Carmel, Ind. (March 9, 2023) – Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation (CCPR) will hold its annual Barrier-Free Theatre performance in honor of National Disability Awareness Month. This year’s performance, titled Find Your True Love, will be held at the Monon Community Center on March 18 at 6 p.m. and March 19 at 2 p.m. An American Sign Language interpreter will be provided for the Saturday show.
Barrier-Free Theatre is a form of drama therapy that empowers individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities to create and perform original stories together. The entire creative process takes around eight months to complete.
“Our program has grown dramatically this year! We have an inclusive cast, crew, and directing team,” said Sarah Fenster, CCPR Barrier-Free Theatre Director. “Over the last several months, cast members played with different topics, characters, and scenes that resonated with them. The final performance will be a product of the many hours they spent collaborating, rehearsing, and memorizing.”
Find Your True Love is a romantic comedy with a dash of drama. Join us for romance, love triangles, suspense, twists and so much more.
“The hope is that our community can learn more about the actors, hear their true voices, and walk away with a new understanding of their experiences,” shared Fenster. “They’ve put a lot of pride and joy into this show. I’m sure the final performances will be sure to surprise and impress.”
Tickets are $12 each and are available for purchase online or in person at the Monon Community Center. Availability is limited.
