Mitch and Murray Productions, in partnership with This World’s Ours Centre is proud to present  ACTING ATYPICAL, a foundational exploration of acting for teens and adults on the autism spectrum. The exciting program is hosted by Mitch and Murray Productions artistic director Aaron Craven.

Our next workshops are taking place on Sunday April 21st, 2024.

In this workshop, participants explore the world of acting with veteran acting coach Aaron Craven. In a supportive and sensory-friendly environment, Aaron guides students through an introductory look at acting, the differences between acting on camera and stage, and much more. The class includes some fun and interactive improv work, some scripted work in front of the camera and a spirited conversation between participants and Aaron about the wonderful world of acting.

The goal for the workshop is for participants to benefit from the social and emotional tools which acting can provide, to learn a bit about the craft and bottom line, to have fun!

Feedback from students and parents:

“I enjoyed the class because of the careful pacing and because other atypicals were involved, which made me feel like less of an outcast. I had a lot of fun, I’d go back in a heartbeat.”

“Aaron Craven was an amazing teacher and very patient with us.”

“I liked the exercises, redirection and advice that Aaron gave us. It was also a small group, which was nice. I prefer classes like this.”

“My son attended the Acting Atypical workshop and it was amazing. I have never picked him up from anything and seen him so happy.”
