Two River Theater reaching out to children on the autism spectrum

The Two River Theater will sponsor two new initiatives designed to support young people on the autism spectrum and welcome them to the theater.

On June 10, Two River will present a performance of “The Way Back Home”.

The performance is recommended for children ages 4-8. “The Way Back Home” tells the story of a boy who discovers a single-propeller airplane, and uses it to fly to outer space.

The performances are June 8 at 4 p.m., June 9 at 4 p.m., June 10 at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and June 11 at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 .p.m.

For tickets or more information, patrons should call 732-345-1400 or visit www.trtc.org.

The Two River Theater is also launching the theater’s first Spectrum Theater classes for young people on the autism spectrum ages 10-17.  The classes will focus on movement activities and storytelling through theater games, imagination exercises, as well as exploring the work of William Shakespeare.
