Who is this class for?

  • Adults (18+) with and without developmental disabilities who want to explore musical theatre.
  • Adults (18+) with and without developmental disabilities who want to have fun and make new friends.

Registration should be completed by June 15th. For information on scholarships, contact us at charlotteandlois@peterandpaulsplace.org.

Ricardo Aponte will be teaching a Musical Theatre Workshop for those who just gotta sing and dance! Ricardo is a well-known Atlanta choreographer who has worked with Jerry’s Habima Theatre at the Marcus Jewish Community Center. He is the founder and Artistic Director of Theatre Platform Project, a nonprofit committed to inclusivity and diversity.

This class promises to be tons of fun while participants build skills and build relationships—with fellow students, theatre professionals, and volunteers.

Anyone who participates in the arts—music, theater, visual arts—knows how much joy it can bring, especially when shared with others. Participating in the arts can help reduce stress, boost self-esteem, improve focus, and help us feel connected to something larger than ourselves.

Peter and Paul’s Place is dedicated to bringing social, artistic, and educational opportunities to adults with differing abilities. To that end, we have committed to subsidizing these classes in order to offer them at a price that is accessible to more people.
