Specialty Theater

Theater for individuals with special needs.


Specialty Theater started as Scratch Theater back in 2012. Kelsey Oates founded the group for adolescents with special needs after graduating Boston University. The idea was that every week Kelsey would write a play from scratch for the group to perform. Each play could accommodate the individual actors and their abilities, giving every person the chance to be a star.

After taking a break, Scratch Theater is back as Specialty Theater and is based in Norwood, MA. All plays are available to read here.
