Ad Lib at The Watermill Theatre

These sessions will take place online via zoom.

Weekly drama group for young people with autism spectrum conditions. All of our youth theatre activities at the Watermill are autism-friendly. Ad Lib is especially for young people aged 9-16 who have autism spectrum conditions, their siblings, their friends and their friends to be.

Whether you have a diagnosis of autism, are waiting for one, or are keen to play alongside someone who sees the world differently, you are welcome.

Using drama and theatre games, you'll build your communication and social skillls, make new friends and have plenty of fun.
