is the first program of its kind in Indiana and there is limited space available. Email Tracena@munciecivic.org TODAY!
