Angels on Stage enhances the lives of children and young adults with special needs by breaking down stereotypes and empowering them to develop friendships, independence, confidence, self-esteem, and general life skills through the medium of professional performing arts.
Young people with special needs have performing arts opportunities to develop skills and friendships while changing the world’s perception of their abilities.
