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.

Student of the Month

JOSIE

Josie is a student of the Hamilton Transition Program. She enjoys playing basketball, solving puzzles, playing video games, researching, and visiting Knott’s Berry Farm. Josie also loves to sing, dance, hike, dress up, feed ducks, and collect My Little Pony merchandise. 

Josie has been in multiple productions with Anchorless. Her past roles include Scar in The Lion King, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, Mrs. Gloop in Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, and the Duke of Weselton in Frozen. Though she has enjoyed all of her roles, she specifically enjoyed playing Scar and Gaston, as villain roles are her favorite. Anchorless has given Josie something to look forward to every week and has given her the chance to collaborate on a large project, see friends, and perform on stage. Josie loves to perform in the spotlight, and she makes rehearsals fun with her positive attitude.
