Theatre blends some the most pure and basic of our human needs; to explore, communicate, connect, and imagine. What I love about The Theatre Lab is that they harness the power of the arts to give a voice to those who are most vulnerable in our society and allow them to cultivate those needs and skills that otherwise may have never fully developed.
