“Out of the Box” is Lakeland Community Theatre’s “troupe with unique abilities.” This special needs theatre troupe consists of 50 members, ages 8 to 60. Working with the troupe are 20 teenage volunteers, 5 instructors, and parent volunteers. These very unique and talented individuals share a passion for theatre, and they are having a blast getting to do what they love! The group was formed Fall 2011 by LCT staff, parents, and volunteers. The troupe meets once a week at Lakeland Community Theatre, located in the Lake Mirror Complex. During class, they work on improvisation, scene work, dance, poetry, music, social skills, and more. Twice a year, the troupe performs a one act musical production for the community. Every troupe member has a specific character with their own lines, and they all participate in singing and dancing in the musical numbers. This free program helps special needs individuals to find a purpose and feel the rush of performing the same way any other actor does – one of the most beautiful experiences anyone could ever imagine!
