Learning Accommodations for Children and Adults

Inclusive Theatre Classes

Each class is specifically tailored for people with disabilities

The Naples Players is dedicated to providing high-quality arts access to every member of our community – including the important and growing number of people with disabilities.

Designed and taught by professional therapists and teachers, each class is tailored to individuals with disabilities to ensure proper accommodation, enjoyable classes, and meaningful exercises. Separate classes are available to both students and adults, making each class an important and caring social environment, as well. Many classes are also open to caretakers and siblings.

The Naples Players is also thrilled to work with the STARability Academy to provide classes and job experience each week. Paired with The Naples Player’s Sensory Friendly performances, individuals with disabilities can access the arts from backstage to on-stage!
