Why YOU Should Start A Troupe


You provide the Place and Creative Team, and we’ll provide the rest!

What We Provide

We’ll equip you with everything you need to create an arts program in your city for performers with developmental disabilities.



We’ll provide personal, on-site coaching to your Creative Team over the course of a 2-year implementation. Upon completion, you receive certification as a PEOPLE LIKE US Affiliate, join the network of PLU Theaters, and continue to have access to the online and physical resources required to sustain your theater for performers with developmental disabilities.


Raising the Curtain curriculum combines years of research, development, and expertise to equip your community to teach, cast, rehearse, and platform performers with developmental disabilities. From waivers and applications to casting guides and original scripts, this curriculum is an indispensable component to every troupe’s success.


Are you ready to give people with developmental disabilities the opportunity to perform? Let’s do it!
