Oh! That Aladdin
Oh! That Aladdin was the impetus for the creation of the Centre. Staged two times, in 1994 and 1995, the performance used an integrated model where theatre students took the role of supportive chorus members, with the main roles being performed by adults with developmental disabilities.
The theme of this performance was self-esteem, and how one young rogue, Aladdin, was able to win the heart of a princess by learning to rely on himself and his inner strength. Through the process of this pilot performance, the actors embodied this message and many revealed their hidden talents, improved behaviour, and increased their self-esteem and confidence.
