Celebrate, Inc. (dba) Out of the Shadows Theater
Out Of The Shadows Theater, a production of Celebrate Inc. in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization focused on providing adults with special needs and disabilities the opportunity, tools, and support to explore and experience performance arts. We bring actors with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities out of the shadows and into the spotlight! In all Out Of The Shadows Theater performances, all roles are performed by actors with special needs and disabilities. For each production, actors audition for roles and actors are paired with companions, or shadows, who offers coaching, support, prompting and encouragement during rehearsals and performances. Each year our actors have flourished in the spotlight while realizing their own gifts and talents, and they have been recognized by the community for those abilities rather than disabilities. Out Of The Shadows Theater plays an important role in helping the public to be more accepting and comfortable with those who are often seen as different and we are honored to be able to spotlight our actors in quality musical productions.
