UpBeat! Musical Theater Troupe

CFCArts’ UpBeat! Theatre Troupe is a performance group for teen and young adult exceptional learners. UpBeat! produces multiple performances each year, including both plays and musicals. UpBeat! is open to actors with a variety of exceptionalities, including (but not limited to) autism, Down syndrome, and ADHD.
Through the UpBeat! program, actors will have the opportunity to attend virtual small and full group rehearsals. Individual rehearsals (one-on-one) will also be available upon request.
