Event description:

EPIC is working with the Department of Education and has invited District 75 (the special needs NYC school district) to come to their show. The entire theatre will be special needs NYC school students. This is a great way to introduce kids with special needs to an opportunity they might want to pursue after they graduate.

EPIC Players is a non-profit theatre group in New York that provides opportunities – both on stage and behind the scenes – for autistic adults and others with developmental disabilities. It’s important to stress that this is not a therapy group. Epic players undergo a rigorous audition process, identify as professional actors and are now finding success competing for roles with neuro-typical actors. Many of these players were told they would never speak - now they are performing in front of hundreds of people. These individuals, recognizing that they are different but not less, are increasingly advocating for themselves.
