The Area Stage Company (ASC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit performing arts organization, engages the community through the production and presentation of extraordinary cultural experiences. ASC also sustains the cultural art scene in South Florida by providing a venue where fresh and exciting ideas are presented. For the past few years, this award-winning organization has been directing a significant amount of resources towards the development of an innovative performing arts program unprecedented in the world of exceptional student education.  


ASC's Inclusion Theatre Project (ITP) originated in 2014 from our belief that training in the performing arts teaches vital tools for life, reaching participants through multi-modal classes within the musical theatre medium, and helping them on their journey as they move towards adulthood. ITP serves its target population of student actors across South Florida, ages five and up, with developmental disabilities who are eager to expand their talents. Our coaches also travel to local schools to provide on-site training to individuals who might otherwise not have the opportunity to explore and access their abilities through the arts.


We aim to counter the devastating effects of the judgments placed on them in today's society, where the shortcomings of our students are unfortunately emphasized instead of helping them manifest what they are capable of achieving. Through our innovative, comprehensive format, developing actors across the board experience socially-relevant and impactful artistic interactions which inspire change and foster understanding in our audiences and community. 

WORK OPPORTUNITY:  Area Stage Company Inclusion Theatre Project is seeking an ITP ACTING COACH.
