Matinee Performance for Senior Citizens
We have visited Senior Communities and invited them in to enjoy our production. This is the 2nd time we have done this and plan to continue every year.
The evening starts with a delicious meal. This year our choices will be chicken, chicken , or gluten free chicken Fazool or Chick Fila sandwiches with delicious sides cooked fresh.
Thursday, there is no cost to the play, it is our way to give back to the community. We have visited many senior communities in the area and asked them to attend. Those who are over 62 can attend at no charge and enjoy a sweet snack before the performance begins.
Friday, however for the dinner/theater, those attending purchase tickets $35,00 for seniors and $20 for students. The money collected goes to pay for the next year's play, renting the space, hiring the director and customs.
To purchase tickets contact Cheryl@ASP4us.org
We believe that each performance enhances the lives of all who participate. Those who volunteer, have their hearts filled with love, each and every time they interact with our actresses and actors. It enhances everyone's self worth. For the participants, they are more engaged, they work on the ability to communicate better by taking instruction, singing and dancing on stage. But most of all it gives them a sense of belonging. They have friends that they meet on a weekly basis, their own social group. Isn't that what we all want?
We are creating something new in theater. Our cast will consist of Both special need individuals and peers on stage.
Our commitment is to have everyone working together, to create friendships that will last a lifetime. The characters of each production will be filled by those with disabilities and volunteers .
We believe this will have an inspirational effect on those participating. It will help special need individuals gain more confidence knowing that a friend is near, giving them a sense of security and confidence.
Our cast members can showcase their creative talents. They become "celebrated" by their families and friends. Friends and extended family come together once a year to watch a beautiful production and to celebrate them! It is a wonderful dinner/theater experience
Please come and be a part of this special event. This will be a moment to remember, a true work of art.

We get together about eight times a year and just do fun things together. Wether it's a theme of Halloween, New Year's Eve Party, Super Bowl party, we just enjoy being together and socializing! They are just excuses to hang out together we a group of friends.
We have great laughs together challenging another team or sometimes as simple as playing a game like Bingo together.
And who doesn't enjoy a dance party!
We meet generally on a Saturday night from 6:30-8:30pm. The location is Alleluia Church 4055 Book Road Naperville, IL
