The Sunshine Project Returns For 2020

 

12/1/2019


 

The Music Education area is excited to announce the continuation of its unique performing arts program: The Sunshine Project, for the Spring 2020 semester at the LSU School of Music.

The Sunshine Project, formerly called Prism, provides Baton Rouge-area students ages 6 through 16 with special needs (known as “Cast Members” in the program) opportunities to learn appropriate social and performing arts skills and to directly engage with their peers. It will also serve as a training ground for students in the LSU College of Music & Dramatic Arts who wish to work with children who have exceptionalities.

The Sunshine Project will have space for approximately 12 to 15 children to attend, and tuition is free! Registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis.

On Sunday afternoons (time TBA) in the Spring semester, children will come to the LSU campus for two hour sessions to learn theatre and musical skills alongside LSU students. A performance for friends, family, and public will be held in early April in the School of Music!

If you would like to register, or know families who might benefit from this program, please view the Prism Project Cast Member Application application form.

The original Prism Project was at Ball State University. Learn more about their initial program at: https://www.prismprojectbsu.org
