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.
