CFCArts’ UpBeat! Theatre 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. Actors ages 13-35 with any type of exceptionalities are welcome!
Through the UpBeat! program, actors and their families can choose small group or one-on-one rehearsals, or a combination of both! Currently, all rehearsals and performances happen from the comfort and safety of home through the use of video communication technology and video editing and production.
