The Anchorless Drama Class Program held a virtual Summer Showcase on August 29th! The students had a blast creating and performing, monologues, scenes, and dances! Check back in soon to view the Showcase recording.

Anchorless' first bake sale since the pandemic began was a huge success! Students and volunteers had a lot of fun selling delicious treats. Thank you to everyone who supported Anchorless by buying food.

We offer drama classes via Zoom, which take place on Saturdays from 4:00 to 5:00.

OUR MISSION

OUR NEWSLETTER

We are a theatre company that was created to show young adults and children with developmental disabilities that they will never be held down. They are ANCHORLESS.

 

Our goal is to provide an opportunity to young adults with developmental disabilities to express themselves and grow through theatre. The foundation of our company stems deeper than just a production; we strive to develop self-confidence, expression, and essential life skills, such as public speaking, in each of our students. We care about our students and unite them with typically developing peers to create a safe learning environment. Our focus is on progress, growth, and creating friendships.
