Opportunities in Theater for Adults on the Spectrum

The March 7 AASCEND Job Club will focus on employment in theater arts, and the representation of autism in theater. The meeting will feature Pear Theater’s executive artistic director Sinjin Jones, who will talk about the logistics and decisions involved in the upcoming production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. This Tony-award-winning play is based on the novel of the same name by Mark Haddon. The play’s principal character is autistic.

This is a general discussion and no specific jobs will be offered. However, if you are interested in how to become involved in theater work, or if you are already involved in such work, then be sure be attend! As always, attendees on the spectrum will offer their experience and perspectives throughout the program.
