At the Suffield High School Unified Theater performance on June 3rd, a star was born! Katie Dorman, aka "Katy Gaga", showed off her Lady Gaga dance moves and performed to Poker Face with her SHS backup dancers. Her performance was such a hit and Katie loves Lady Gaga so much that several of her fellow Unified Theater rockstars wanted to get Katy Gaga even more attention - so they took to social media!

Unified Theater on Tour!

05/08/2015 - 11:50am

This year, Unified Theater Rockstars in three cities took their inclusion and drama skills out on the road for a UT Spring Tour! Our original performance of "Inclusion Rockstars" featuring inclusion tableaux and ROAR by Katy Perry (with ASL interpretation) was toured around Hartford and West Hartford on April 2 and on May 4 in Middletown, CT by two different groups of students. Barrington HS students toured a scene and song from their production, "Career Day" around Providence, RI on April 28. All our Spring Tour performances featured our signature We Are Unified song and choreography, of course!

Each of these days was super fun and we owe all these rockstars a giant round of applause for spreading the word about Unified and inclusion in two states!
