I Can Dream Theatre offers opportunities for adults with special needs

WATCH ABOVE: Musical Director Michele Matthews and cast member Andrew Perez from I Can Dream Theatre talk to Global's Laura Casella about Remembering Titanic, their latest production.

The I Can Dream Theatre, an organization that provides performing arts experiences for adults with special needs, will be putting on their performance of Remembering Titanic on Friday and Saturday.

The story is based on a couple that is going to get married before the ship sinks, Michele Matthews, I Can Dream Theatre musical director, said.

“It is loosely based on some of the facts,” Matthews said. “It’s a comedy as well as a drama.”

The organization has grown and has become non-profit in the last year.

They now offer other programs for adults with special needs, which help them gain work experience.

“We are growing,” Matthews said. “The friendships within the cast, within all of us. It’s really a family.”
