The Playhouse is committed to increasing accessibility to all its programs. Launch Pad is a program designed to integrate students with developmental disabilities into a traditional theatre camp environment. Space is limited.


We are able to provide support in our one-week theatre camps at both locations. We typically do not have support for our Performance Academies, but exceptions can be made.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in one of our performance academies, please contact Education Director, Ariana Moses to discuss the programs and determine readiness and support needed. Performance academies include: One week/ Four day intensives, Two and three week Musical Theatre and Three Week straight play.

Pre-Camp Preparation

  • Social story pre-camp packet
  • Welcome video (which can be individualized upon request)
  • Pre-camp meet-and-greet with staff and aides

Daily Support

Our work with families and students continues in the classroom. Additional daily resources include:

  • Social narrative signs in all camp classrooms, lunch and play areas
  • Provide personal, pocket-sized daily schedules (available upon request)
  • Detailed concrete schedules
  • A Family Coordinator who will work with Launch Pad families to assess what accommodations each child needs
  • All camp counselors and instructors will be trained in effective communication strategies for students with developmental disabilities
  • Access to comfort items such as noise-canceling headphones, fidgets, weighted blankets, etc.
  • We can accommodate personal comfort items
  • A quiet space will be available

Please note: We cannot administer medication, provide bathroom assistance, or provide personal, one-on-one aides. We are glad to work with students who bring their own one-on-one aides.
