in kids and families
Our season productions include important lessons in truth-telling, collaboration, resilience, and empathy. We watched Anne of Green Gables navigate her difficult childhood and changing circumstances with plucky optimism and grit and watched George Bailey rediscover a love for life in Miracle in Bedford Falls. In 2019-2020, we took things a step further with an enrichment program supported by the Florida Blue Foundation.
Our Education department worked with several community partners to strengthen empathy, confidence, literacy, and creativity in marginalized children across Central Florida.
At United Cerebral Palsy (UCP), we used drama strategies to enrich the lives of their clients.
In addition to UCP, Orlando REP worked with Orange County Public Schools, the University of Central Florida, Hope CommUnity Center, Creative U, ArtReach Orlando, Orlando Union Rescue Mission, Edgewood Children Ranch, ArtWorks, and the City of Orlando Recreation Centers to bring character-building theatrical programming to children across our community.
