The Playhouse is committed to increasing accessibility to all its programs. This summer, we are proud to announce that, thanks to a generous grant from The Daniel and Susan Pfau Foundation, we are piloting a program designed to make our theatre day camp an integrated and inclusive experience for students with developmental disabilities. Space is limited.
