My niece who is an actor/performer with the Harmony Theater suggested A few years ago that I volunteer to help at practices. It was the most uplifting and gratifying experience to be a part of something so wonderful! What a wonderful creative outlet it provides with such dedication and love! And the participants enthusiasm and and triumph over many physical challenges helped me to grow as a person, as well as get to enjoy the company of such fine beings!

Harmony Theater is a wonderful organization that offers our special needs daughter a place to perform and increase her confidence while performing in two programs a year. To see all those actors perform on stage brings such joy to my heart and I always have tears in my eyes when they perform their sign language songs even after 10 years. This is such an important part of my daughters life. We are truly blessed to have found and are now a part of this Harmony family.

Harmony Theater has given my daughter, Katie, a consistently upbeat opportunity to express herself as part of an actors troupe that puts on both a fall concert and spring show. The organization itself has matured and grown stronger. The commitment of its staff and volunteers to the actors
Is so strong. When Katie went through a difficult time a few years ago and had to pull out of activities, getting back to Harmony was the one thing that picked her up and lifted her spirits. Can’t say enough good things about Harmony.

I have attended Harmony performances since its beginning. Friends came with me on a fun night out a few times now. Everyone enjoyed the shows. All were uplifted by seeing the differently abled are part of our community and are benefiting so much from this wonderful progam.

Harmony Theater, Inc. has been 'home' to my son who has Downs Syndrome for 24 years. Jason has performed many roles in the Spring Musicals and always has a good time visiting with the other actors. We've enjoyed watching Jason perform, whether it's saying his lines or singing or dancing, Jason excels on the stage. We don't know where he gets that because none of the rest of the family enjoys being in the spotlight! This theater group of 50 adult actors with a variety of disabilities meets every Saturday morning to practice acting roles, sing, do crafts, discuss, or visit with other actors. Whether it's the Fall Concert of singing or the Spring Musical of acting and singing, you can't go wrong seeing one of these shows. Our actors take it on the road occasionally to provide entertainment and gain sponsors and fans! There's about 25 regulars who attend the shows from our family and Jason's friends alone. The shows are very popular! We do many fundraisers throughout the season (SEP-JUN) and our actors participate in those as well. Check out our website: harmonytheaterinc.com
