    Great article, and fantastic use of drama therapy to reach this group. I’ve had the chance to see Joey Travolta’s Inclusion Film Camp in action. If you have a heart for the arts, and understand the gift that it can bring, your heart would melt if you saw the results. Plus, this could be implemented at the community level, providing social and economic benefits where the boots are on the ground. Keep you the good work American Theatre.

    The way actionplay honors each child/teen’s unique talents and challenges is such an amazing thing for a parent to experience. It should be a model for the rest of the world in how to create experiences that not only welcome but lift our special kids to express their fabulous selves!

    Great article. My granddaughter was in the play Revenge of the Godz and it was wonderful. It was so uplifting to see these teenagers give a performance that was so joyful, you couldn’t help but get caught up in it. I was so proud of her and her peers, we were there for the opening night and they received a standing ovation from the audience. BRAVO!!!
