Ad Lib

Thu 01 Oct 2020 - Thu 26 Nov 2020

The Watermill Theatre’s 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 nine to sixteen 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, everyone is welcome.

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

These sessions will take place online via zoom.


Thursday 1 October— Thursday 26 November (no session half term) between 5.15pm—6.15pm.

Thanks to generous funding from Greenham Trust we are not charging for this course but if you would like to make a suggested donation of £50 (or £80 for two places, or £100 for three places) per term towards our community outreach programme, we value your support.

Please note that we will be working as a group and are not able to guarantee one-to-one support for participants. If this would be important to you, please let us know and we will try our best to support you.  

We look forward to meeting you soon!
