A December 2020 SharingChange grant recipient, Backlight Productions, exists to provide opportunities in the world of performing arts for adults with special needs. Through quality training focused on the arts, Backlight students can improve speech, expression, coordination and overall confidence while earning valuable on-stage experience.
Backlight also partners with local theaters to incorporate professional actors who perform alongside students in every performance. By doing so, the organization can promote integration and emphasize community involvement.
To ensure that the performing arts extend beyond the realm of entertainment, Backlight Productions creates opportunities to inspire and influence the lives of the performers, their peers, and the community.
