Being a part of CO/LAB has been one of the most rewardingand most importantly -FUN- things I have done since I've lived in NYC.
CO/LAB Theater Group is a non-profit organization dedicdicated to providing individuals with developmental disabilities a creative and social outlet through theater arts.
Started by a group of fellow alumni from Syracuse University and a team that has grown to include artists and theater professionals from all walks of life), CO/LAB has gone on to reach over 500 individuals with developmental disabilities through over 400 theatre workshops, 20 original shows, and numerous concerts and classes at little to no cost to the actors involved.
As a former Teaching Artist in CO/LAB's Musical Theater Production class, I have seen first hand the benefits of this program - by both empowering the actors to be bold, expressive, and confident, and also by fostering a loving and understanding community for the actors, volunteers, teachers, and families who participate. It goes without saying that the collaborative work we do in class is filled with JOY.
SO - for this holiday season - help spread some JOY by donating to the CO/LAB community.
THANK YOU! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
