About Center for Applied Drama and Autism/Theatre on the Spectrum
The Center for Applied Drama and Autism (CADA) is committed to providing theatre-based opportunities for individuals on the Autism Spectrum, adults and youth with disAbilities, and their communities. By encouraging individual and collaborative success through drama in an inclusive, safe environment that celebrates diversity and the joy of the creative arts, CADA supports social and emotional well-being, growth and empowerment.
Theatre on the Spectrum is CADA’s performance wing, supporting both an adult and youth company. The focus of the program is to produce work by people with autism and other disabilities while creating opportunities to learn and practice the real life skills that theatre can teach.
