Learning Unlimited community presents 'Hope for the Future' at Casino Theatre

Salve Regina’s Learning Unlimited community, which partners people with developmental disabilities with undergraduate student mentors, will present “Hope for the Future” on Thursday, May 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Casino Theatre, 9 Freebody St.

Free and open to the public, the presentation will feature a variety of talents, skills and abilities that will include poetry, visual presentations, video, music, sign language and acting. The program, developed in partnership with Unified Theater and Trinity Rep, expresses hope for the future through a magical poetry book that takes participants through a time travel experience.

Learning Unlimited is an educational program through which Salve Regina students partner and learn from adults who have developmental disabilities. Salve Regina students and community students form dynamic learning teams that engage in a variety of educational activities on campus throughout each semester.

The “Hope for the Future” evening and presentation is made possible by the generosity of the John E. Fogarty Foundation, with support from the Ocean State Poets, Dr. Michael Thombs, Tom Erb, Amy Canario, Mary Keenan, Trinity Rep and all who collaborated to make this show possible.
