EPIC Players Inclusion Company Will Ring The Opening Bell At The NYSE Today

EPIC Players Inclusion Company is pleased to announce that they will be ringing the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, April 3 in honor of AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH!

In addition, EPIC's Artistic Director, Aubrie Therrien, and EPIC Company Member and star of the feature film Keep the Change, Samantha Elisofon, co-star of Tribeca Film Festival winner Keep the Change, are speaking at The United Nations for World Autism Awareness on Thursday, April 5. Empowering women and girls with autism is the theme for 2018.

Our Cabaret, EPIC4AUTISM: Songs from the Spectrum, takes place on Autism Awareness Day, April 2 at the Midtown HBO Theatre and is being generously sponsored by HBO's Corporate Social Responsibility Division. Proceeds will go towards supporting EPIC's on-going social arts programs for individuals living with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities.

Songs from the Spectrum features performers across the autism spectrum- alongside Broadway greats and rock legends such as Lord Graham Russell of Air Supply and Jay Klaitz from Broadway's Getting the Band Back Together -singing songs about empowerment, identity, and the human condition.

EPIC can also be found in residence as Anchor Partners at The Flea, the prestigious downtown theater founded by Sigourney Weaver and others.

The EPIC Players (Empower, Perform, Include, Create) is a New York City neuro-inclusive theater company in founded in 2016 to provide performance opportunities for actors with developmental disabilities. EPIC uses the performing arts as a vehicle to empower artists with developmental disabilities while pioneering increased inclusion in the arts. Our mission is to breakdown social barriers, negative myths and stereotypes surrounding this previously marginalized minority. Working with people with and without disabilities, we hope to role model a new way to use performing arts to empower artists and communities to become change-makers in their fields.
